At long last, tried Mister Kabab again! Years back my cousins and I would eat at one of their Q.C. branch either before or after a Saturday night out. Tried the Fisher Mall branch a year ago with my cousin and sister but since they renovated, I haven’t had the time to drop by to re-acquaint my palate and check if they’ve made changes in their menu.
Recently went back with two foodie friends whom have not tried the place before. Here’s what we tried and I must warn you, you might crave after reading this post.
‘Couscous’ (P120.00) – tomatoes, olives and fresh coriander
Appetizer Platter (P420.00) which consists of spinach with egg, eggplant with whey sauce, eggplant with egg, etc. (Choose any 4 appetizer) served with pita bread. Aside from being a good to-share platter, its also great for those who want a different source of protein. Want to start off your kids’ palate with vegetables when eating out, this is a good way to go.
‘Shorba’ (P120.00) – Chunky Tarragon infused vegetable soup served with an egg. Traditionally made with tomato broth and coconut milk, seasoned with bay leaves and garlic. Its the usual tummy-warmer of the Balkans. It may look simple but it is flavorful. Its a soup to crave for during rainy days especially if you want to deviate from the usual chicken or mushroom soup.
‘Shrimp Korma’ (P200.00) – a dish of mildly spiced meat or seafood marinated or braised in yogurt or curds, cream, nut or seed paste. I liked this dish the most from this food adventure because the aroma and kick is just right. No one will judge you if you ask for an extra order of biryani rice with grilled tomatoes. Aside from ‘shorba’ soup, its also a dish you’ll crave for when its raining.
‘Beef Chelo Kabab’ served with ‘Biryani Rice’ (P170.00) – The classic and popular favorite. The beef is really tender and flavorful and an upgrade to biryani rice plus extra grilled tomatoes is a must! Its no wonder foodies are raving about it.
‘Bhaglava’ or ‘Bhaklava’ – is a popular Middle Eastern/Mediterranean dessert made of layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with sugar syrup or honey. Mister Kabab’s version is really sweet and best paired with a cup of coffee or tea for a nice meal-ender.
Mister Kabab is known for their Yoghurt Shake and house coffee but opted for tea to calm my tummy.
Will definitely go back to try the other dishes, their yoghurt shake, coffee and the cakes. They have different branches around the metro so there’s probably one near you. So if you’re craving for good MiddleEastern/Mediterranean food, that’s very affordable and consistent in taste, and Halal-certified, try out Mister Kabab at your next food trip with your family and friends fellow foodies!
