My new favorite place for a quick bite is one of those Middle-Eastern style cafe’s where they have the two rotating spits, one with chicken and the other with lamb…you know those places: they shave off chunks of meat from the big mound with some sort of knife and then put it in a pita pocket or something. Delicious.
Anyhow, I got to wondering whether these things are all that healthy for me. I stick to the chicken, but the thing tastes so damn good, I couldn’t help but wonder whether they deep fry that meat before sticking it on the spot, or maybe just soak it in a tub of grease/oil overnight…I mean, that glistening sheen on the meat sure doesn’t come from wholesome butter-free baking alone! That, and the meat sort of looks like the “hot dog” of chicken…but sure does taste good.
Anyone know just how the chicken is prepared before the stick it on that spit? I’ve got a sneaking suspicion this might actually not be very healthy for me.
