In Other News – 30 September 2014

2 min read


I find it very hard to believe that the people who saved New York (AND THE WORLD!) form a horde of invading aliens had never in their lives had the pleasure of eating a schwarma, those middle eastern pockets of slowly vertically spit-roasted, shaved and then flash-fried bits of meat, accompanied with sauces and vegetables

Here, if you’d had Schwarma, it’s likely been courtesy of Mi-Vami or the increasingly ubiquitous Anat – but if you want something a little more authentic, I’d suggest heading down to The Schwarma Company in Norwood, nestled in Johannesburg North East.

It’s a great place for not just schwarmas, but a cornucopia of related foods; Laffa wraps, falafel, superlative humus and tahina, shish kebab and some of the best chicken livers you’ll ever have. They’re not what I’d call cheap, but portions are huge and you’ll leave with a full belly and a smile on your face.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
