Kebaba Restaurant Review 8.6

September 13, 2008

Kebaba, Chicken Schwarma

The smells greet you as you walk in the door of Kababa. The flavors are strong and distinct. I have never had true middle eastern food to compare this too but it is good with my American palate.

I have tried most things on the lunch menu plus a few from the dinner menu. The only item I will not have again is the spinach pie, it was different but one time was enough for me. Most lunch items are in pita, most things have a really good pickled onion. I don’t like raw onions but I crave these pickeled onions.

Add fries & a drink to any lunch meal for $1.75 more. The fries have a great herb seasoning & are well worth the upgrade. Also tough to pick a favorite but I like the Chicken Schwarma or Curried Tempeh. My husband usually goes for the Lamb Schwarma or Tuna Kebab. They also have a children’s menu for under $5.

The serving sizes are good, if you are not super hungry & have the fries, you can easily split this with someone.

A new Kebaba favorite of mine is the Lamb Burger.  I was hesitant to order a burger from a menu I know has good ethnic food but at the suggestion a friend, I did.  I was pleasantly surprised.  I will usually only try a bite of lamb and won’t order a dish of lamb.  This burger is a unique exception to all my preconceived ideas, you mush try it.

Lunch Menu:
Chicken Skewer (Kids) – one chicken kebab with fries & cucumber slices $4.50
Chicken Schwarma – Spiced roasted chicken rolled with garlic sauce, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and pickled onion, $6.25
Lamb Schwarma – Spiced roasted lamb rolled with tahini sauce, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and pickled onion, $7.25
Tuna Kebab – Marinated grilled yellowfin tuna, rolled with garlic sauce, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and pickled onion, $7.25
Curried Tempeh – Soy tempeh, celery, scallions, cashews and raisins, rolled iwht lettuce, carrots and a curried apricot dressing, $6.25
