A Shawarma Sunday

IMG-20191117-WA0000I am not sure why the Shawarma has eluded me until today. I am a pretty adventurous eater and I have ventured beyond my shores many times.  Somehow, and someway, this delicious morsel has never found its way onto my plate.

If this was a secret to anyone, the post credit scene from the Avengers certainly did away with that. I have to admit it was a cool scene–not worth sitting through endless credits for, but certainly worth fast forwarding to when I inevitably purchased the Blu-ray.

I also cannot claim any kind of difficulty as these restaurants are all over the place. On my commute home from work there must be more than twenty of them.  I have just never stopped at any of them.

Needing sustenance, but not desiring to make a big deal out of it, we found ourselves at a placed called Tasty Shawarma. While the name sounds inviting, I am not sure it is memorable or likely to spawn a chain.  It was easy enough to spot last week when we were walking through the area, though.  I guess that is what made it today’s choice.  Knowing conclusively where something is usually means you aren’t going to be driving around in circles, spouting phrases like, “It’s around here someplace.” or “I could have sworn it was in this plaza.”  Also, if you happen to be out for a walk on a cold Autumn (though with the snow you would think it was winter) day, you’d like to feel confident that you won’t freeze.

After ordering, I have to admit that it was rather tasty and didn’t leave me so full that I was going to struggle to get home. Luckily for me, my girlfriend ordered the beef when I ordered the chicken.  This allowed us to share a few bites and gave me information to order the next time–yes, there will be another time–we go there.

The location was decently decorated and featured quite a few booths to sit in. I have to admit, I really like sitting in a booth rather than chairs.  Sadly, the place was rather chilly.  I don’t know why, but it seemed colder than it was outdoors.  This is definitely something unappealing as we close in on true winter conditions.

So, Today’s Perfect Moment is not merely the Shwarma, but food adventures for everyone.

Is there a food you’ve been meaning to try, but just haven’t gotten around to yet?

  1. We had Lebanese immigrants in our neighbourhood a few years back that opened a little diner type restaurant and omg. They made shawarmas among other tasty meals and we often went there. Fast food made with real ingredients and so much tastier (and better for you) than any chain place I’ve ever been to. 🙂

    I’ve never tried Shwarma before either, maybe I need to venture out & find some, too! I always make my boyfriend order something different so we can try more than one thing & totally prefer booths, too!
