Watching shawarma being sliced off a spit can be one of the most sensual experiences in food, and being able to try that juicy blend of meat immediately after can truly leave you flush. The vessel you choose to get that shawarma inside your body, however, is completely up to you.
In downtown Santa Ana, CA, there’s a food hall called the 4th Street Market. Inside the market lies Falasophy, a Lebanese-fusion eatery that serves both traditional dishes and modern interpretations.
The dish boasts a fresh batch of salted fries, slow-roasted steak shawarma straight from a spit, cilantro garlic crema, jalapeños, pickled turnips, and a special cheese blend. If you’re feeling particularly peckish, you can always order a side of falafels to pair with your fries.
Next time you’re in the Santa Ana neighborhood, be sure to swing by and grab a plate of these savory shawarma fries. If you’re hankering for something sweet, the food stall also offers Nutella baklava.
