Shish Tawook

When in of my favorite restaurant was Nadhmi in awesome grill run by a bunch of Lebanese men and they made the best shish tawook ever....served with lip smacking hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh and pickled jalapenos........And you know what?...... Lebanese men are very handsome and wonder I went to Nadhmi often.

My shish tawook did not come anywhere close to Nadhmi's but definitely good enough.
