Like a political sign, food mounted on a stick often captures the attention of passersby when displayed in one’s front yard. Show flavor solidarity with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of kebabs at Magic Skewers Restaurant in Manhattan Beach.
Specializing in firing up hefty handfuls of charbroiled meats and vegetables, the cooks at Magic Skewers Restaurant sate appetites with a menu of kebabs seared over an open flame. Like the will of a parent in a toy store, the skewers bend, weighed down by ingredients such as 1 pound of marinated chicken ($15.95), more than a half pound of steak ($17.95), and 10–12 pieces of shrimp ($17.95). Rice, salad, and slabs of pita bread augment the generously portioned kebabs, which diners can accent with sautéed mushrooms and grilled onion for an additional fee ($1.99).
