Chicken Shawarma Sandwich
at World Winners Snack
Mission to Jordan, Day 5 (see previously 6.157 Double Lamb Chop).
In Amman. Arrived Tuesday. Wednesday thru Saturday, I’m participating in a workshop to support countries in strengthening their legal frameworks to restrict the marketing of junk food to kids. Going back Sunday evening.
Upon our return to the city, I finally got a chance to eat dinner outside the hotel — the first time since my arrival in the country three days ago.
The only establishments serving local fare within walking distance were a pair of shawarma joints. Fine.
The manager, perhaps upon seeing my camera and sensing the blog, made it a point, twice, to say that the food is Syrian in style. Sure.
The food was okay. Tasted American — and I don’t mean that it tasted like Arabic food in America but that it tasted like American food : cheesy chicken wrap, fries with ketchup, cole slaw, pickles. Not a bad thing necessarily, though I was hoping for something more … exotic. Oh well.
