Fish Shawarma in Jordan

While doing my daily round of blogs, I came across this funny article in the Jordan Times via The Black Iris.

As sales of chicken shawerma dropped in the capital following the detection of avian flu in Ajloun, one Amman restaurant is serving fish shawerma to minimise lost profits.
Customers said it was a good alternative.

“I thought serving fish shawerma would be something rare that people would like and at the same time it would make up for the low sales of chicken shawerma,” said Suleiman, who began selling his specialty two months ago.

According to Janem, the maneger of the restaurant, a small fish shawerma sandwich is sold at JD0.60, a large one at JD0.90, and a fish shawerma platter costs JD1.5.
The prices are roughly JD0.20-0.30 more than their chicken counterparts.

“Though it is delicious, it leaves you with bad breath,” a customer said.

Creative and funny…
