Dish with Trish at Ta-eem Grill

Lunch at Ta-eem Grill trying shawarma (chicken)for the first time!
Shawarma is a Levantine Arab or Arab meat preparation, where lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, veal, or mixed meats are placed on a spit (commonly a vertical spit in restaurants), and may be grilled for as long as a day. Shavings are cut off the block of meat for serving, and the remainder of the block of meat is kept heated on the rotating spit.

I really enjoyed the live band playing Gypsy Kings music (My favorite).

There’s also another Red O location in Newport Beach (that’s my next stop). I’ve heard it’s worth the trip! (hint, hint)
