Mediterranean civilizations invented many lasting concepts, developing astronomy to explain the cosmos and democracy to equally divide lamb kebabs. Split a skewer with today’s Groupon to Kababji in Dartmouth. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Lebanese fare and drinks during dinner valid from 4 p.m. to close.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Lebanese fare and drinks during lunch, valid from 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Kababji whisks patrons away to exotic environs flavoured with traditional Lebanese dishes and fine Mediterranean wines. Diners fuel up to enjoy the restaurant’s featured performers or prepare to battle those who would dare steal bites by wolfing down a bountiful platter of oil-and-spice-marinated beef ($16.99), vegetarian ($13.99), or marinated chicken shawarma ($15.99) served with rice, hummus, and fattoush or tabouli salad. In addition to midday specials, nine puffy pita-pocketed wraps ($4.99–$8.99), spinach salad ($7.99), and several kid-approved options comprise the Levantine lunch menu. From its low, moody lighting to its graceful archways, Kababji invites diners’ ears to dine on well-cooked octaves in performances of periodic live music and belly dancing acts throughout the week.
Kababji Restaurant whisks taste buds to Lebanon with a menu of spit-roasted meats and tahini-flavoured snacks, such as hummus and falafel. A resident kababji, or shish-kebab cook, marinates top-grade beef and locally sourced lamb in oil and spices, accentuating their natural juices. Groups can also gather around shareable mezza platters that contain a chef's selection of appetizers, such as grape leaves, aged cheeses, and skewered shish taouk and kafta. Guests may dine on this cuisine in the restaurant or have it catered to a venue of their choice.
Uncorking fees vanish like microwaved ice sculptures on Monday and Tuesday evenings, when diners can bring their own wine or sample Ksara, a traditional Lebanese vintage. To cultivate a celebratory atmosphere, the restaurant hosts Saturday-night belly-dancing performances and special events such as weddings and birthday parties.
