What is the deal with shish taouk?

Fredster | Aug 28, 2006 05:53 AM

Ok, correct me if i am wrong but what is advertised as shish taouk in Montreal is in reality chicken shawarma. The real shish taouk is a chicken brochette, just like the shish kebab is a beef brochette. Why the difference in terminology? Everywhere else in North America, it's called chicken shawarma? What is the deal????
