House of Kabob Restaurant Review:

House of Kabob is a quick and casual spot for good Persian food. This location has marble tabletops, dark wood chairs and Provençal art. The traditional menu includes starters such as dolmeh (ground beef-stuffed grape leaves), tadig (crispy sheets of cooked rice) and panir sabzi (a palate-opening plate of fresh herbs, walnuts and feta cheese). Your next move should be to order the fluffy basmati rice with generous kebabs of juicy, boneless chicken or ground beef and tender filet mignon marinated for hours in lemon juice and golden saffron. Some patrons come for slow-cooked stews like ghormeh sabzi (veal shank cooked with herbs), fesenjan (chicken with hearty crushed walnuts and pomegranate concentrate) and gheimeh bedemjan (sautéed eggplant with tomato sauce, yellow peas and meat). Finish your meal with a warm cup of cardamom-scented chai Persian tea and a rose water-soaked treat like faloodeh or zoolbia.
