Ohio, actually, and the shashlik is pre-formed, sort of like a *home fry* from Burger King. We do bring her out for the dog and pony show on occasion, but like Lassie, the MJ you meet may not quite be the same one someone else meets Who cares? Soon, an Island Woman cart in every mall!!
(Chris, come on by, *MJ* is always happy to meet folks from Florida which is where she grew up...at least, one of them grew up there).
The real shasklik goes like this: (from Wikipedia) and the real deal is much closer to Pincho Joe's pincho's...(oh, that IS some news. Joe is taking his pinchos back over, hooray! Check them out next to the panaderia, on the weekends. Mouth joy on a skewer, and whole rotisseried pollos, yum)
Shashlik or shashlyk (Russian: Ð¨Ð°ÑˆÐ»Ñ‹Ðº, from Crimean Tatar ÅžÄ±ÅŸlÄ±q) is a form of skewered dish popular throughout the former Soviet Union and Mongolia. Shashlik is generally either beef, pork, or lamb, depending on local preferences or religious observances. These skewers of meat are either all meat, all fat, or alternating pieces of meat and fat. Meat for Shashlik (as opposed to other forms of Shish kebab) are usually marinated overnight in a high-acidity marinade like vinegar, dry wine or sour fruit/vegetable juice with the addition of herbs and spices. While it is not unusual to see shashlik listed on the menu of restaurants, it is more commonly sold by street vendors who roast the skewers over wood, charcoal, or coal. Shashlik is usually cooked on a grill called a mangal. It aso has become part of Israeli fastfood being brought over by Jews of Mongolia, and Russia. The name in Hebrew is Shishlyk. Not that much of a difference. It is also prepared the same way, and usually has very strong tasting and spicy miranades.
