In the Land of a Thousand Restaurants...

Bobbi got home from Dayton last night and was up for dining out. It was getting late to do the bicycling thing (the Monon closes at dark and only a fool dodges drunks near the strip with only a flimsy Trek or Giant as protection,) and so we dropped the top and headed for the newest feature in Broad Ripple, Poccadio Moroccan Grill.

The layout at the counter was like a cross between a Subway and a Baskin-Robbins, as the enthusiastic staff plied us with taster forks and encouraged us to sample the various tempting bits of North African cuisine. I settled for a plate of shawarma over rice, slathered with a delicious harissa of tear-jerking spiciness, with a side of lettuce drizzled with a cacık dressing and some cinnamon-honey orange salad.
Also? They deliver. Don't hate.

Wow. I kind of can't get over a Tarantino based McDonald's commercial. It just seems so very not standard public image for them.

Have you seen the new Avengers movie yet? I'm just gonna say that Shawarma plays a role in it.

bluesun,

Regular VFTP readers might even remember me blogging about it. ;)

Why don't they say "Please" in Israel?

First Chris Byrne, and now you, and I still have no clue what a schwarma is.

Or, since it seems to be Jewish, "I still don't know from schwarma."

Drang: I had to look it up, too.

Turns out we have a restaurant here that serves it, but they're Greek so they call it a gyro (good place, too).

Yum.

They had donner kebab at the German DFAC yesterday. It was perfectly edible. :-/
