Anywhere in the DC/Bmore area that's like Amsterdam Falafelshop but with Meat?
Where I used to live, there was a pita place with a toppings bar similar to Amsterdam Falafelshop in Adams Morgan, but you could get chicken or lamb shawarma as the main ingredient instead of just falafel. Is there anywhere like this in the metro area? I love the toppings bar and the whole notion of Amsterdam, but I'm not wild about falafel - it's more about putting up with the falafel in order to get the rest of it, and if I could have meat instead I'd be thrilled.
Shawarma King? I haven't been in a couple of years, but when I went, I thought it was pretty good - not worth going way out of your way for, but good. The owner was very nice and talkative.

Roti is somewhat similar. Not as many toppings, and you don't do it yourself, but their hot sauce is to die for.
Old City right down the street on Columbia Road! They have felafel and schwarma, and the same type of toppings bar.
if you are in the Baltimore area, Tahinas in Owings Mills would fit the bill.
Falafel, beef and chicken options in a pita. Extensive topping bar. Alsoa Frites (French Fry) sauce bar similar to Amsterdam.
I happen to know the owners of Tahinas used Amsterdam as a prtotype to the kind of establishment they wanted. It's alot slicker and cleaner than Amsterdam though.
