Famous Kabob Restaurant Review

: Tucked away in an otherwise ordinary strip mall, Famous Kabob is truly a hidden gem. The regal interior creates an enticing ambience, complete with dim lighting, dark wood and gold accents. The menu is similarly upscale, featuring traditional Persian delicacies. Diners are greeted with a simple offering of pita bread, feta, radishes, onion and mint. Additional appetizers are available, such as sautéed eggplant and stuffed grape leaves. Entrées include the namesake kabobs, with selections of fire-grilled lamb, beef and chicken served with saffron-scented basmati rice. Stews include beef, peas and potato as well as okra, beef and sour grapes. Finish off your meal with a traditional Persian pastry or Persian ice cream with saffron, pistachios and almonds.
