    Original German Doner Kebab

    I am very particular with what is considered good Doner Kebab, especially the fact that I spent my Junior year of High School in England, where there are Doner Kebab places on just about every block. This place really fit the bill of what a good Doner Kebab is supposed to be. I am very apprehensive of Mall food. My family and I happened to walk by this spot and were intrigued, I went in just to be curious to see if the food was Halal (which it is 100%). We went in and all of us tried something different and each of us were pleased with our food. I…

    Shawarma Sandwich @ Mamoun’s Falafel

Biting into the…

    Carl’s Philly Cheesesteak @ Yankee Stadium

    According to my wife she’s been a hardcore Yankee fan since she was six years old. At the beginning of the season Yankee’s pitcher Mariano Rivera announced that he would be retiring this year. So when Mariano Rivera Bobblehead Night rolled around she wasn’t gonna miss it. After entering the stadium I headed straight to Carl’s Steaks on field level. Having grown up in New Jersey, about half way between New York City and Philadelphia, I’ve come to love Philly cheesesteaks and I’ve definitely had my fair share. From Carl’s website, “Carl’s authentic Philly Cheesesteaks start with thinly sliced sirloin steak grilled to perfection. We stay true to our cheesesteaks and…
