The Kebab House 21930 Lakeshore Blvd.
The kids came over at two last Saturday afternoon. They were looking hungry from a workout and I am always hungry. I suggested going out to eat and they jumped at the offer. Where can you take two starving twenty-somethings and not pay an arm and a leg? The Kebab House in Downtown Euclid, on Lakeshore Blvd., that's where. I had been there before and wanted the kids to try it too.
We arrived five minutes later and parked out in front. It took us at least ten minutes to decide what we wanted to eat. The extensive menu includes both the expected foods and items to tempt the real foodie.
The food started coming over to our table in five minutes. The huge dinner salad was followed by my borscht (beet soup). Now I have read about borscht in Russian novels, but have never tried it. The Kebab House’s is a real treat. It is loaded with beets and cabbage, with a big dollop of sour cream in the center. It comes with a puff pastry filled with chicken-- very good.
My quesadillas were full of cheese and ham. They are served with a nice salsa on the side.
My son's lamb kebab was very well prepared. The lamb was tender and perfectly seasoned. They also offer chicken, beef, vegetable or pork kebabs. The pilaf was also good and the spicy carrot salad was new for us, but very good. The chicken schnitzel was nicely done and not greasy. It came with crisp, flavorful, mashed potato pancakes and the spicy carrot salad.
Finally, the macaroni was rich and cheesy. The large serving was only $1.99. In fact, the three of us left satisfied and only paid $30.39 for the whole meal! We couldn't have had as much food at a fast food restaurant. This was a real bargain for such wonderful eats!
