Well, I finished work today and I was starving so I thought Id grab the 2-for-1 Shawarma deal that many of the locations seem to offer. Although I wasnt planning on it, I looked over at Farhat's and to my surprise, the whole place was cleaned out. No signs, empty inside, completely shut down.
Ok, well I figured no big loss, Ibrahims is the better option(im not sure if Shawarma Empire offers 2-for-1 deals or not), so I pulled in. Well, it seems that Ibrahims is now under new management or they just changed the menu and pricing, either way, its more expensive.
First off, 2 Shawarma and a drink now cost almost $11, I think it used to cost around $9. Secondly, the people are nickle and diming us now charging extra for things that used to be included. I asked for Hummos and the chick told me it cost $1 extra now, and it was free a week ago when I went last. Secondly, I asked to get the Shawarma with a mix of Chicken and Beef, which should be simple enough, but nope, that now costs $1 extra.
I just got one chicken and one beef. I gotta say it all tasted great, and I was completely stuffed halfway through the second(beef), but I dont like how they are raising the prices. I guess now that Farhats isnt offering them so cheap, Ibrahims doesnt feel obligated to follow suit...
Anyway, just thought Id let you know, and RIP to the least loved Shawarma place on Lawerence of Arabia!
