Mister Kabob @ West Avenue

As I mentioned in the post about Garcia, after shopping, we went to eat dinner with Nikki. We wanted to get out of the mall so we went up West Avenue to Mister Kabab. This place is an institution in our neck of the woods. Mister Kabab has been around as long as I can remember. When I was in college, we would go there whenever we had some extra money. The prices were (and still are) very affordable and the food really good.

The place we went to last night is their new location. They used to be situated on the corner where West Ave and Quezon Ave intersected. Early this year, though, they moved up the street to a bigger and better place.
When we arrived last night at about 9pm, the place was still packed and we had to wait in line to get a table. When we left at 11pm, the line was even longer!

So what makes Mister Kabab so popular? See for yourself.

This is the special chelo kebab - one stick of ground beef, one stick of beef tenderloin. Slather the meat with garlic sauce and a bit of hot sauce and you're good to go.

I think this is my favorite - keema with eggplant. The consistency is a bit mushy but there is enough texture in there to suit my taste. It has a livery flavor that makes me want for more all the time. Needless to say, Jer would not touch this.

Nikki got the chicken chelo - it's the same as the beef chelo that I ate except that it's chicken!

Check the menu...now I am craving some more Mister Kabab.
