More on Kabab Stop.

Before the kebab talk, can we hear a halal for some tasty samosas? Kabab Stop makes a seriously delicious offering: ground lamb and peas in a flaky, flaky dough served with a creamy, herby, spicy sauce (two $3.50). They're the perfect appetizer for Kabab Stop's yummy chicken malai kebab ($8.95) and barra kebab ($8.95) entrées. Both tandoor kebabs (off the stick) are served with lovely basmati rice dotted with bright spots of saffron; warm chickpeas in a curry sauce; chilled cucumber salad with red onion, green pepper, and more chickpeas in a peppery oil dressing; and slightly greasy, salty naan. The chicken, marinated in cream sauce with herbs, could not have been more tender, and the lamb, marinated in yogurt and garlic, was perfectly cooked and flavorful. We also ordered an onion kulcha ($2.50), naan filled with cooked, but bold green onion. Call in an order to be delivered within a three-mile radius-the dining room lacks character-or just park carefully, decide on some carry-out, and go across the street to the Curb Shoppe for a beer while you wait.
