Shawerma Birthday …

dsc00003.JPG Today, as I celebrated with Fatina her birthday, we decided to do it the Arabic way πŸ˜€ , so we went to “Zankou” to have shawerma, I’ve been craving for it for more than 7 months, and it was one hell of a sandwich πŸ˜€ …

I’ve never been to an Arabic restaurant since I moved to the states, although we have one in Pasadena and it’s only 20 minutes a way, but I don’t know, I didn’t think about it since my mom cooks Arabic food all the time (el 7amdolla), but you know.. Shawerma at an Arabic restaurant had a different taste πŸ™‚ .

dsc00002.JPG Look at this people… really.. this is one of the things I REALLY miss.. its here.. in this picture πŸ™‚ I was walking around the place like crazy, smiling, excited, just happy πŸ˜€
dsc00007.JPG Fatina on the other hand was just laughing at me πŸ˜€ , I was playing with Yara and Rama, and poor thing she was so embarrassed πŸ˜€ … who cares πŸ˜€
dsc00005.JPG Today was a very nice birthday for Fatina, she had fun, I had fun, the girls enjoyed their time πŸ˜€ .. everything was hust nice :DLook at Yara enjoying her Shawerma πŸ˜€ CUUUUUUTEEEEEEEEEE πŸ˜€

    lucky youuuuuuu…Shawerma from a rest. always has a diff. taste!! we did it twice at home so far…but it’s better from a specialized rest. for sure!!. we have a LIibanese rest. OVER here, it’s “shi laziz” but for some reason I didn’t like it. although my husband told me a lot about it…maybe I was expecting more…I dont know:p I’m glad you finally had it, and enjoyed it! 3o2bal 3andi πŸ˜‰
