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.
