Searching For The Best Shawarma in Lagos: Charcoal
Had Charcoal shawarma and I think I saw Jesus— ErrMaGerrrd (@MotleyMusings) January 5, 2015
In fact, one twitter user described his experience as seeing Jesus and a few Cherubs.
You lying fam, how dare you use the Lord's name in vain?
NOSA: Charcoal also came HIGHLY recommended by our friend Jollz.
FOLLY: What I liked about it: it was super slim and not messy at all, and so very easy to eat.
NOSA: I agree. My fat ass wasn't a fan of it being slim for obvious reasons. I respect the whole lack of messiness. Very often you find poorly constructed shawarmas that just fall apart as soon as you open your mouth. This one was different. Like a neat JSS1 boy. Very RVRE (did I use that correctly ?)
NOSA: I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have any chicken ready, but I think the suya meat was genius. They put things I love in one beautiful marriage. #SuyaAndShawarma2015.
FOLLY: I'd never have ordered a beef shawarma but I did so for one, science and two, because this was a quick lunch time shawarma. The man who took my order said it would be an hour for the chicken to be ready and aint nobody gat time for that.
NOSA: I thought this was infinitely better than the shawarma at Murphis. Not even close. The sauce on this was really good. Like, really really good.
FOLLY: OMG Nosa, that's a lie and you know it!
I also liked the sauce. The meat (suya meat) was a bit hard, I'd liken it to kilishi that hadn't been fully cured. There was too much cabbage but hey it was crunchy cabbage so I guess it's a plus.
Shawarma not salad, okay I'm whining.
NOSA: That's why you get sausage in your shawarma. What did you expect that space to be filled with? Miracles?
FOLLY: A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.
FOLLY: Maybe we went on an off day but man I really expected more because this shawarma came highly recommended.
NOSA: I liked it the first time, but I went back to get the mixed shawarma...I love it.
It'll never top Ebeano in their prime, but it's really close. Speaking of Ebeano...
OK just feel it's necessary to announce that I'm off ebeano shawarmz. They been slacking lately so gotta find a new spot.— Heartbreak Tobz (@TobiWilliams) January 4, 2015
