First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the hiatus - a lot has happened in the past 10ish days. But, nothing stops me from eating lol
I'd like to call today Middle Eastern cuisine day. Never in my life, have I indulged in so much delicious Middle Eastern food in one day. It all started when one of my colleagues suggested we go to the local shawarma place for lunch. I thought "ok, why not?"
For those of you who do not know what shawarma is, it's basically heaven in your mouth. Haha. A more precise definition: "is a Middle Eastern and Southeastern European sandwich-like wrap of shaved lamb, goat, chicken, turkey, beef, or a halal mixture of meats. The meat is placed on a spit, and may be grilled for as long as a day. Chunks of fat within the meat ensure that the shawarma stays juicy." (Wikipedia is usually not a reliable source but this seems just about right)
As you can see, I ordered a lamb&beef shawarma which was embellished with glazed onions, tomatoes, and parsley. OMG Was it scrumptious! It was so delicious that I was tempted to order another one but my fat ass reminded me of why I should resist. Not only was the food top quality, the staff was very nice and the decor of the cafe made you feel like you were at a cafe in Marrakech.
I highly, highly, highly recommend this wonderful little spot in Brookline/BU area. I couldn't help it, but I took home a sweet crepe for dessert. I ate the giant crepe in 2 minutes :) PS. The owner has notified me that the restaurant will be offering some crazy deal this week on www.buywithme.com. Check it out!
