Getting your shawarma fix

What is shawarma?

After sitting through 142 minutes of “The Avengers,” these superheros taunt your hungry bellies as you watch them consume a feast of shawarma. What is shawarma? Shawarma is a middle eastern meat preparation, where lamb, goat, chicken, turkey, beef, or mixed meats are grilled on spits and served on a plate, on a pita, or wrap. But this description could never do your taste buds justice.
