Best Kebabs in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Indeed, food is the reason why we should travel; conversely food itself travels, enhancing flavours from country to country. The kebab is one of the most celebrated dishes across the globe; either slid between pita bread or paired with rice, it’s a dish that dumps away a dreary day with its robust spices and the smoky aroma of grilled meat. History traces that the kebab was introduced in Turkey by soldiers who grilled their meats on swords on open-field fires. A gusto act which sparked an amazing gastronomical journey, Penang's array of restaurants are beckoning with mouth-watering meat feasts that will have you literally eating till you drop.

Famed and fabled for serving the best tandoori and briyani in town, you’ll be tempted with varieties of kebabs that would fit delightfully with their fluffy naans. Their Chicken Cheese Kebab is a perfect blend of spices and cheese. Dabble with their homemade chilli and mint sauce – it’s amazingly addictive!

    Tucked in the buzzing Little India, a walk in this classy restaurant will transport you to South India straightaway. It’s a realm of rejuvenating interiors, crafted with artistic photos, elegant ornaments and exclusive copper utensils. Among the crowd-pullers is their tender and succulent Mutton Sheek Kabab. The rolled minced mutton comes with julienned onions, carrots and mint sauce. The depth of spices certainly leaves an aftertaste that urges you to come over and over again. 

    Tips

    During lunch hours, it’s a battle for parking; conversely dinner time is much calmer.
