1. Fiery chilli garlic sauce tops off the Donner Iskender
Starting off with of the most famous foods straight from the heart of Turkey, the Donner Iskender, attributing its origins in its name, is known to be a trademark in the kebab scene. Prepared to perfection at Fez Foods, this traditionally-made dish is usually served with slices of lamb and topped with a chilli garlic sauce that is to die for! The Donner Iskender also comes with chicken or beef options served tightly wrapped in their tasty flatbread. If you haven't already tried it for yourself, garlic yoghurt is the all-time classic pairing with any Turkish Donner, and when it comes to Fez Foods, we're willing to add their famous chilli sauce to the essential mix. Not feeling a wrap? Try out the Donner Kebab plate, a whole new approach to the typical Kebab offered with a side of rice, your choice of four (yes, four!) Turkish mezze, and toasted bread.
2. Donner topped with… an egg? The Chelow Kabab
Delving into Iranian cuisine, the Chelow Kebab just so happens to be their national dish, served in the form of grilled dripping skewers of perfectly tender chicken or meat. And it doesn't stop there! For all you Kebab buffs, go the traditional route and add an egg yolk as your crown jewel of a topping. Traditionally, an egg yolk would be placed on top of the steaming rice, creating an extra rich, creamy base. If you're keen for authenticity, go ahead and request your egg yolk topping and Reza's chefs will sort you out! Every meal is served piping hot with rice and a wide variety of Iranian pairings. Reza serves the very popular Chelow Kebab showcasing their lip-smacking lamb Chelow, and of course, all the necessary fixings!
3. Mediterranean fixings piled high on your Shish Kebab
Another stop on the cultural Kebab journey takes us to The Bake One, a Lebanese restaurant known for their wide range of new and interesting Kebab toppings. The Shish Kebab might possibly by the most widely spread type of Kebab globally, however you have to explore deeper into the many additions that make the Shish Kebab so great. Pieces of chicken and meat marinated heavily in flavoursome herbs and pastes mixed with olive oil, garlic, and pepper are left to work their magic overnight.
The Shish Kebab is usually cut into cubes and served on skewers, but what really catches people are the topics. Among the most notable is Tomeyah, a traditional creamy garlic sauce, and the Hummus Beiruti, a blend of sesame paste, green chilli, parsley lemon, and chickpea puree. Another essential topping that really changes the game sits in their salad menu. The cucumber salad has a saucy consistency that adds the zesty crunch you need for the perfect Shish Kebab experience!
