Chicken and Rice Guys in Medford Sq.- Lamb Question

opinionatedchef | Jun 7, 201612:15 AM     1

In case anyone else is 'late to the take' on this place, we have really enjoyed both the chicken and the lamb/beef versions of this simple menu. The meats are very flavorful and moist on their own (though there are sauce options) and the Carolina-style rice is toothsome.We always get extra meat , and 'veggies'(chopped tomato and cukes) and one box of this feeds both of us. The owners were really smart to mimic the successful business in NYC, and their choice of Medford for their 2nd brick and mortar location- is also very smart. This Medford location has a continual stream of very multicultural customers, and on our 2 dinner visits, we have noticed alot of young males, many coming after sports practice.

I do have a question and wonder if anyone knows this. I really like the shaved lamb/beef, but I notice that it is pretty salty(mitigated when you eat it w/ rice or salad), and it reminds me of the shwarma that many places buy in- that is also salty like this. Does anyone know if they buy in their shwarma and then cook and shave it in-house, or do they make it themselves? If they buy it in, then my friend may be able to get nutritional info (esp. sodium) she's looking for. TIA.
