Best of Canberra – Kebabs

By Canfan 23 September 2014 22


For this week’s Best of Canberra, we are going back to fast food… Kebabs. My first experience of a kebab was back in the days that there was a little place in the Woden food court (I’m talking maybe 20 years ago). Since then, they’ve been a favourite, although as my taste buds (and digestive system) age, I am faster to choose a grilled meat option over a doner.

With all the onion and garlic, it’s never a great date food, but definitely comes up trumps after a night out or for a quick lunch bite when on the run.

In London a kebab comes in an open pocket with a fork – yes, it’s true. I would question the point of a kebab if you lose the convenience of a single-handed feast!

Are there any little hidden gems around town producing kebabs worthy of high praise?

What’s Your opinion?

I agree, Kismet in Manuka have the meatiest kebabs – they are very generous in not just their meat servings but all the salads and add-ons as well. What surprised me was that they also do catering for functions AND deliver! That goes over and above just a takeaway joint. But honestly, the best surprise is their really really good coffee 😉

There seems to be a bit of confusion here. I had always thought that a kebab was a shortened term for what the Americans call shish kebab or shish kabob, or souvlaki in Greek. I’d always known the item in the pic as a wrap, or fajita in Mexican. From what I’ve been able to glean, the term kebab as used in the modern context came about because the meat is sliced from a large portion which resembles the meat pieces on a souvlaki. I’m preparing to be shot down in flames here …

Shawarma is the item in the pic.
