Shawarma vs. Doner
Shawarma is the most popular Middle Eastern dish in comparison to doners. The dish's name is derived from an Arabic word meaning "turning," as it's prepared with a stack of meat grilling on a vertical grill. This delicacy belongs to the Arab-Middle Eastern region.

Doner kebab, a popular street food kebab variety, is similar. To cook vertically, thinly slice the meat and stack them over each other. Doner kebabs are from the Turkish-Middle Eastern Region.

Major Differences Between Shawarma and Doners
Variety of meats
Initially, the only two types of meat used to make shawarma were lamb and mutton meat. However, as the dish became famous, other varieties of meat, such as veal, turkey, chicken, and beef, were introduced. The main ingredient is the lamb fat that is placed between each layer of meat to keep it moist.

For doner kebabs, the original recipe uses lamb or mutton too. But as the dish became increasingly popular, different varieties of meat started being used to cater to all types of customers. The only protein that's NOT used for any of these dishes is pork.

Cooking Method
For shawarma, the layers of meat are stacked to slowly grill on a rotisserie as the rod continues to rotate. Once the outer layer has been cooked, it can be shaved and used to make a wrap.

Doner kebabs can also be cooked in many different ways. They can be grilled on fire, coals, oven or fried in a skillet. These kebabs can also serve as a stew, similar in style to Tas kebab.

Shawarma is prepared using a standard method of cooking and preparation. Whereas for doner kebabs, the recipe can vary according to where it's being prepared. This dish can be found in Egypt, Turkey and Arab countries. Each country has its own cooking method.

Serving Style
Shawarmas are served in two ways only: wrap-in bread or a platter where each element is placed separately. In comparison, kebabs are served on skewers in plates.

Topping and Garnishing
Shawarma is often served with tahini and hummus. These are some very important condiments that make a great shawarma.

Doner kebabs on the other hand are served with tomatoes, pickled cucumbers and onions, as well as tzatziki sauce and yogurt.

With a population of over 1.3 million residents, the city is the eighth-most populous in the United States and the second-most populous in the state of California after Los Angeles. The city is the seat of San Diego County, which has a population of nearly 3.3 million people as of 2021.
