......................

Mediterranean food is becoming more and more popular
I like it quite a bit - the key to it is the uncommon spices
some of the joints - the meat is dry - and some of the joints hit it right
meat that is called "shawarma" is cooked in a different way and if it's done right is very tender

beef shawarma:

I had a 10oz Turkey Pastrami sandwich with swiss cheese on Rye. It was a big sandwich but it is the only thing I will eat today. I think the Kroger Turkey Pastrami tastes better than their regular Pastrami.



Much too much meat for my taste and you appear to be missing the spicey mustard. I'm not sure what the proper ratio of meat to bread is, but that far exceeds it.
I do agree turkey pastrami is superior to regular.


Actually that looks like the normal amount for a typical NY deli. I've seen them go to ridiculous extremes, especially with pastrami+corned beef combos:





I can get three sandwiches out of a pound of roast beast.



Never had roast beast before. Sounds interesting.



I think I saw it on Mulberry Street.

I’m pretty sure Shawarma is middle eastern, not Mediterranean.

But you are correct that both cuisines are gaining popularity.

I have seen quick service chains popping up for both, Zoes Kitchen and Naff Naff

When I lived on Long Island, the only place to get Shawarma was a Turkish place and to me, it is the same as a gyro served without sauce.

I'm not a big fan of hotdogs, i'll have one occasionally, but I load it up with lots of condiments. Just toss my chili, cheese and onions on a bun and i'm happy.

I prefer hot dogs that seem less ‘watery’. Nathan’s now available in my Wegmans. The lettuce is a great idea instead of a mediocre hot dog roll.
