Hidden Gem: House of Kabob

You’ve passed it a million times, but if you haven’t stopped at House of Kabob on Edmonton Tr. N.E., we’re telling you, it’s time you did. This family-owned gem
is one of the oldest Persian restaurants in Calgary and not only offers a wide variety of kabob, but also hosts a small market for those looking for traditional ingredients for their home cooking.

Each meal comes with a generous serving of flatbread with butter, but do save room for your mains because the portions are generous. We began with a fresh Shirazi salad and corn and barley soup, both of which were delicious. Then, we opted for the House Special so we could sample a variety of kabob – all of which were incredible. The platter features one skewer of ground beef boneless chicken breast (jujeh) and steak flame (barg) seasoned and flame broiled served with one skewer of tomatoes and two plates of basmati rice. The chicken was our favourite as we’ve never had juicier chicken at home or out. We had a bit of rosewater ice cream for dessert, which was lovely. While known for the kabob, next time, we’re going to get more adventurous and dig into some of the traditional stews.
