Bay Ridge: Karam’s Chicken Shawarma Sandwich
This is not some run-of-the-mill chicken shawarma that you’ve drunkenly consumed from whatever food truck happened to be around when you got the brilliant idea to try and soak up the alcohol sloshing around in your stomach. No, this is so, so much more than that. I don’t know exactly what Karam does to get the chicken so juicy and flavorful, but it’s rare to have shawarma this tender and perfectly spiced. Beyond just the chicken though, is the pungent lemon-garlic sauce that you’ll find yourself craving whenever you’re not eating it, and the crisp pickled vegetables that add texture and brightness to this intense sandwich.
