First Look: Quick Delight’s New Chicken Shawarma
Last week I swung by the latest addition to the Kwik Meal empire, Kwik Delight on 3rd Ave. and 45th Street. I was interested in sampling their brand new chicken shawarma, which isn’t offered at either of the other two Kwik Meal carts (how could I not, right?) In a Iot ways, I feel like chicken shawarma is chicken shawarma (much like gyro is gyro, if leave it on the spit long enough), but the white sauce and hot sauce are what Kwik Meal is known for, and they clearly make the difference.
As for their famous lamb, a few commenters remarked that it was chewy… but for those who are unfamiliar with the Kwik Meal carts, it kind of goes with the territory.
Unlike every other lamb over rice cart in Midtown, which just uses gyro meat as their “lamb”, Kwik Meal uses actual lamb meat which they marinate themselves. In other words, it’s never going to be as easy to chew as gyro- and the tenderness will vary from sandwich to sandwich.
As for their fish, which is also really, really good, Muhammad said he will maybe start offering it at the new cart next week (if he has enough customers to support it.)
