Best Kebabs in KL

Written by Updated ago

The very mention of kebab usually conjures images of meat being slowly roasted over a rotating spit, filling the air with the rich, smoky aroma of charred beef or lamb. A dish considered to be of Turkish origin, it is usually served in pita bread with tomato, onion, sumac, pickled cucumber and drizzled in sauces. This type of kebab is the Doner kebab, which is commonly sold as a fast-food item. There’s more to kebabs than just the Doner, with Shish kebab (skewered grilled meat) and Adana kebabi (minced-meat kebab), just to name a few. Spanning from the Levant to the Middle East and South Asia, each region has its unique variant of the kebab set with distinct flavours from the use of different ingredients and cooking methods.

A trip to this restaurant will evoke thoughts of magic lamps and flying carpets.
