Olympic Cholent?

Olympic Pita has started serving cholent on Thursday nights. Not exactly what one expects to see there. At first I thought perhaps it would be a middle-eastern twist on the theme, perhaps with some elements of a North African hamin, or perhaps Yemeni spicing.
I joked to the manager that it tasted "just like Savta Masouda makes". But actually it's a bog standard Ashkenazi cholent; decent, but nothing spectacular. And no kishke.

I suppose for the Syrians down Kings Highway it might count as exotic ethnic food. Why should we Jaydubs have all the fun?
