Kobani: Kurdish kebab place on University in Berkeley

ernie in berkeley | May 30, 201501:51 PM

Berkeleyside Nosh alerted me to Kobani, the new Kurdish restaurant at MLK and University. I had a feeling it would be good when I saw the vertical spits roasting actual stacked meat (lamb and beef on one, chicken on the other), not a Kronos cone. The lamb and beef came wrapped in a delicately flaky lavosh, slightly crisp from the grill, with greens and tahini. I got a spanokopita to go, and it's one of the best around.

Other grilled proteins include lamb, beef and chicken shish-kebabs, minced lamb and minced beef and salmon. $7.95 for most wraps, around $12 for platters with salad and rice. Difficult parking.

The name is from the Kurdish city that was nearly destroyed in battles with ISIS last year.

It's good to have a great sort-of-replacement for the lamented Zaki's.
