Famous Kabob Restaurant Review

: Don't be fooled by the questionable location --- Famous Kabob truly is a hidden gem. The interior portrays a regal ambience, complete with dim lighting, dark wood and gold accents. The menu is similarly upscale, featuring traditional Persian delicacies, with an emphasis on kabobs and stews. Diners are greeted with a simple offering of pita bread, feta, radishes, onion and mint, but other appetizers are also available, including crispy rice and Persian soup. Entrées include the namesake kabobs, with selections of fire-grilled lamb, beef and chicken, served with saffron-scented basmati rice. Wash it all down with doog, a classic beverage made with yogurt, water, salt and mint.
