Zankou Chicken Shawerma

chris o | Sep 10, 200406:37 PM

Had lunch with some coworkers at Zankou today. I got the chicken (which is, admittedly, unreliable, but in the sense that sometimes it's the best chicken I've ever tasted, and sometimes it's just pretty good chicken, and even when it's just pretty good you still have the garlic stuff), but I took a few bites of my friends shawerma (sp?). There was something so familiar about the taste, the spices, like something I remembered from my childhood, but I couldn't quite place it. After several bites and thoughtful concentration, it hit me: Slim Jim. Zankou Shawerma tastes exactly like a Slim Jim (except that it doesn't leave the same greasy film in your mouth). So there you go.
