Tabouleh + Chicken Tikka
from Shawarma Snack Center [takeaway]
in my apartment
Initially, I’d gone to the main location but left upon learning that tabouleh was out of stock* for the evening. The original location had tabouleh, which shows that the kitchens are totally independent of each other.
* I find this difficult to believe, given the simplicity/ubiquity of the ingredients — bulgur wheat, parsley, onion, tomato, lemon juice, salt, sugar — as well as the time required to make the dish — 10 minutes.
The food was unremarkable, leaning towards mediocre. Dryish chicken — not really tikka. Dryish bread. Bland garlic sauce. Hohum tabouleh, mostly parsley, but fresh.
