Eating contest in Concord in December

I've been going to The Mediterranean daily for their lamb shawerma for about a year now. I have to say that it's the best meaty deal I could find. Shawerma the size of a burrito for $6.95, and they use Niman Ranch lamb. Sumac can be kind of strong, so I ask for no sumac. My next favorite there is the chicken kabob ($7.50). The flavors are very good and the place is very clean.

They're having a falafel eating contest on Sunday, Dec. 12 at 12:30 pm. The winner will win a lunch for two (wrap, salad, and drink). The two runners up will receive a voucher for a deluxe falafel wrap. You'd have to sign up in person. I've only eaten their falafels twice, but their falafel is very good. The entry fee for the contest is $3.95. You can call for more details.

The Mediterranean is located at 1847B Willow Pass Road in Concord. Phone: (925) 825-0608.
