best shwarma in new york area
where is the best shwarma restaurant in the area
But who has authentic lamb shawarma, and who saves money by making it with turkey and padding the turkey with chicken fat and beef fat to hide the dryness of the meat? I know there was a place on Coney Island Avenue which let you pick from a turkey spit, a lamb spit, and a beef spit. But they moved to a bigger fancier location and no longer have such good food. Seriously, so many kosher places are focused on cutting costs that quality really suffers.
In my opinion, best (kosher) in Manhattan are:
1) Azuri Cafe (http://www.azuricafe.com) and Murray's Falafel (http://murraysfalafel.com
)2) University Pita
3) Golan Heights (across from YU - Amsterdam Avenue btwn 186&187)
4) Olympic Pita - 38th btwn 5th and 6th
I also would give a special mention to Olympic Pita's Brooklyn branch
Can someone please tell me where to find University Pita? I went looking for it and found Num Pang Sandwich Shop…
I like Olympic Pita (on Coney, I had a very bad experience in Manhattan) they are tasty but probably not the "best". I've never had Pita Hut's lamb shwarma, but I was never impressed by anything I got there.
I've heard good things about places in Syrian neighborhoods in Brooklyn, McDonald and Kings Highway area, but I don't know anything in specific.
