Assiette Shawarma (shawarma plate): beef on a shish + rice + potatoes + salad + pita + hummus + garlic sauce.
Mazaj, Brossard, Montérégie, Québec. May 29, 2012.
On a pretty lame segment of Taschereau Boulevard (is there one that isn’t?), in the midst of car dealers and more car dealers, is this little lebanese joint serving classic food from the old country. But beware, you won’t find anything special here. They’re not reinventing the wheel in any way. But the food and service are just the way you like it. Tasty and sweet. Mazaj, which means food in arabic, is what you come for, and that’s what you get, period.
Apparently filmmaker Micheline Lanctôt had an idea for a script where the main characters had to stroll along Taschereau Boulevard from start to finish and back in forth for eternity as a punishment for their sins. A real painstaking infliction for anybody. Something you wouldn’t even wish to your worst enemy. But you know what, I wouldn’t mind at all, as long as I can stop by Mazaj for a little shawarma.
On Taschereau, near Pelletier.
