Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Moody's Falafel Palace (foursquare.com/venue/21279)Adriel Irons (foursquare.com/ferrum26)
What exactly is shawarma?It's meat on a stick. It's this big vertical rotisserie
where they're roasting this meat and letting it marinate for hours. Then they
carve off pieces and put them in a roll-up or on rice.
It's that spinning
cock-like thing over there?Yeah.
Why doesn't "shawarma"
ever get used as a hilarious euphemism?I'm sure it does. "I will show her my shawarma!"
In what ways is Falafel Palace superior to pizza?It's less cheesy. Don't get me wrong, cheese is good stuff.
But I feel like meat on a stick dripping in fat is a little healthier than
cheese on a plate dripping in fat. That's the story I would stick to.
Would you eat food if
your survival didn't depend on it?I would. In fact, I wish I was able to eat only when I
wanted to taste something. It's annoying that I have to eat a couple meals a
day ‘cause, yeah, you're hungry, but you've got other stuff to do. You
obviously don't get to eat something good every meal. Like, a granola bar on
the run? I wish I could just skip all that.
