Nigerians love for sharwama is deep, maybe deeper than the Lagos lagoon. This is more true when you ride through the streets of Lagos and see the numerous sharwama joints that line it.
The Arabian snack has found a place in the heart of the Nigerian menu list enough that popular DJ Xclusive actually made a song about it with the video showing a trio of girls hit a sharwama joint for some rolls of the tasty snack.
Well, just in case your mouth is watering for some chicken, beef, lamb, veal or a combination all wrapped up in flatbread, along with hummus, tahini, pickled cabbage, or other accompaniments, here are some cool joints you could go get it.
Maybe it’s their name, or its simply the fact that 01 Sharwama really know the sharwama game. Despite its expansion, the taste, the quality and the service delivery is still standard.
Lekki, Surulere, Ikeja and even up to Ogba….you are sure to find 01 Sharwama spots.
This is another joint that the name just speaks for itself. Best Sharwama started out in Surulere but has soon gone on to other parts of Lagos. The ambition in the name is even the more reason they serve some of Lagos’ best sharwamas.
Just like the name, it is difficult to solve the riddle of why the sharwama from this place is just so good. A long-standing sharwama joint at Mega Chicken, Lekki, the brand has now expanded to Ikota and the tasty is still sphinx-like as well as yummy.

Shawarma & Co
The first thing about this place is how they fooled us to buy suyarma only to discover that there is no Suya in it. However, we forgive them because that is quite creative and way COOL!!!
