1. Shawerma Reem (Amman – 2nd circle)
One of the most famous sandwich spots in Amman, often has a crazy line up and is the cause of traffic on the 2nd circle. Shawerma Reem is renowned for their shawerma sandwiches, it’s a tiny store with just barely enough room to go in and order. Almost everyone craving a mid-night meal after a night out wants Reem! We must also note that they sell over 5000 Sandwiches a day. and is one of the very few spots in Amman that got featured in the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/29/world/middleeast/29shawarma.html
2. Shawerma Day’a (Amman – Abdoun Circle & Jaber Complex, Madina Munawara St, 7th Circle, Jubaiha, Jabal Al Hussein, Taj Mall)
Day’a is another favorite in Amman, their shawerma is wrapped in Shrak bread (thin whole wheat bread) and can be ordered by sandwiches (chicken or beef) or by platters that have meat, veggies, fries or wedges, pickles and garlic mayo. Day’a has 8 different branches in Jordan & one branch in Kuwait. Al Day'a has also opened up in Montreal, Canada and it is rumored that a member of the same family has opened the branch overseas.
