Parkersburg Edition: Cham's Lebanese Cuisine

Chams Lebanese BistroI did a quick culinary tour of Parkersburg with BFF Veronica to check off a bunch of places on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine list, and our first stop was Cham's Lebanese Cuisine.

Chams Lebanese Bistro
Cham's Lebanese Cuisine is a family-owned restaurant that serves up classic Lebanese dishes: shawarma, falafel, kabob, hummus, etc. I went for the shawarma, while Veronica opted for the falafel wrap.

Chams Lebanese BistroAfter a short wait, our dishes came out - and with a smile. Everyone here was very kind and friendly. My dish was not bad, but it wasn't the best shawarma I've ever had, either. A bit more wrap than meat, and a good sauce would've helped bring it together. But good quality meat and a big portion.

Chams Lebanese BistroV wasn't super keen on her falafel (but I haven't had a falafel I've been super keen on, either). I had a bite, and it wasn't bad. It was tough to bypass the dessert ... but we did have another dinner to get to, so none for this visit.

Chams Lebanese BistroOverall thoughts: Good, especially for the Parkersburg area. Great? I've had some in recent memory that are hard to top.
