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’.
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.)
Gyros or Greek Kebab are made from chopped meat – usually pork or chicken – formed into a large meat loaf for slow roasting on the vertical rotisserie. Thin portions of the cooked meat are shaved off and served in pitta bread with onion and tzatziki (which would be a great scrabble word) but is actually a Greek yoghurt-garlic-cucumber sauce. The Greek Souvlaki is similar to Turkish shish kebab and consists of small skewers of pork, barbecued, then served in plain pitta, or with salad. Lamb or chicken variants are usually served with rice, potatoes and tzatziki.
