Middle Eastern food is my second favourite in the world after Spanish —of course!—, I usually travel 4 or 5 times every year to the Middle East and I can tell you that food can’t get any better than at Mr. Kabab.
Don’t get fooled by their name, many people think this is another horrible döner kebab fast food place, but it’s not! The owner and cook has been serving the best kabab and other Persian specialities for more than 20 years in Madrid.
Mr. Kabab’s menu is short but it has all the Iranian favourites. You can’t miss their mirza ghasemi (grilled eggplants purée) or their kashko bademjam (fried eggplants purée); any of their kababs, always tender, juicy and flavourful; or their badenjan khoresh (beef stew with fried eggplants) and bagali polo ba gusht (lamb shank with rice with faba beans and dill). If you have a sweet tooth you can’t leave without trying their home made zulbia while you have a tea.
