Man, this place brings back memories. Weâ€™ve been an avid customer of Mister Kabab since college. I remember after our gimik we would go there to eat and talk what happened earlier that night.
Mr. Kabab is a Persian restaurant that is known for after-gimik dining. Youâ€™ll be surprised even in wee hours thereâ€™s still a heavy queue for dining customers. It’s open 24/7 even holidays. The price of their meal ranges from 100 Pesos to 200 Pesos without drinks.
Before, Mr. Kabab was located at West Ave corner Quezon Ave just opposite of Delta, now itâ€™s along West Ave with a bigger seating capacity.
The dish we usually order there is Special/Beef Chelo Kabab. Weâ€™ve been ordering this dish for ages. It has two strips of Kabab [one strip only if you ordered Beef Chelo Kabab], tomato and rice with margarine [before it was butter, I guess theyâ€™re cost-cutting nowadays]. Mixed it with their famous garlic and hot sauce and it is to die for.
We also ordered Ox Brain. Iâ€™m not really a fan of this dish, since I find the texture weird but lots of people love this, especially my cousin Koo. She would order this every time we go there. Itâ€™s prepared with cucumber, tomato and kalamansi. Squeeze the kalamansi in it and youâ€™re ready to dig in.
They also have their famous Yoghurt Shake, which I forgot to order that time because I was craving for mango thatâ€™s why I bought a Mango Shake. The Yoghurt Shake has a mixture of sweet and salty flavor in it, but the sweetness overcomes the other. Itâ€™s a must try beverage when youâ€™re at Mr. Kabab.
Lastly for desert we had Baklava. “Pagkain ng di-tunay na lalake” – TNL. This pastry has two flavors: pistachio and wall nut [seriously pader na mane?!]. My cousin Diane who worked as an assistant-chef said that baklava should have a combination of pistachio and walnut. This was also good, but wasnâ€™t that great for us. I had a more delectable baklava before, but if you havenâ€™t tried it yet I recommend you do.
I have yet to try other cuisines in Mister Kabab, but I heard they’re also appetizing. Any suggestion on what dish I should try next?
