Kabob Palace - what sort of style / recipes?

pdm Apr 4, 2008 08:58 AM

I'm getting ready to move out of Northern Virginia, and one of the things I will miss the most is Kabob Palace. I've looked around at middle eastern cookbooks but haven't been able to find anything even close to what they are making there. Does any one what particular style of middle eastern food they are doing there so I can try to narrow down my search, or what the chick pea dish is called? I asked one of the guys what was in the chickpeas sonce and he just said "a bunch of stuff!".I am an avid home chef, but middle eastern cooking isn't something I am very good at just figuring out.

Thanks for any suggestions!

      I'm sorry you are moving away! Kabob Palace is one of my favorites! Have you tried asking (nicely) at the sit-down restaurant next door? Its owned by the same people and they might be a little more helpful!

        The menu at Kabob Palace reads part Afghan, part Pakistani - judging ffrom other local ventures.

          Did you ever find anything? I was trying to find the exact same thing today -- I LOVE the chick pea stuff.......would love any info you have gleaned since April.

            Try this recipe from recipezaar- most areas of the middle east have a chickpea curry, this is kubili chana (chana being chickpea) or look up chana masala and have fun experimenting!

              peshawari chana recipe from a pakistani food blog: http://www.angelfire.com/country/fauz... (somehow, i can't navigate into other recipes from there, though.


              it looks more complex than the chole we get at ravi kabob (which is delicious). i haven't made it yet to kabob palace.
