Yalla Yalla (from the team behind Safari Dubai) is a hole in the wall shawarma joint, just a stones throw from Lan Kwai Fong. They serve up freshly made flatbread with halal chicken shawarma, falafel, and Indian style butter chicken.
There are just 3 seats at the bar in Yalla Yalla, as it’s mostly geared up for delivery or take-away, but they’ll deliver all the way down to Hua Yang, so fear not if you live outside the third ring road.
The chicken shawarma wrap (32RMB) was tasty, but it was the falafel wrap (22RMB) that stole the show. Crusted with sesame, the light, crunchy chickpea parcels sit happily drizzled in tahini with crisp pickled jalapenos and salad. You can add avocado if you like, but why reinvent the wheel. If you’ve really had a rough day and fancy the ultimate indulgence – their Shawarma Submarine (58RMB) is layered French fries, shawarma and salad – grilled under a decadent layer of cheese. You wont have room for seconds.

Yallayalla Kebab and Shawarma both are super delicious. I think it’s the best restaurant in Chengdu.
Wish you all the best and go ahead.
