Sansom Kabob House

I had a sudden urge to eat kabob today and thus my journey began to find a restaurant that would satisfy my cravings. I stumbled upon this hole in the wall restaurant on Yelp and decided to give it a shot.

The shop looks like crap from the outside but it is extremely clean and presentable on the inside. As soon as you step into the restaurant, you are enveloped in an aroma of spices and herbs, but it’s not overwhelming to the point where you can’t breathe.

The chicken kabob was insanely juicy and flavorful. All for $8.50, you get a salad, bread, chicken, and brown rice. The Afghani bread was amazing, and this is coming from someone who hates bread. My only disappointment was that they only gave you 4 relatively small pieces of chicken, but otherwise the portion sizes are very large.

Address: 1526 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA
Price: Pretty cheap. $8-10 for lunch, $12-15 for dinner.
Hours:┬áMon-Fri 11:30am – 9:30pm,┬áSat 1pm – 10pm

Baklava – This one was okay. Didn’t really have the “WOW” factor though.
