Snack a Day 2008, Snack #22: Shawarma
If foreign food is what you want in Bangkok, then foreign food is what you shall have. An appointment in just the right part of town meant i would get to indulge in a Chicken Shawarma on Sukhumvit Soi 3, also known as Soi Arab.
Soi Arab is a real experience not to be missed. I urge you to go if you've got some extra time in Bangkok. It's like stepping into another region of the world, but one that doesn't really exist anywhere else. Northern and Western Africans, Middle Eastern men in various robes and head dresses, women in Burkas, and even a few ladies of the night from the nearby redlight district, all mingle on this unique street. Not a good place for a drink though. If you're so inclined, you can indulge in hours upon hours of tea drinking and sheesha smoking. Not a bad way to spend the evening.
Today was just a quick stop at a favorite spot for a chicken shawarma.
I could probably eat two or three.
