Shawarma is a popular street food in Cairo. It is made by stacking marinated meat on a vertical spit. It is then shaved off and sauteed on a flat grill with tomatoes.  You can serve it on long rolls, round rolls, or any type of pita or flat bread. Top it with Tahina or hummus and some pickles if you like and you've got a great sandwich.
