When I was told that I would be going to eat shawarma in Bnei Brak, I definitely was a bit confused. What could be so special about shawarma?
However, Bandura is shawarma with a twist; Shawarma shop 2.0. The place has a vibe closer to that of Chipotle (the hip yet fast tex-mex chain that Americans know well) than the grimey place on the corner hawking this mainstay middle eastern street food.
Bandura, which is Arabic for tomato, is located at the beginning of a lovely pedestrian walkway, surrounded by sushi restaurants, cafes and busy business people looking for a bite on their breaks.
