Best Middle Eastern Restaurant

Kabob Hut

13 Allegheny Ave., Towson, (410) 821-8005

Posted 9/18/2002

This popular little Persian restaurant wins awards for its kabobs. Deliciously marinated, flame-broiled meat-on-a-stick served with perfect rice and house-baked pita, its take on this Middle Eastern staple is stellar. But we love to sample the house favorites as well and delve into the subtle, complex blends of stewed meats, spices, veggies, beans, and fruits. The eggplant dish kashk-o bademjan; the garbanzo bean, noodle, parsley, and garlic soup called ash-e-reshteh; and the fessenjun--an outstanding walnut and pomegranate sauce--are all subtle and redolent. Don't fuss over the paper plates and uninspired décor--just try to beat the dinner lines.
