Okay. I’ve avoided this for a week now. I have not seen The Avengers, nor do I really care to. Matt can’t stand the super hero thing. I’m more of a Batman kind of girl, and I don’t even see those movies in the theaters. Sure, I have a small comic book collection, but they’re pretty much all on Slave Labor Graphics and feature artists like Jhonen Vasquez and Roman Dirge. Oh, and The Hulk will always be Lou Ferrigno in my heart. What I can’t look past is the attention the shawarma scene is getting. Just Google “the avengers shawarma” and see what I mean if you haven’t seen the movie.
At Ro Ro’s Chicken — a famed Lebanese joint in Hollywood — the manager says shawarma sales jumped 80% in the days after the movie opened. We’re told the same thing happened a few years back when a baba ghanouj joke was featured in “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.” – TMZ
So without further ado, get out there and get some shawarma! Tangierine Cafe in Morocco at Epcot is our top pick, featuring both lamb and chicken shawarma.

See? I told you we love this place! After splitting a Lamb Wrap, we decided we had yet to have enough lamb. We also wanted to try something new, so we ordered the Chicken and Lamb Combo Shawarma Platter. It comes with sides of Hummus, Tabouleh, and more that delicious Tangierine Couscous Salad we had at lunch. It also is served with fresh Moroccan bread
