      This was good; but, didn't quite remind us of the shawarma we're used to at the restaurant we go to. It wasn't bad; but, i will continue my search for the perfect shawarma.

      I loved this recipe! I did serve Tzatziki instead of the garlic sauce because my children like it and I tons of cucumber in the garden. Quick and easy to do. Will make again soon!
