Mr. Kebab, Union City report - it's Good Turkish food

hhc May 2, 2007 07:02 PM

It's a Good Restaurant people. We should support them. They are next to Starbuck's in Union City between Rite Aid & Payless Shoes.

It's a small place that you can eat in or take-out.

I got the Lamb & Beef Doner Sandwich $5.75 (Shawarma) - which is tender, thinly sliced marinated lamb & beef roasted in upright grill served in a lavash bread. Comes w/ a marinated salad w/ onions. I found the meat to be Juicy which is hard to do. Recommended.

I also got a Combo Appetizer Plate $7.00-it comes w/ hummus, babaghanous, dolma & falafel. Since I don't eat fried things I asked if they can substitute it and they can. I got instead Piyaz (Garbanzo bean salad). Everything was pretty good. I thought the babaghanous was really good, dolmas were only 4 and ok. Hummus kinda salty for me.
Comes with a good size loaf bread sliced. Thought the bread was boring.

They have separate men/women bathroom in the back. I didn't like the women's bathroom at all. Hard to get the tp out, low flush toilet problem, and paper towel machine was jammed.

They take credit cards. My total was $14.41 without tip.

red lentil soup $3

lamb & beef doner salad $7.5

    Update 5/30/07: went back to try the kofte sandwich. 4 pieces of lamb & beef small patties in a huge sandwich w/ salad on the side. Ask for yogurt sauce & hot sauce. I thought it was just ok, think the Lamb & Beef Donner Sandwich (Sharwarma) was better. Got hubby the kofte platter - he enjoyed it.

    pics of the kofte sandwich & platter attached.
