Hometown Grill is one of the new spots on Shebab Avenue since I was here last. And a very welcome addition it is! They advertise as Turkish grill, but I think they are pretty generic as far as grills go. Not that I'm complaining, they have all the usual stuff, which I think is great!
Since I had a rather large lunch and wasn't feeling up to a full meal I thought I'd try out the shawarma. They had the usual chicken and meat (beef I'm told) and then something that started with an M that I can't recall precisely. They said it had cheese in it. Hmmm...kind of a risk, but I took it.
Wow, that was a tasty shawarma! I know I harp on this, but in Yokosuka all of the shawarma stands (even my favorite one) just don't spice the meat very much. Sometimes I wonder if it's just nostalgia that keeps me complaining, but no...it really can taste that good! If they added cheese it must have been a white pasty kind because it was smeared nicely. Good, I was worried it would be kind of processed monstrosity. There were some pickles in there and one or two french fries. It was a bit lacking in greens, but oh well, it was still delicious.
Well, I really wish I had time to come back and try some of the great looking rice dishes they had (machmous, biriyani and something called a mandy). Who knows, maybe I will get the chance to go back, it's on the way to and from work. The Hometown Grill gets a Very Good.
