Mashawi are classic Arab food staples that consist of barbecued meat and poultry such as kebab and shish taouk. Mashawi are usually eaten with Pita bread although french fries, rice and salad are also common accompaniments. Mashawi can be eaten both as fast food in the streets or as the main course after or during the maza (appetizers) at home or at the restaurant.

The most common types of meat used to make mashawi are lamb, beef and chicken. Pork is never used in authentic mashawi.
