Lunch with Lauren: Shawarma Non-stop

by Lauren Townsend for The Aha! Connection

It has been a minute since I had some delicious shawarma and Shawarma Non-Stop’s made me want to do a little yummy dance. The owners of Mediterranean restaurant, Fresh 4 U, opened middle eastern or Lebanese spot, Shawarma Non-Stop, right next door. It’s a casual, quick-service concept with dine-in space or carry out and also has 3rd party delivery. You can build-your-own pita pockets, plate or salad with a choice of chicken, steak, shrimp, fish or veggies. I chose a plate with half chicken, half steak on basmati rice and added veggies to it. There are a vast array of fresh toppings like cucumbers, jalapenos, pink cabbage, pickles, and feta. Once you have your toppings, you choose a sauce and I agreed to curry on the chicken and garlic on the steak. Quick explanation: I don’t typically pick a curry, not because I don’t like curry, but my favorite curry place closed in little 5 points like 11 years ago and I obviously haven’t come to terms with it. And it is the standard by which I hold all curries. Long story, not short, this curry and chicken was SO good. I sat alone in the their dining room, closed and my eyes and just enjoyed that chicken curry.

The steak and garlic sauce was also delicious and I do suggest the added veggies, but it is a lot, almost two meals. The ingredients are so fresh and I would recommend Shawarma Non-Stop to anyone. In addition to the basmati rice, they also offer lentil soup, cheese fries, regular fries, house salad and house-made desserts. Shawarma Non-Stop is right across from the Piedmont Hospital in Buckhead, closer to 85. I would park behind the CVS, where there is plenty of parking. Definitely swing by for a quick bite; you won’t regret it.
