Shawarma Tacos


Lebanon goes to Mexico for this delicious fusion creation. Shawarma Taco, or Tacos Árabes, is a Mexican taco style that was heavily influenced by the Middle Eastern immigrants that arrived to different parts of South America. When the spices, meat-cooking styles, and respective wraps of tacos and shawarma collided, Tacos Árabes was born.
