The culinary iterations or similar versions of the shawarma across the world make it hard to determine its origin. Some describe it as part of traditional Levantine cuisine, a cuisine poplar in the Middle East and Mediterranean. Others argue that it was invented in Turkey because the word ‘shawarma’ was said to have originated from he Turkish world “çevirme,” which describes the turning process of cooking the meat.
