#1 I had a McShwarma at an Israel McDonald's once. I crapped like a wild gorilla for two days afterwards. Miserable.

I ate some good schwarma in the UAE when I lived there for a year in '01 but this guy's looks much better. I don't think the vendors I tried before were Syrian. They have a good reputation in Detroit it seems.

I used to put chips in my pizzas.... that worked great. And this is the second guy on earth I see adding chips/french-fries into his shwarma.... THIS I understand. He knows what he is doing.
