Like becoming a formidable vampire hunter, eating a kebab requires manual dexterity, excellent depth perception, and a passion for impalement. Have a stake in your sustenance with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $17 worth of Indian and Pakistani cuisine at Kababs.
Channeling more than 25 years of culinary practice, chef Syed Jillani conducts a zesty procession of classic Eastern platters across Kabab’s comprehensive menu. Queue up at the daily lunch buffet or sup through the evening, revving appetites with deep-fried samosa shells carrying cargoes of beef or vegetables rife with spice stowaways ($2.99–$3.99). A band of varied kebabs lets patrons customize their meat-laden lances with adornments such as ground beef, lamb, chicken, shrimp, or fish ($9.99–$13.99). Waffling diners can create a combo kebabs platter ($14.99) and cart home leftovers that double as knitting needles used to make aromatic sweaters. Like herbivorous cowboys, veggie-inclined tongues lasso cubes of cheese alongside mustard greens tossed in fresh garlic and green chilis found on plates of saag paneer ($8.99), and desserters can indulge in some cold or warm noodle pudding ($2.99).
Every day, Kababs owner and chef Syed Jillani fills the dining room with the aroma of fresh herbs and spices. Ginger, garlic, turmeric, and curry swirl in the air like an all-scent production of Cirque du Soleil while Syed applies more than 25 years of experience to preparing classic Indian and Pakistani dishes such as tandoori chicken, samosas, and, of course, kababs. These specialties arrive individually with à la carte service or sit in buffet displays during lunch.
