The Avengers 'Shawarma' Scene Is Boosting Local Restaurant Business. Do you like Shaworma?
Is shawarma benefitting from an "Avengers" bump?
In the recently released film, Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.) suddenly craves the flavorful, spit-roasted Middle Eastern street food after a major battle scene.
"Have you ever tried shawarma?" Iron Man asks Captain America.
"There's a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don't know what
it is, but I want to try it."
Now local shawarma restaurants seem to be having a "moment" -- at least according to an informal poll by TMZ. Ro-Ro's Chicken, a Hollywood shawarma joint, told TMZ that sales have shot up 80 percent since the movie opened.
