Neil, Gerlie and I were searching for a nice restaurant for lunch. In Stephen’s Avenue, you’ll find lots of bar and pubs. Most of the good restaurants are scattered all over Calgary. I suggested Falafel King because I have been craving for chicken shawarma for a long time. Neil and I used to always have a Chicken Shawarma Plate in English Bay when we don’t feel like cooking or when we wanted a treat. I love everything in their shawarma plate. The tabouleh, chicken, the greek salad and even the pita and hummus dip. Everything was just lovely and addicting.
So we got in and I was not impressed with the place. I din not like the ambiance, it was a bit dark inside and gloomy and the server was not very accomodating. When she gave me my shawarma plate, I was a little disappointed on how it looks like. I saw the drying chopped parsley on the side. I was expecting tabouleh on my plate. Then I wondered what’s the pink thing on my plate as well as I haven’t seen something like it before and I was so hesitant to eat something I do not even know. That’s the only thing I did not like though. The extra Baklava and Falafel on my plate made me happy.
I tried the chicken, hummus and rice and it was pretty good. I though it’s not too bad at all. But I can’t stop comparing it to the one in English Bay which is way much yummier. I did eat everything on my plate except for the drying parsley and the pink who knows.
All in all, the experience wasn’t too bad. Maybe I’d go back when I crave for a chicken shawarma plate again. Neil and Gerlie enjoyed their Donairs.
