Ever since Tony Stark mentioned getting shawarma in the Avengers movie I have wanted to try it. if you don’t know what shawarma is that’s ok, I did not know either. It’s a process of cooking seasoned meat on a spit, kinda like the way they cook meat for gyros. Now that Sandweesh in Old Town is open on the corner of Michigan Ave and Cass Street I had to check it out and guess what. They serve chicken shawarma.
I would say the best way to describe Sandweesh is it’s like a Mediterranean version of Qdoba or Chipotle where you pick your meat, either Chicken, Lamb ( traditional gyro style) or falafel ( which I need to go back and try). you can either get a bowl, wrap or salad and then you pick your veggies and sauce. I got a chicken shawarma with pita chips and it was delicious. Sandweesh is a nice change from the usual burgers and tacos. I highly recommend it if you want something a little different.
