Spitz does one thing and they do it well, the doner kebob. (there are supposed to be two little dots over the O but I don’t know where that button is on my keyboard) What is it? It’s Turkish street food. Also known as Shawarma or Gyro depending on what country you are in. An awe inspiring tube of layered meat rotates around a fire crisping the edges to a crispy and salty perfection. The meat is shaved off with a straight razor type device and crammed into pita bread with veggies and sauce. I order mine crammed with french fries as well because, #yolo. They also have an excellent beer selection. Cheers.
There is nothing better on a hot muggy day in Thailand than a Leo beer. Cheap, refreshing and full flavored, this beer will soothe the pain from that Muay Thai fight you just lost.
Here is a tip so you don’t sound like a tourist. Singha beer is pronounced “sing” the “ha” is silent.
2 A.M. You have been at Gold Room sucking back several of the $4 PBR and tequila specials. (more details on Gold Room in a forthcoming post) You catch your friend’s band at Lot 1 across the street and then finish off the night by dancing your beer and tequila soaked ass off at the Short Stop.
After last call you stumble to the street, hungry for something substantial to soak up all the cheap booze you have been pounding .
Fortunately you are in Echo Park, the land of the bacon wrapped hot dog. You can find a sweet little Mexican lady grilling up these hefty bundles of heartburn on virtually every corner. A mere $3 will score you a bacon wrapped dog, grilled onion, jalapeño , ketchup, mustard and mayo.
Tums not included.
