Charleston Edition: King Kabab

King Kebab is a Mediterranean restaurant that has a location in South Charleston. But, recently, they opened up a new spot in Kanawha City - which is closer to my home base now.

Though I didn't get a chance to go inside, the outside is bright with big signs that describe items they have. King Kabab is staying very safe during the pandemic. I was able to order my meal over the phone and simply drive up to the door, where they brought out my order and paid. OK, now let's get to the tasty stuff.

First up, chicken shawarma. If you've never had shawarma, you are missing out. It's like a little garlicky hug wrapped up in pita. It has chicken, lettuce, tomato, tahini, and garlic sauce in pita bread. But that garlic sauce is what makes it for me. It packs a punch that I just can't get enough of. And King Kabab does it right.

In my opinion, it's the best thing you'll find on pita bread.

And, then, I got a veggie sampler platter: falafel, grape leaves, hummus, tabbouleh, tahini and pita bread. I am pretty picky when it comes to falafel. Too often it's dry - but this. This was perfect. I kept dipping it in the hummus. And the grape leaves, which are a bit sour, have really grown on me. Everything felt fresh and satisfying.
