Kebab Cafe--problem with the fish???

AndyK | Feb 23, 2003 09:52 AM

Went to Kebab Cafe yesterday for a late leisurely lunch and like always, had a wonderful relaxing meal. Well, at least the first two thirds were wonderful. We had mixed appetizers which were delicious, especially the smoky baba and some delicious fresh artichoke hearts sauteed with lemon and zataar. The we had some merguez and beef shank. Both superb.

And then came the fish. What a let down. The two whole fish (a porgy and a brook trout) we had were both extremely "fishy" and overcooked. Clearly they were not the best fresh fish, if fresh at all. Anyone else have this problem? I love this place for the atmosphere and most of the food, but should I avoid the fish??
