After the success of his lair Adar, Tamir Nahmias has opened this crackling spit-roasted meat spot, still deeply anchored in Levantine territory. Nestled between two shops in the Passage des Panoramas, his brick red-tiled kitchen boasts a spinning shawarma spit featuring a mix of turkey, lamb and chicken, all doused in lemon and ras el-hanout, which bronzes up over the embers… and then gets sliced and diced into plump pieces of pita bread for a relentlessly satisfying sandwich. The other day at lunch, seated around one of the tiled benches, we wolfed down one with carrots, pickles and red onion drizzled in amba sauce made from mango, turmeric and chilies, served with a cone of fries with yogurt, citrus and cucumber sauce, or a naughty combo of pickled cauliflower, olives and guindilla peppers. Another option worth checking out (for those who fear the embers) is the falafel sandwich topped with hard-boiled eggs and zucchini… before a sweet ending to the meal, with a pair of maamoul, those shortbread cookies stuffed with a creamy date paste. // Pica Bidon
