Binging with Babish: Shawarma from The Avengers

  • Published on Apr 10, 2018
  • Joss Whedon didn't just bring dynamic characters, dazzling action, and rapid-fire quips to the MCU - he brought one character's singular hunger, a hunger that grew like a virus within the Avengers themselves. A hunger...for shawarma. Solemnly munch along in silence this week as we marvel at a carnivorous carousel and puff up some pita.

    That looks fucking delicious, not gonna lie. Here in the UK I only ever had kebabs at cheap joints when I was drunk as hell. Then I did some travelling around Europe and had kebabs and gyros in Berlin and Budapest. Man, they were tasty as hell, although I imagine the homemade shawarma in the video is even better.

    This is some baby shwarma. You better make a true eastern-russian delicacy called Shawarma (Shaurma). Filled with all the leftovers you find in the kitchen ( chicken, all possible vegies, carrot "Korean-style", fried potatoes, etc.). The sauce for it is based on garlic, kefir and raw eggs and the whole thing is wrapped into the huge "грузинский" pita. Sometimes it is infused with the chemicals of russian ecology and it creates a "Cheese" pita. The whole thing usually sells for less then 2 bucks somewhere near the local dumps, but man, it is worth its money and risk. So i dare you to try making a true Shawarma.

    the assembling is very very wrong its soooo annoying!
    first off, tahini is usually with beef shawerma, some people add it with their chicken shawerma but its not the originial.
    second, instead or with tahini, the chicken shawerma ALWAYS HAS GARLIC SAUCE its ESSENTIAL to annny shawerma! the more the better!
    third, WHERE ARE THE PICKLES AND THE FRIES INSIDE THE SHAWERMA? Its the most important thing in a shawerma besides the chicken! and we never add cucumber and tomatoes?!
