Today on the Bite Tonight: Z Shawarma King
Located on Southfield Rd in Allen Park, MI is Z Shawarma King. Offering Middle Eastern traditional dishes as well as burgers, fresh shakes, and a fruit juice bar, Z Shawarma King has become my new favorite place. Most of their sandwiches are available on french bread, also! See how they ranked.

Fattoush Salad: Romaine lettuce, tomato, cucumber, carrots, red cabbage, toasted pita, and a lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Fresh ingredients with a light and satisfying dressing. One of my favorite salads! The toasted pita really adds a nice crunch to the veggies.
Falafel: Ground garbanzo beans, garlic, parsley, onions, and spices. Crispy outside with a tender, moist inside. Full of flavor and delicious. I love the fresh and pickled veggies on the side.
Grape Leaves: Stuffed with ground meat, rice, lemon juice. Grape leaves are one of my favorite dishes because they taste good and they are good for you. The lemon juice really brighten up each stuffed grape leaf. The meat and rice mixture was well seasoned and moist.
Chicken Shawarma: White meat chicken breast with garlic sauce, pickles and onions wrapped in a pita. The chicken was moist and flavorful. The pita was fresh and soft, with a nice chew. The pickles are the perfect condiment without taking away from the grilled chicken.
Z Shawarma King is a great choice if you are looking for vegetarian options without sacrificing flavor. Fridays and Saturdays they stay open til 2 to cater to the late night munchies. I just love this because usually the only places that are open are fast food joints or bars. The next time you are craving Mediterranean food, but don’t want to make the drive to Dearborn, try Z Shawarma King. Service is good and the prices are very reasonable.
