Shawafel opened today (after a soft opening this weekend) at 11am at 1322 H St, NE. Their Facebook page says:

“I, Alberto Sissi, will be opening a Lebanese Cuisine on Monday, August 15, 2011 called Shawafel. 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 Lebanese way which is made from scratch with my family’s secret sauce. All our meat will be bought from local farmers, cutting it, marinating it and then skewered on the vertical spit. Same goes for the chicken shawarma. We will be serving spreads such as: hummus and baba ghanoug. For salad options, we will have Tabouleh and Fattouch as served in Lebanon. A side from other vegetarian options, we will be serving a cauliflower sandwich that is topped with lettuce, tahini sauce, pickels and fries. For the night goers the french fries sandwich should be satisfying, it is a signature sandwich that we will be offering; the topping remains a secret.”
