Braised Beef & Lamb Shawarma Kit for 4-6

Traditional Lebanese shawarma is made with beef top round and lamb fat, but ilili’s version is made with slowly cooked brisket and lamb shoulder. A symphony of spices, citrus, wine, and vinegar flavors the meats. Bring the most popular Middle Eastern sandwich to your home!

Since it first opened its doors in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood in 2007, the elegant and upscale ilili has introduced countless New Yorkers to authentic Lebanese cuisine, perfected by the Massoud family in Beirut over the course of more than 100 years and today prepared with care by Owner and Executive Chef Philippe Massoud. At ilili, Massoud expertly crafts a sophisticated blend of modern and traditional Lebanese cuisine, drawing influences from the span of the ancient Silk Road trade routes.
