Dare try a Donald Trump-inspired shawarma?

31 October 2016

Moscow cafe chain Rolls Race have introduced a dish inspired by the Republican presidential candidate — a shawarma-style wrap, topped with yellow sauce to resemble the politician’s signature hair.

A Hillary wrap is also on the menu, Twitter users reported, although images of it are proving to be less popular.

The ads for the American election menu have been widely discussed on the social media, with some users noting that Russian elections never inspired such a fast food phenomena. The ads were accompanied by slogans “Taste the Trump” and “Lick the Hillary”, with the cafe’s VK account explaining: “taste the candidates and see who is most appetising and democratic”.

The wraps will be available until 8 November, the day of the US election.
