Chicken and Koubideh (Lamb and Ground Beef) Kabobs over Rice with Sumac and Herbs

What a hidden gem! This Middle Eastern eatery offering up freshly grilled kabobs and veggies with a slew of side dishes like lentils and eggplant is tucked away inside an unassuming grocery in Mountain View. We were a little stumped with the ordering process – you order from the cashier, not the food counter, unless you are ordering deli-style take-out. But we got through it and after we got our ticket we went outside towards the little window at the back of the shop, where they prepared and distributed the orders.
As we waited, we saw impressive platters of lavish bread piled high with kabobs, grilled tomatoes, onions, and peppers passing by. We wish we had ordered some of those tender charbroiled tomatoes, but we had more than enough food. Along with the kabobs on rice, we were given a big bag of fresh herbs and onions and a whole bag of lavish bread, plus we had our side orders of lentils and babaganoush. My favorites were the chicken kabobs, which were very tender, and the babaganoush. I love eggplant in general, so maybe I’m a little biased, but the creamy smooth texture was addictive.
