Many years ago, a guy named MZ Beg from Saudi Arabia… …came back to his homeland He wanted to introduce the Saudi Arab food in Delhi! So, after many years of experience and with the help of some new machines… …he decided to introduce a new dish from a small shop in New Friends Colony… …Shawarma! Did not understand yet? Come, I will show you! Today, we are at the iconic AL BAKE… …and we are serving their famous Chicken Shawarma! So, guys we are here! What is your name? Suraj! We are here with Mr. Suraj who makes shawarmas here! How many shawarmas do you make in a day? Sir, it’s not possible for us to count that! But, then also give me some idea? I guess around 10,000 shawarmas are made in a day! 10,000?! What are you saying? There’s always a long queue here We make shawarma at a really fast pace. You guys can see how fast this is being made! Exactly! People come from far away places just to eat this shawarma! And customers start fighting if they don’t get their shawarma on time! It’s really difficult to stand here in front of this heat, I don’t know how these guys do it! Does this thing revolve? Sir, this is revolving! Like, Padvamati… (sings a song) Have you ever tried the original Saudi Arab shawarma? Or you’ve only eaten the Delhi one’s? No, sir never got a chance to try Saudi Arab’s shawarma… …but we have learnt how to make it from a Saudi owner only! Yes, yes! It’s exactly the same as it is in Saudi Arabia! The only difference is that we make this according to Indian taste so that people can enjoy eating it here! Yes, exactly! What is the major difference? I think the shawarma here is better than Saudi Arabia’s! Guys, see! Indian shawarma is better! See how fast they are doing it! He really wants to show us his speed! For the camera Look at his amazing skills! Full power! Please have this! Sir is also working here with us! Of course! We will help you with this! We are with Mr. KK who is the manager here… …and he is working here since the last 17 years! Sir, Al Bake is running strong from past so many years… …what is the story behind it? The story behind this is real… …the owner of Al Bake lived in Saudi Arabia for almost 20 years… …in the same industry! And he launched the same exact thing here in India… …and that too according to Indian taste! So, it means that there is a difference? Definitely, the taste is different! It’s a combination of India & Saudi Arabia’s taste! He actually worked really hard for this! By hard work I mean that in a professional way he curated the taste to suit Indians… …and he made sure that it reaches every customer… …and then he even took feedback from customers to improve! Exactly! Al Bake has grown so much, initially people in Delhi didn’t know what a shawarma is! So, how did this happen? Usually, when a new food item comes nobody knows if it will be liked by people or not! It takes time sir! It did take some time But luckily for us, it got famous pretty quickly… …and till now it is very famous among people! You can see with your own eyes how many customers come here! We do take-aways and home delivery as well! We serve here as well There is no trouble as such… …the only problem is for the one’s who are trying to copy us! They are not able to replicate this taste We have our own manufacturers, products, bread…everything! We don’t purchase anything except for raw chicken… …that too we marinate it in our own style and then we serve it! Amazing! This is our speciality! You will get it fresh! Initially when it came, he must have thought a lot about it because… …usually at initial stages… …I thought it was exactly the same but then he changed it later… …but he knew in the beginning itself what will work so decided to put the Indian taste to it He knew that people here won’t be able to eat it bland… …people in Saudi never used spices in this But here in Delhi, we want everything extra and spicy! We want everything with masalas! We want spices in our food along with greasiness! And that is the perfect Delhi taste! So, what do think is the reason for Al Bake’s popularity? Like how did it become so famous suddenly? There are two reasons for its popularity- 1. Customer got the same exact taste every time 2. The service is here is actually very fast! Yes! There are so many different outlets in Delhi for shawarma but Al Bake is for sure the best… …and can’t be compared with any other joint! So, he has said it. Nothing beats Al Bake! Thank you very much, KK sir! You gave us lots of information! It was a really interesting conversation! And now it’s time for us to taste the shawarma! Your order is – 1 plate shawarma, half changezi chicken, 1 roasted chicken, 2 tandoori rotis! I didn’t know there is all this variety at Al Bake! Like, I only thought shawarma is there but they have other food also… …we have changezi chicken, tandoori chicken, chapattis… …and of course, their shawarma! Let’s try some! Oh my God! Neha?! This was not at all scripted, guys! I didn’t know she was coming! Please have a seat! Thanks Shashank! I thought you will never ask me to sit! Sometimes people skip that! This is Neha, she is my friend and colleague… …and she is doing something really cool…a new project… The Rasoi Project! …which hopefully will be better than even Served! So guys, we are doing a new video show called The Rasoi Project… …and we want your support… …the thing we are starting, you guys would have never seen it before! Home made food! Mom’s hand made food! You know which food, the secret food recipes that our moms & grand moms used to write down in a diary! My mother never used to make notes! Come on, let’s eat this now! Take some chapatti, shawarma and chicken! Many college students come here, even I used to come here when I was in college! Have you even been here during your college time? Yes, but I’ve only tried their shawarma! Did you know they have this much variety of food available? No, I am seeing this for the first time! Who orders this? Like is this great? Chicken changezi! First, should we try this? For which we actually came here! This is Al Bake’s famous shawarma! I think, no wonder it’s so hyped! It’s actually iconic! Genuinely, I wasn’t expecting such good taste! It’s actually very good! Let’s try the other food as well! Let’s try the Changezi chicken! Even I want to eat! (acknowledges a stranger) He is taking a selfie with us! Now, lets get back to the food! Woah, it’s spicy! I didn’t realize because of the selfie, but it’s pretty spicy! Personally, I love spicy food but it’s too spicy even for me! You realize it after a while… I want chicken! Oh, is this mine? It’s good for friends to share food! It’ll strengthen our friendship! So Neha… Now that you are here, so help me decide how was the food here? If you were Shashank, if you were fortunate enough to be Shashank… …how would you rate this food? By the way, we are just talking about the shawarma right now… …the shawarma we just had today! Out of 5 or out of 10? Out of 5! You don’t watch Served?! I watch Served, but I always feel like it should be out of 10… No, tell me out of 5! Out of 5, I think I’ll give today’s shawarma a 4! That’s very high! How much would you give? Like the thing is like, today’s shawarma was really good and it’s genuinely surprising! But, after thinking about all the places where I had shawarma earlier… …I would give it a three and half! You have to remember that this place introduced a new dish… …Indian shawarma! And you can’t take that away from this place! For that reason only you should come and visit it! But you can take away the shawarmas after you visit it… …because I think we are going to do it right? Please! Yes, we will take some with us! And all this food too… We never waste food! So, I guess that’s about it! You guys want to come in the video? We have a lot of friends of Shashank here with us, guys! Anyway… (crowd cheering in the background) I don’t why people are screaming? Because of the food or because of the girl! Excuse me? Anyway, we wanted to tell you that… …we really appreciate the fact you guys showered us with so much love on our last video… …in your comments! You showed so much love in your comments! We tried something new and you guys accepted it! We are really grateful! Like always we would love for you to like, comment, share, subscribe… …and tell us how you liked this video! And also look out for The Rasoi Project! If you love your mother, then you have to watch The Rasoi Project Thank you guys! Thank you Shashank! You guys have to watch it now! Till then I am Shashank, this is Neha and you have been…SERVED guys!
