In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Reef Cafe


So I've posted a few times about Reef Cafe already. You guys know the story. Family-run Lebanese joint in Allston; delicious food. Unfortunately, the Mexican place right next door had a fire earlier this week. This has caused some power problems and whatnot on the block and Reef has been closed for a ocuple of days. Hopefully they'll be open again soon... I won't be back in Boston for 6 months after July, so I need to load up on my Reef intake for the rest of 2005. Anyway, in my previous posts, I never posted a photo of the true lifeblood of my Boston diet - Reef's chicken shawarma sandwich. I finally got a shot of it a while back.

chicken shawarma sandwich - $4.75 The sandwich is just their chicken shawarma, tomatoes, pickles, and lemon-garlic spread from the gods. Everything is rolled up into a pita and put on the little grill for a bit. The result is amazing. I'm not a big fan of pickles, but this sandwich has really converted me. The sourness of the pickle complements the chicken and the lemon-garlic perfectly. I have honestly lost count of how many of these sandwiches I've consumed in the past year. 40 might be a good ballpark number... Then again that sounds extremely high. I dunno. But I've eaten a lot, and you should too!
