Binging with Babish: Shawarma from The Avengers

  • Published: 10 April 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.

                    OK. I must commend you Babish on your integrity. Almost all chef Youtubers would call it "Israeli chicken", you had the heart to call it what it is.. PALESTINIAN. Thank you. Fuck the occupation and long live the Palestinian resistance

                                        Yupp same here, usually we don’t put cucumbers and we add some lemon juice to it, it’s a shame he did not try it and gave us his opinion.

                                            I wish you made it look more like our Palestinian shawerma! We make it with a much thinner piece and much longer so we can wrap it properly and I wish you made Arabic salad instead of throwing the cucumber and the tomatoes in but that teheniya is just <3

                                                            See, there's Shawarma...and then there is the glorious Döner. It's a very german-turkish thing that is done differenty wherever you go. The Fladenbrot is roasted and cut up, the freshly sliced Döner meat is put in after different sauces are applied and the comes vegetables, salad, onions and also probably fresh Kraut. more meat, more sauce. The Döner joint I like around here also puts fried/baked potato pieces, zucchini, chilis,'s all super delicious.
                                                            Like a shawarma, but better and more...well, german. Putting a Döner together properly is an art.

The chicken used in shawarma is chicken breasts not thighs. shawarma doesn’t contain tomatoes, parsley, cucumbers, green onions, it literally only has pickles for a salad. You didn’t get anything right but that doesn’t matter at least you made a donor sandwich

Then put the cucumber into the Greek Yogurt. Add Garlic, a pinch of salt and olive oil and mix. Now let it rest for at least a good hour or two.
                                                                            Add some more olive oil on top before you serve it. Forget the Dill... Please...!
