We ate again at Kebab Cafe last night. The duck was superb. He also made, on a bizarre special request, a schnitzel. Who would have thought he could make delicious German food?
And I forget what they’re called, but he makes these delicious fried pieces, some with bastourma others with cheese on the inside. Oh they’re good.
And a new wonderful item was a tuna salad. But not your mother’s kind. Nice chunks of (raw?) tuna in a salad with a tremendous amount of raw garlic. Also with some greens, rice wine vinagar, basil, and sumac. Talk about fusion done right!
Also of note: chef/owner Ali is looking for a new cook. Luis, after 5 years, is moving on in a week or so. No doubt the pay is bad and the hours long, but if somebody is looking to work there and learn under his tutalage, stop by and inquire.
