Kabobi-Persian and Mediterranean Grill
4748 N Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL 60625
The Albany Park area of Chicago is known for their diverse population of people from the Middle East
And with the numbers growing through the years,
the number of restaurants in the area also increased
You can even spot Middle Eastern restaurants that are right next to each other on Kedzie street!
And with one of the best Persian restaurants around,
Kabob Grill is a find that you can’t beat
High quality Middle Eastern food served in a casual environment to have a seat
With no wait service, the first thing you do when you walk in is order at the counter and then find a table to sit
Because of their popularity and crowd, you may have to wait a bit
The ambiance reminded me of cafes and restaurants in the Middle East,
and because of their massive portions, for a very decent price, it will most definitely feel like a Arab feast!
The hummus is smooth, silky, and creamier than most,
claimed to be one of the best hummus by their regulars,
that gives Kabobi a reason to boast!
Brought out with warm and fluffy hot pita,
that is baked fresh daily at the bakery next door,
Al-Khyam Bakery is the name of the store
The Persian Salad is fresh and crunchy,
a good way to prepare for the food that will be coming your way
Because when the main entrée is brought out in front of you,
you already know you’ll have food left over for the next day!
Each dish comes in a tin tray lined with Persian Lavish bread,
with your choice of rice and kabob on top
Accompanied by a sliced red onion,
grilled plum tomato,
and a pat of butter to spread on the kabob
The meat is juicy and very flavorful,
and the owner confirms that it is all Zabiha Halal,
for those who are careful!
Each meal is easily two meals in one
With each bite of the savory dish,
it felt nice knowing I wasn’t even close to done!
The owner was a gentleman,
and walked over to every table to ask if everyone enjoyed their food
With bags of leftovers in hand, and a satiated stomach,
The smile on my face after having such divine Persian food spoke my gratitude!
