A Sandwich a Day: Shish Kabob at Marrakesh

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

It's similar in concept to the veggie pita, but Marrakesh's Shish Kabob Pita ($7.75) is a notable meaty sandwich in its own right. The hunks of lamb are surprisingly, impressively gamey, charred well but tender medium rare inside.

The pita comes with two additions; hummus and babaganoush are our picks, though going with falafel could make for a shish kawafel hybrid worth exploring. No matter how you deck it out, don't miss the order of hot sauce on this one. You'll want it there.
