After months of bugging, I finally gave in to my friend’s request to join him for dinner at Kabobeesh, a Pakistani kabob restaurant in University City, Philadelphia. He lives nearby, and for good reason, he loves this place! After dinner, I totally understood why…the food was delicious!

several meats to choose from

assorted veggies and sides

We came straight after a long day inspecting bridges, so we were really hungry. Took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted cause there were a bunch of different kabobs to choose from.

chicken samosas w/ cilantro sauce

I’ve never had samosas, so I have nothing to compare these to. Though, I will say I found them to be quite tasty. They (as well as the main dishes) come with a side of this green cilantro/chili sauce.

lamb kabob w/ lentils & squash

My main dish was the lamb kabob (surprised?) with sides of lentils and squash. Friend went with chicken and a side of chickpeas. The guy gave me two sides since he saw my excitement while ordering. He knew I was a Kabobeesh newbie hehe.

The dishes are also served with freshly made naan! They were seriously piping hot when they came to the table.

Dinner was very delicious and filling. Loved the lamb, but I enjoyed the lentils just as much…if not more? I would totally come back even if it were just for the lentils over rice.

Looking forward to my next meal at Kabobeesh! Next time I hope to try the Tandoori chicken.

Anyone else gone before? What do you think?

a&m halal

I’m a huge falafel fan, and after hearing about A&M Halal from three sources (friend of mine who went to Drexel, Foobooz, and Food Network’s ‘Best Thing I Ever Ate’), I wanted to try this when I got a chance.

falafel sandwich

Luckily for me, I was in University City to check out a bridge recently and my partner was more than happy to try another falafel place for lunch. He ordered the falafel sandwich, which had falafel, lettuce, tomato, onions, and sriracha wrapped in a pita. It may have had some tahini or hummus as well.

falafel omelette sandwich

The falafel omelette sandwich is what I read about and what sparked my interest in the first place. I love eggs and falafel individually, but together? This could be interesting.

Nestled in a fresh hoagie roll was an omelette, falafel, tomatoes, peppers, onions, and sriracha. I took one bite and was impressed. Definitely tasty. I still prefer the traditional pita falafel sandwich, but this is definitely a delicious alternative and worth coming out to try if you haven’t had it!

Best part besides being good eats? The woman is super friendly and gives you samples of falafel while you wait for your food to be cooked AND both sandwiches were only $4 each!
