Meet Sol Sharjah – one of the best places in the UAE to consume some serious calories. Sharjah is becoming a bit of a foodie haven, with various speciality coffee shops and restaurants springing up in the emirate and the latest to catch our attention is Sol Restaurant. Situated in Al Buhaira near the Copthorne Hotel, Sol Sharjah serves up an amazing array of cheat day treats including shawarmas, sliders, loaded fries and some impressive looking (and tasting) milkshakes. Read on to find out more…
The Huntr sampled Sol’s shawarma sliders and our favourite was the ‘Dynamite Shawarma Roll’ (AED 28) – which features succulent chicken shawarma smothered with a spicy dynamite sauce, coleslaw, and spring onion all nestled on a perfect soft potato bun. Heaven. Another must-order dish is the ‘Batata with Shawarma’ – a.k.a. shawarma fries. Crispy, addictive fries covered with your choice of chicken or meat shawarma, and lashings of cheddar cheese, fried onions, the special SOL sauce and jalapeños. Plus you can’t visit Sol Sharjah without ordering one of the theatrical shakes, which come laden in a plethora of toppings and make for the ultimate foodie Instagram snap.
But it’s not all shawarma and fries at this joint – Sol Sharjah also aims to provide the community with “good vibes only” focussing on sharing art and music with its delicious (and rather calorific) dishes. The restaurant itself is decorated with brightly painted, artistic murals and the playlist is sure to get your toes tapping.
Insider tip: Sol is open daily from 1 pm until 1 am.
