If I’m to name my most favorite piece of edible in the Gulf to date, that would be sajj taouk. At least once a week, I would order this yummy Lebanese sandwich for lunch. And many times, I raved about this in Plurk that it made my plurk buddies curious. Hence, this post.
If only it would not seem unreasonable, I can have this everyday. It’s a little embarrassing to admit, but I normally order two sandwiches and can finish both in one sitting. My pseudo name serves one of its purposes, I would oddly try to justify that one sandwich is for wits and the other one is for nuts. Haha.
Sajj taouk is basically a chicken sandwich and not exactly a shawarma. But wrapped by an Arabic bread are a seemingly specially marinated and grilled chicken (in bits), fries, few pieces of olives and vegetables. I don’t think I’ve tasted something like this in the Philippines.
