Shoarma, Shawarma etc.

Anyone from Europe? I thought someone might be
familiar with Shoarma,Shawarma,etc. I visit the
Nederlands quite often and I've noticed that many
shoarma bars serve 3 sauces. One is a hot
sauce(red in color), another is an oil based sauce
with onions and something else(also red) And of
course the white sauce which I don't care for. is
anyone familiar with that? Does someone have a recipe for the red sauces? I'm extremely internet savvy and I can't find a trace of those recipes anywhere. Please help me, I need a shoarma fix.

Shoaroma Brodja...ahh yes. I always used the cucumber sauce, not to unlike tazikki(The whit sauce). I think the oil one was garlic, onion,cumin(or corriander,I think) and red pepper if I remember correctly. Can't remember the hot one.

Never did get into satay on my cone of french fries, but felt great to put mayo on and not get looked at like a looney.

Welcome to the board,btw.

I'm a malt vinegar gal, myself.

I have never heard of a red sauce in a shwarma. Shwarma has middle eastern origins. I assume it must be some fusion sauce that the place you eat at adopted for their taste.

Traditional Shwarma normally is smeared with hummus.

I make a version that is catered to my taste buds and use the shwarma meat (can be roast beef, chicken or lamb, thinly sliced). I like to place that on a warm pita (toasted slightly with butter) and smear hummus and a garlic mayonnaise on it. I then like to make my own pickled cucumbers and onions in vinegar with parsley and also some hot green chilis and then spread that on the shwarma as well.

It's then ready to be enjoyed.

I've done alot of research on Shoarma(spelled that way in Amsterdam) and it varies from country to country, even neighborhood to neighborhood. In Amsterdam it comes in a pita shell with 3 sauces which seem nearly impossible to find. Maybe an Amsterdammer can help? Someone must know what i'm talking about!

Mayonnaise on chips unless I am having fish 'n' chips, when it is and always will be vinegar (you can take the girlout of England but...). I love ketchup, but its for my burger, not the chips.

(Half Baked, I am SO glad I am not the only person that doe that with milkshake and chips....I really hate MacDonalds, so if it is unavoidable I get a milskshake and pinch other people's fries to dunk, lol!)

I'm afraid I have never got out of the airport in Amsterdam...although have spent many stopovers there..they are always too short, so I can't help.
