Discover local Kebabs gems
The kebab is a familiar Aussie favourite late-night snack and guilty pleasure. The beloved kebab is a generous heap of juicy meat piled with vegetables, cheese and sauces and wrapped in flatbread. Depending on where you are in the world, the word ‘kebab’ can have different interpretations. In some countries it means sliced meat served in pita (Doner Kebab), while in others it merely refers to meat grilled on a skewer (Shish Kebab). Kebabs originated in the Middle East, where there are many different varieties, depending on the country. The traditional Kebab meat is lamb, but beef, goat, chicken, pork and fish are also used, and occasionally grilled vegetables on skewers are also referred to as ‘kebabs’.
Doner Kebab, you know the one, if you were walking past the shop at midnight you’d drop in, but now, with the Menulog app, the shop comes to you. The meat – usually lamb, but can be chicken – is slowly roasted on the vertical rotating spit, a cooking process developed from the horizontal rotisseries of the 17th Century Ottoman Empire. The name means ‘turning roast’ and shavings of the succulent grilled meat are served in warm pitta bread, with a salad of chopped tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, onion, a sprinkling of hot peppers, salad dressing, mayo or a splash of home-made chilli sauce. (Keep a fire extinguisher to hand.)
Chicken Shish Kebab
One of the healthier options is the ubiquitous Chicken Shish Kebab. The term ‘shish’ is Turkish for ‘skewered meat’ and originated from medieval soldiers using their swords as skewers to cook meat over campfires. (No swords at Menulog – just a rapier-like delivery.) Nowadays, cubes of marinated chicken, lamb or other meats are grilled on the skewer – vegetables like peppers, tomatoes and onions are often added. These low-fat-high-taste protein pieces are then artfully crammed into warmed pitta, with a mixed salad of sliced tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, onion, a few hot peppers, salad dressing, mayo or a dash of home-made chilli sauce. (Easy there, tiger.)
