Shawarma Spot has opened up at 2418 18th Street in Adams Morgan. So within two weeks time we’ve had two new shawarma spaces open up in Adams Morgan. Last week I wrote about Shawarma King opening up on Columbia Road. So I have a bit of a problem. I’m a huge fan of Shawarma King on Columbia Road but I want to be fair to Shawarma Spot on 18th Street, so I’m proposing a shawarma taste off. I can’t participate because the owners know me and I don’t want any special treatment. So this is where I need some volunteers. I need some folks who love shawarma to volunteer to choose a weekend and on a Sat. go to one place and on Sunday go to the other. I’ll report on your findings. Any takers? Free Pop T-shirts for the first three volunteers.

The photo really doesn’t do this one justice. The owner tells me it’s from ’72.
