Inevitably your order of meat shawarma will contain a few pieces from the exterior of the spit -- crisp, even crunchy, and enjoyable in its own way, like the edges of pork carnitas. But the majority of the meat is so tender you might think it had been braised. The flavor has the richness of pot roast, with enough of lamb's distinct flavor to keep things lively on the palate.
