Any real Jordanian Shawarma in LA/Long Beach area?

We spent a few weeks in Jordan this year and the shawarma was unbeliveable! Every little hole-in-the-wall place we went had delicious, moist, flavorful meat. Incredible!

A few years ago I tried it at Open Sesame in Long Beach but my memory of it is that it was vinegary and tart; not savory.

Any authentic place you know of??

      There are many Israeli places around town that offer shawarma. How is Jordanian shawarma different from the Israeli kind?

        To be honest, when we went to Israel after Jordan I just wasn't going to pay $8 for a shawarma sandwich that cost $1 in Jordan so I didn't get to taste the difference.

        I'm near Orange & Brookhurst fairly often so I'll give it a try--thanks!
