Chicken shawarma in foil from Chateau Beirut, West Chester, OH
Chicken shawarma from Chateau Beirut, West Chester, OH

My brother had visited my mom earlier in the year and HAD to have shawarmas during his visit. So when I visited, my mom grabbed some chicken shawarmas for me, as well. The chicken shawarmas were from a Lebanese restaurant called Chateau Beirut: Gyro Subs in West Chester, OH.

I ate the chicken shawarma wraps a few hours after my mom brought them home since she brought around lunch time, but we had them for dinner, so they were kind of like semi-leftovers.

The shawarmas came nicely wrapped in foil to help with holding everything in place. I usually don't like tomatoes in sandwiches and wraps, but the tomatoes went pretty well with the shawarma. While the chicken shawarma had a lot of garlic sauce, it didn't seem overwhelmingly sauced, which was good. My favorite taste in the shawarma was the taste of dill pickles. The chicken was a little bit dry, but it was still good, and the pita bread was perfect; it wasn't hard and stale or too mushy, even after it had been sitting around for a few hours. The sauce, vegetables, and chicken made a nice, well-balanced savory, garlic taste.

Firebirds BBQ Smokehouse Burger

I had a part of my boyfriend's Smokehouse Burger and french fries from Firebirds as leftovers. The Smokehouse Burger came with BBQ sauce, applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and red onion.

I usually don't like burgers with BBQ sauce, however, as leftovers, I loved the Smokehouse Burger. The meat was cooked medium and was pink. The meat was very good, and the sauce didn't overpower the burger. The burger bun also wasn't soggy, and it tasted great.

The french fries that came with it were a little bit dry, but they still tasted pretty good, and they went well with the burger.

Panda Express Meal

I had Panda Express leftovers as wake-up food in the morning.

The Chow Mein noodles tasted fine, but they were a little dry, and there were too many chunky vegetables.

The Honey Walnut Shrimp was deliciously sweet with a nice honey texture and some crispness. I could definitely do without the walnuts, though.

The String Bean Chicken was good with a nice savory taste, and the string beans weren't too shriveled.

I had some of my boyfriend's Orange Chicken, which was very sweet (sweeter than the Honey Walnut Shrimp). It was also a little too filling for me, but it was still good.

I also tried his Beijing Beef, which was sweet, too tangy, and chewy, and I didn't care for it at all.
