Jenks suggested that we share the Sultany ($24.95) for our entree, described on the menu as "a kabab feast for two" so we did. Although it didn't include lamb or shrimp, there were ample other kabab samples to try: light and dark chicken meat, beef, kubideh and chaplee. The two latter items are both based on ground beef, with the chaplee made with jalapeño peppers and potatoes. The kabab pieces were served over a bed of nicely seasoned basmati with pita bread and a choice of sides. MDP selected red beans with curry sauce and I, the spinach. The entree also came with two salads. I selected the Coban, described as a Turkish shepherd salad of chopped cucumbers, onions and green peppers in a very mild dressing. MDP ordered the Greek salad, which contained green olives, feta cheese and a mild Italian-like dressing. The salads were fresh, but as with the sides, they were surprisingly bland.
Because of the late hour, the baklava was sold out and homemade rice pudding was also unavailable.
There's much enthusiasm by all involved with Kabob City. Hopefully this will bode well for the restaurant in its the new location.
