Binging with Babish: Shawarma from The Avengers

Published on Apr 10, 2018
Joss Whedon didn't just bring dynamic characters, dazzling action, and rapid-fire quips to the MCU - he brought one character's singular hunger, a hunger that grew like a virus within the Avengers themselves. A hunger...for shawarma. Solemnly munch along in silence this week as we marvel at a carnivorous carousel and puff up some pita.

  • ya i live in egypt and this aint shawerma

  • So babish what does it feel like being the next target for the AAFG the autistic Arab food geniuses that some how think there the God of shawarma

  • Hey wanna hear a pun Have you tried eating a clock It's very *TIME* consuming Sorry for the bad pun

  • You should put onion, lettuce, cucumber, and sliced tomatoes, not diced

  • Traditional shawarma does not have tzatziki, you have made gyro

  • “Tibbouley, shwaarmah, t’heeney” *Lebanese people begin cringing*

  • you should send pics of the results to gordon ramsay for him to react to

  • Making air . . . . . . . . ADD A BIT OF KOSHER SALT.

  • Shawarma is haji tacos. Really good shit

  • Here in Ottawa, Canada, where there is literally a shwarma place on every corner, I have NEVER heard of tzatziki or tahini on a chicken shwarma. Normally, you have the pita with chicken that’s been shaved from a spit, tuom (Lebanese garlic paste), hummus, and then the usual fixings include things like tabouleh, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, pickled turnip (makes a huge difference) and some others extras.

  • As an Ottawan, the fact that the tabbouleh has no lemon juice, there was tzatziki (Greek) instead of toum (Lebanese), and there were no beet stained turnip pickles was disconcerting and disappointing. If this is the form taken by New York shawarma, I pity you.

  • Jesus, so much salt. That aint good for you.

  • Collab with Gordon Ramsey

  • Ya know the shawarma scene was recorded in Romania :')

  • Thanks for the video Dad

  • So it would seem that Babish was showing us the future in the past.

  • I am Jordanian that is not shwarma , shawarma is just cooked chicken and mayo

  • Yay avengers

  • You should visit israel they have the best shuarma

  • Binging with babish rocks

  • What about the garlic sos

  • not bad for an American

  • You meed to slice the thing open you fucking idiot

  • the best thing arabs ever created.

  • Why the fuck would you put yogurt and shawarma together ?

  • zaziki is actually spoken tza-tzi-ki

  • You know it's good when you can smell it through the screen

  • This video gave me an appendicitis last week Mr. Babish, I don't feel so good

  • Legend has it..... Binging With Babish uses 30 boxes of kosher salt every week

  • Nope, missing Palestinian pickles. If you've ever had them, you'd understand.

  • i need that cooker!

  • In the romania the sawarma si colled shaorma and ol the dushbags eat it in their bmw from selling their houses and listening some manele

  • In Germany we call that Döner Teller

  • Why do Americans pronounce Shawarma like 'Shwarma'?

  • U dont use a pita like that

  • This one is probably my favorite! Looks so good :)

  • ᗪᑌᗪE YOᑌ ᕼᗩᐯE TO ᑭᑌT ᗰOᖇE ᑭᗩᖇᔕᒪEY

  • Is it had when he was putting the seasoning I thought he was using the ashes of thanos's victims👀

  • Petition to make babish an avenger

  • Omg where do I get the thingy you used to grate the onion!!! That thing looks awesome. Lol. Also this looks soooooo good!!!

  • Americans please it is SHA---WARMA I swear there's an A there don't embarrass yourself in the Middle East 😂

  • About the tahini you made pure tahini To make tahini dipping sause You have to use some pure tahini Lemon juice Garlic Cumin Hot water to mix them all together .

  • ALL OF THE SHAWARMA IS PALASTINIAN 100% BELIEVE OR DIE!(for those who dont believe me! "not u my friend babish")

    • Free Palestine but Syrians do it good too

  • I just came to check chef John's comment

  • ياحبيبي حنى في اي مكان عندنا شاورما وانت تحسب ان وهو يحسب بيسير سوبر هير 😂

  • Shawarma gonna defeat thanos

  • *have you ever tried shwarma?*

  • Is that a personal meat spinner cooker machine. Clearly that’s not what it’s called but I want it

  • Use that Shawarma machine to make some great al pastor tacos!

  • “Because your garlic crusher is in the dishwasher grate in some garlic” 😂😂😂 this is why I love this show. It’s realistic and relatable unlike the shows on say Food network or tv in general. Love it

  • That's an German invention from a turkish guy it's called Döner in Germany

  • No sumac or lemon in the tabouleh?

  • Ive only been subbed for like a week and I already knew this guy is obsessed with dill

  • Why does he make such huge portions? Just curious....

  • That swarma machine would’ve been great for al pastor tacos!

  • The day I first saw this video, I had a shwarma for the first time.

  • 0:11 Fun fact Chris Evens (Captain America) wasn't eating and was covering his face with his hand because this scene was shot as an after thought way after original filming had wrapped. He had already grown a beard for "Snowpiercer" (strongly recommend if you haven't seen it) and refused to shave it to do this scene, so they covered it with a piece of rubber and had him hold it in place.

  • If you want to use the shawarma machine again I recommend doing a Mexican Cult Classic called Tacos Al Pastor or Tacos de Adobe

  • Why extra virgin olive oil? Why not the sexually active kind?

    • That's how one gets olive oil with a hint of cilantro and who wants that!?

  • I just made this and it was very strange. It made my kitchen smell like yogurt and cinnamon, like I was baking a sweet bread (I baked and then broiled it; too rainy to grill), I was almost too yucked out to try it. It didn't taste like much, so I just sprinkled some season salt on it and put it with a nice rice side. Not the salty, garlicy shawarma I'm used to. I think I'll just continue going to a Mediterranean restaurant for all my shawarma needs.

  • in many states you have to "cook" the chicken again after because its a law to avoid getting under cooked chicken

  • Yeah but that just Greek gyro...

  • Press and Seal is your friend.

  • Babish i love you but please stop saying "a little bit of salt" and then dousing the whole entire meal with salt. cringy

  • So a kebab? Lol

  • you forgot the beets and the Lebanese pickles, those and tomatoes are what I get when I go to my local Middle east bakery, ^^

  • Ohhh boys, this is going to trigger all my Middle Eastern and Persian (Gulf) friends!

  • It is a Pakistani street food and is really good

  • Andrew, can we get a different camera angle?

  • I'm assuming he meant plain Greek yogurt

  • Umm actually...Their spirits weren't crushed when they first faced him they still had hope😂😂😂Like there was really a chance

  • Its not pronounced shwarma it is shawrma where they’re from

  • That actually looks like shawarma

  • i am sick of turkish shawarma is like the mcDz of estern europ

  • Thanos Car heheheehe

  • Tahini tastes terrible...

  • Dude, this is not how you do shawarma. It should look lika a roll, nit like a fucking burito

  • I’m curious who puts cinnamon in their tabooleh? Cus I’ve made and eaten it my entire life I’ve NEVER heard of that

  • So it's like Souvlaki but with no potatoes and more veggies?!? Interesting to say the least.

  • Isnt shawarma from the Philippines idk im not really sure

  • is swarma a kebab,but americans call it swarma

  • I'm hungry

  • 0:40-0:46 you douche

  • That was almost as labor intensive as The Avengers battle against Loki.

  • Tahbolie has grape seed oil brother

  • Wait isnt it supposed to be called shoarma?

  • Omg this looks so good! I’ve always wanted to try that after watching Avengers lol

  • First I just wanted to say I absolutely love your channel. So I am a pastry student in culinary school and I just wanted to ask, have you ever tried instant yeast when making any type of bread? I find that it cuts time with prepping.

  • It's not shawarma but it's still tasty...

  • I hate how you say shawarma in english "Shwarmer"

  • wow that looks incredible

  • There was supposed to be like double that amount of parsley...

  • I'm sure this tastes fine. Things like this just make me sad that there are so many people who don't know Döner, and only have these lesser alternatives. I have one question though: Why on earth would you not put the stuff into the bread, but instead do this hard to handle taco? You can't bake the bread to the end, after all you have to wrap it around the stuff.

  • Babish you gotta make toum instead of tzatziki.

  • Tahini is made out of homs not sesame

  • I fuckin hate dill

  • Is it me or did he sweat in his food at 3:45-3:47?? 🤔🤔

  • Link to the spit?

  • It is kinda like a kebab, just better made

  • Put the pita in the oven to create the pocket. You have to flip it over once as well if you do you oven method
