Wow, this was really good! I loved all the flavors and the pickles were actually a really great addition. It added a great tartness that I wasn’t expecting in a shawerma sandwich. It was super sauce which I love even though it gets messy eating. Noms!
Bon Tempe Lake.
love shawarmas! in India we get them as well but I bet the one u had are authentic
Yeah, we have a lot of mom and pop restaurants that bring their recipes directly from their homelands.
Oh, that’s what Iron Man was talking about at the end of The Avengers! 😉
I had to look up a video clip! Lol, it was funny! But I’m surprised Iron Man has never had shawarma. 😉
That looks amazing!
Yeah, I love shawarma!
The dish is Arabic originally, the pickles are an Israeli addition. In Jerusalem most Shawarma places display different pickles bowls and fresh salads, for each to top as they please. Yummy! 🙂
Omg, thanks for the info – I never knew that! And it makes sense since the restaurant where I got this is called Old Jerusalem. 🙂
I grew up in Israel, so I know a bit about the food in the region. I’m glad I was able to add a bit of culinary info even to you, with all your food travels… 🙂
Ooo, I’ve wanted to travel to Tel Aviv for the longest time! I’ll make it there one day.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. It has great beaches, fresh and versatile foods and easy going fun loving people. 🙂
