The tradition of skewering food and cooking over an open flame harkens back to the Middle Ages, when knights would stick marshmallows on the ends of their swords and pay a dragon to breathe on them. Taste fantastical fire with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of kebabs, sides, and drinks at California Kebab.
California Kebab's kitchen serves up a bevy of sizzling kebabs and scrumptious sides with a Mediterranean flare. Keep ingredients under wraps with a customizable doner kebab ($6+), rolling up choices of chicken, lamb, or falafel with a plethora of toppings and sauces in a pita, tortilla flatbread, or magic carpet. Diners can also create a tailored plate ($7.50+) from any three skewers and two sides, chowing on stick-loads of tarragon chicken crowned by a zesty avocado dressing, and joined by savory sidekicks of fried zucchini sticks and pita wedges with hummus. Sip on a variety of craft beers, or pluck grilled shrimp in a garlic pepper sauce ($2) from skewers that make the perfect lances for midair jousting matches between fairies.
