Cheap Eats: Mr.Kabab

Christmaelle Vernet

Mr Kabab Mediterranean Grill & Food brings Middle Eastern flair to central Hyannis. Sharing the location with United Gas, this streetside eatery invites one in for a unique dining experience. The menu consists of a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads, and with their open cooking setting, food gets prepared fresh, right before the customer’s eyes! The restaurant is based in a convenience store with a few tables for ear in dining.

I ordered a Chicken Kabab wrap, which was a delicious blend of chicken, tomatoes, pickles and garlic paste. I accompanied that with a baklava dessert (a pastry made of layers of thin dough filled with chopped nuts and sweetened and held together with syrup or honey). The entire meal cost a little over $11. The chicken was very well cooked and the pita bread wrap was perfect for holding everything together. Fortunately, the baklava was sold separately from the wrap, so I was first given the sweet dessert in a plastic container and I paid for it and the rest of the meal at a different register. After a short 10-minute wait, the food was ready. I was delighted with their great customer service and how they did not hesitate to wish me a good day.

They have an angus burger with a side of fries as an American option. The Falafel,which is essentially a deep fried ball of dough made from chickpeas, fava beans or both, is prepared fresh and I noticed there are many vegan options as well. The number of sides they have are numerous, with selections like hummus, rice, coleslaw, fries and even grape leaves, a staple in most Mediterranean cultures. Living on Cape Cod our options are often limited when it comes to international cuisine. Mr. Kabab offers a new variety of selections to try.

In precedence to their name, Mr Kebab is  known for guessed it kebabs. They have a chicken, beef and kafta (vegetarian) option. The kebab prices range from about eight dollars to around nine dollars.

Although the space to eat is very small, the area was almost spotless. The hours at Mr. Kabab are 11 a.m. to 8p.m.  on Mondays through Saturdays and they are closed on Sundays. If one is seeking a place to order a quick bite or their first taste of Lebanese food, Mr. Kabab is definitely the place to go. I look forward to stopping by again sometime in the future.
