Silk Road BBQ, Belmont (& Surrondings)

My wife saw a flyer for this food cart posted in the library the other day, and we were intriguide enough to stop by for dinner. This is a mobile roadside stand that serves "Central Asian BBQ", but really seems to be larger in scope than that, with Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Korean street food dishes on the menu. The owner/operator said that they are still experimenting with the menu, which is mainly kabobs right now. He mentioned adding a smoker to the rig soon, for ribs. At any rate, we had two kabobs (chicken and kofte-style lamb) , with shepard's salad, tzatziki, and stewed tomatoes. The meat was well marinated and nicely grilled over hardwood coals. Pretty tasty, could have been a little more liberally seasoned. I thought the prices were slightly on the high side (especially since you have to to stand outside in the dead of winter to get it). Anyway, I applaud the effort and look forward to trying more dishes there.

See website link for where they're going to be. The owner mentioned that they're closing for next week in order to deploy "Version 2" of the cart.
