Delicious Mediterranean CuisineKabobz Mediterranean Restaurant has two locations, one on Hwy 111 and the other on Country Club Drive. I visited the latter during lunchtime, treating myself to a meal.
I ordered the Kabob Skewer and Saffron Rice dish with chicken pictured (roughly $12), with five large, juicy (but not greasy) pieces of breast meat lightly seasoned with spices and grilled with chunks of yellow onion and bell peppers. I love grilled veggies and meats, especially if they are not too heavily seasoned or drowned in sauce, and free of grease. This meal (which also included a fire-roasted tomato and a side dish of tzatziki) ticked all the boxes for me.
Kabobz serves a variety of grilled kabobs, including chicken, beef, ground beef, lamb, shrimp, gyro meat, stuffed bell pepper, and shawarma (chicken or beef). They offer traditional appetizers like falafel, baba ghanoush, dolmades, hummus and pita, and various side dishes such as grilled veggies and lentil soup.
Mediterranean-style salads such as Greek, garbanzo, tabouli, fattoosh, and chicken salad are perfect for summer dining. Vegetarian specialties include fire-roasted eggplant with garlic, tahini and onions, stuffed bell peppers, a falafel plate, and the veggie delight: spicy grilled vegetables and potatoes, with rice or pita.
Prices are somewhat high; if you're looking save money, order a wrap or a few side dishes to make an economical, tasty meal. Kabobz also offers traditional desserts like baklava and Mediterranean ice cream.
