Gyros are mystery meat. Shawarma is still in one piece, I gotta go that way.

I am still calling shenanigans on your tourney structure. These are both fast food things! Can we get a ruling from M_L?

Bracket # 2 of the Convenience Food Death Match is live-! Spout off or sit down and shut up. This is a poll, so look at it on a real browser, okay? Tapatalk is nice for phones but we should look at real computers occasionally.

I am quite disappointed no physical challenges have been forthcoming as yet.

Which bracket is melange in?

This is brutal. Two sons of doner kebab? Brother against brother. Rough.

I am a geologist, so my known definition of melange is ... probably not what you were referring to. What are you talking about?

See, this is what happens when you take the geekery too deep.

I would need to see a short brief from either side and then I will set the date for oral arguments.

I have zero dogs in this fight but I am not a huge fan of the taziiiizzzziizizkkkiii sauce stuff.

Best ones in town are at The Greek Wraps up by Arrowhead Towne Center. They shave the meat fresh off the spit to order, and if you order the large size they bake the flatbread to order.

While I loved my very first Shawarma at Al Hana, gotta go with Gyros here...but only the "real" stuff (where you KNOW what the meat is!). Had many a delicious one at Greektown in Detroit back in the day.
