Jacksonville's Hole in the Wall Restaurants, Part IVDecember 18, 2013 13 comments Print Article
Four places to try and one to avoid.
I'm not sure if you can call Kabob-e a "hole in the wall"... I don't care.
It's so rare to go to a Jacksonville restaurant and eat chicken, let alone a kabob, that is not over cooked and flavored well. At Kabob-e the flavors of the marinade have made their way through the chicken pieces. Ground beef (koufta) kabobs are cooked and flavored well too and I think it's seasoned with a bit of clove. I can't remember if it was clove, nutmeg or... maybe it was cinnamon. Whatever it was it was good. The lamb kabob still needs some work. It's a little tough.
The gyro is huge... well, I ordered double meat.
Plus, the owners are pleasant and so hospitable. As we were waiting for our large to go order a table near us received their order. We couldn't stop eyeing their appetizer plate. The mother, who was sitting with her three kids, who turned out to be one of the owners, put a few of the freshly made sambosas on a plate and brought them over to us to try.
