Alsalam - Enough with the hype!

I'm sorry but I tried it tonight and the shwarma at Alsalam (which has been praised on this board) is no big deal. Granted, the place has certain qualities that make it ripe for cult Chowhound status (it's divey and in out-of-the-way Bay Ridge), but I can think of many places that offer a superior version. For starters, Mr. Broadway in Manhattan (it's clean and conveniently located, but don't let that deter you) makes a far more sophisticatedly seasoned one.
