My friend Jenny told me about Jacob’s Shawarma since she knew how much I love shawarma and it was just a few minutes walk from my store.
Is he Jacob? He reminds me of Ben Affleck and Chris O’Donnell.
Amazing that they’re open 24 hours.
A strong aroma of spices assaulted my senses I soon as I stepped in the small restaurant. I imagined how flavorful my shawarma was going to be.

I went there on a Friday and luckily they still had chicken because I didn’t feel like eating salmon shawarma.
I took a picture of someone’s order. I think it’s chicken kebab.

I was surprised at how huge my shawarma was. I had it cut into half and tried it. I couldn’t even taste the chicken since all I ate was the tomato and raw onions which I don’t like. I ate the chicken side and gave away the veggie side as well as the other half.
Needless to say I didn’t like it. I’d rather have a smaller shawarma with more meat and much less veggies. So far my favorite shawarma was the one I had at Manda Centrale.

This was the first time I’ve seen shawarma heated in a panini press.
I also tried the bite size baklava and it was just ok. It was definitely better than the one at Greeka Kouzina.
