The Shawerma Review

What a day today. A lot of crap happened. The highlight though would have been when a bedouin in a white pickup pulled over to start a fight with me. Some fucking people. I was in the left lane, he was on the right, we were passing in-front of Jeita in Salmiya when he starts moving to the left and is about to hit me, so I honk my horn. The guy proceeds to move to the left starts slowing down and then stops, gets out of his car and starts walking towards me. I was like what the fuck. The guy wasn't big or anything and I am six foot one and weight 83KG, I could easily have fucking kicked his ass, but, if I did, I would be 100% sure I would have to look over my shoulder the next few days because next time I would see the guy it would be him, with his brothers, their sons, their friends and most probably all carrying metal pipes. Or thats at-least how the myth goes. So instead of provoking a fight, I stayed cool, I had a hundred other things in my mind and I really didn't need more issues. After he said what he had to say, which was basically don't honk next time, he left. The guy wasn't aggressive or anything, I think he realized I was bigger then he was and didn't really try to push for a fight. Whatever the case, I felt like a pussy afterwards, I could have kicked his ass, plus it was gonna happen in-front of a Lebanese restaurant whos employees I all know. I don't know, its just weird, it was the first time I walk away from a fight and I am always trying to find an excuse to fight with someone. Anyway, I am gonna start reviewing shawerma places every now and then. Today I am starting with Chicken Tikka. Yes they have shawerma and they are really crap. I rarely find shawerma uneatable. There is only one place I have ever found a shawerma uneatable and that was Famous Shawerma in Souk Sharq. Tikka's shawerma was eatable but just poorly put together. The bread felt 2 days old, and the whole thing was just tiny. The guy was stingy on the chicken which I really hate. Its like the year 2005 and their are still shawerma places that are stingy, hard to believe. The garlic wasn't bad, its strong and will stink your breath. The shawerma cost 250fils and came in nice Tikka branded wrapping and a red Tikka branded paper bag. No pickles with it or anything. Out of a total score of 5, I would give Tikka a 2. My scoring charts is the following [1=Never going back / 2=If no other place around, will do / 3=good shawerma, just nothing special / 4=A favorite, will definitely keep going back to and recommend to people / 5=Absolutly the best shawerma place in the world, the ultimate]. No place has ever scored a 5. Famous Shawerma got a 1.

I could stand Tika shwarma it just didn't do it for me, the place just looked wrong for it. I agree on your score. But in that are they are some other good ones so there were other places around.
