More Texican fusion weirdness courtesy of the Sheik

posted on November 11, 2009 at 7:31 pm

I guess fusion burritos and tacos are the next food trend to hit our city. First, Hankook Taqueria opened. Now, Sheik Burritos & Kabob (1877 Piedmont Avenue, 30324. 404-815-0227. http://sheikburritos.com) has taken over the old Da’ Chicago Dogs space on Piedmont Avenue near Cheshire Bridge Road.


The place has only been open a few days and bills itself as Persian and Southwestern fusion–think shish kabob burritos. The food is just plain weird, but the tongue in cheek nature of the menu is oddly endearing. Check it out:
Too early to say much, but my food was weird. Not bad. Just weird. Shirazi salad+beef kabob+Caesar salad in a flour tortilla can do that to a girl.

Current status: Undecided. Confused. Intrigued.

    Well, they have a burrito named "The Riggins," so they can't be all bad.

    Just ate there…got the Dirka-Dirka (beef, spinach, yogurt, lentils, eggbplant) in a wheat pita (Persian Style). AMAZING. Definitely going back.

    I love all of these fusion places. Thanks for blogging about them because I'd never know about them otherwise.

    Interesting. I met the owner of this place the other night, though I haven't eaten there yet. Young guy and very passionate about what he is doing. He is Persian and his background is in Southwestern restaurants.

    He said part of his plan is also to open a few sidewalk kabob stands in the near future.

    What's with no prices on the menu? I almost felt embarrassed asking what cost what. Overpriced "dirka dirka" had barely any lamb in it. Too many conflicting flavors to be mixed into a burrito in my humble opinion. I think I'd order this again on a plate to see if I'd like it better. Maybe then I might be able to see the meat for my $9 bucks too.
