ABU DHABI—Sandwiches are very important, and when you live in a big city, you expect to have a lot of competition for the best between two slices. However, I have given up on finding a decent Western sandwich—not counting the hamburger as a sandwich—in the capital city, other than a club at Shakepseare’s and a few golf course restaurants.

Except for shawerma, that is. Indeed, I have become a full shawerma convert, thanks to my wife, Kalpana, who lived the first nine years of her life in Dubai, where she developed a fondness for it.

My new go-to Arab pocket sandwich joint is Shish Shawerma, located in Khalidiaya behind Ali & Sons Volkswagen, just off the Corniche. What’s the draw at Shish Shawerma? Quite simply it is a very delicious shawerma sandwich.

You have a choice of chicken or beef, and I cannot choose between the two and always order both, usually sharing the chicken with my wife and 5-year-old son. I think the quality that makes the SS sandwich an outanding shawerma is the toasted flat bread. In a way, it tastes more like a panini, but no matter what the intent of the cook, the result is the same: tasty, tasty, tasty, perhaps also due to the fact that the sauce is spot on for me, not hot at all and quite tangy.
