Hot Spot: Bucharest Grill

Detroit now has a new place to get the best chicken shawarma in town

The aroma of garlic drifts down East Jefferson Avenue now that arguably the best chicken shawarma in town is being served at the new location of this popular spot. The strip mall has ample parking, so no more jockeying for parking spots and waiting in line, which was the case when Bucharest shared space with the Park Bar. Yes, there is more on the menu (dine in or carryout), but the addictive marinated grilled chicken wrapped in pita bread and seasoned with garlic sauce is what brings in the crowds. 2684 E. Jefferson Ave., Detroit; 313-965-3111. L & D daily
