Shawafel to Open Late May/1st Week of June on H St, NE – A Note from the Owner

“Dear PoP,

This is Alberto Sissi, I am opening a lebanese shawarma and falafel quick served restaurant, the name comes from the two words combined “Shawafel” we will be serving chicken, lamb and beef mixed shawarma the traditional way which is made from scratch. we will be buying all our meet from local farmers cutting it,marinating it, and then skwered on the vertical spit same goes for the chicken shawarma. we will be serving spreds such as hummus and baba ghanoug. salads tabouleh and fattouch,for vegeterian option we will be serving a coliflower sandwich that is topped with lettuce, tahini sauce, pickels and fries inside the sandwich. for the night goers the french fries sandwich should be satisfying it is a signature sandwich that we will be offering, topping remain a secret.Our hours of operation will be opening every day at 11:00am and closing sun,mon,tue at 9:00pm and weekend open till 3:00am.

My expertise in the restaurant business comes from a long journey with Jose Andres and Think Food Group their excellent customer service and attention to details taught me how to treat a guest and make them come back, also on the cooking side i was given intense training in the shawarma making at Rimal restaurant in Paris ( which is owned by the Khoury brothers, Growing up in Lebanon and moving to Washington I come to realize that not one place offers the real shawarma that’s what made me decide to be a pioneer in making people relate to the countries they lived in or visited through the experience they will get at Shawafel.”

Sounds awesome! Looking forward to hearing what folks think in a few weeks. Shawafel will be located at 1322 H st NE.
