Bring your meat cravings to Selden, where a new storefront spot for kebabs has opened. Kabobshak debuted in April, with a menu of skewers, falafel, schwarma and sides. An unusual detail about the place is that it’s making pita, in house.
Harnessing inspiration from Jordanian, Lebanese and Palestinian cuisines, Kabobshak also makes its own shawarma, marinated for 24 to 48 hours, available as beef and lamb or a chicken sandwich stuffed with onions, pickles, tahini and parsley. Prices range from $4.99 to $7.99 for sandwiches, $6.99 to $13.99 for salads and platters.
Alia Yassen serves as the manager, joining her father, Jamal, as well as Tarik Yasin and Majed Abu Musfalam, who runs the kitchen. Yassen said her family has been in the U.S. for more than 30 years, working in various restaurants in Manhattan and Long Island. This is their first restaurant.
Kabobshak is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
