Photo via screenrant.comToward the exciting conclusion of “The Avengers,” which I saw in 3-D earlier this week, Robert Downey Jr. as “Iron Man” goes on a random, Robert Downey Jr.-esque rant about shawarma.
In the middle of a major battle, Iron Man pauses to reflect on the Middle Eastern meal that’s well-known in Wichita.
“Have you ever tried shawarma?” he asks Captain America. “There’s a shawarma joint about two blocks from here. I don’t know what it is, but I want to try it.”
During a scene in the closing credits, the super heroes do indeed gather for a shawarma-fest, a scene that has apparently resulted in a run on shwarma in Hollywood.

Foodie moments are included in all sorts of movies currently in theaters.
“The Five-Year Engagment,” starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, incorporates a food truck that serves some pretty tasty looking tacos into its plot. And “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” which opens in theatres today, has a full on food truck war in it.
Watch for these delicious moments if you go to the movies this weekend.
