Kebabs of Hayes Valley
(now closed) Medi bites and decorative hookahs in Hayes Valley

San Francisco

Even if you're great at your job, you've sometimes got to switch things up to stay fresh, e.g., Bryan Adams transitioning from writing Robin Hood-worthy love songs to serious fashion photography, or Kevin Costner transitioning from Robin Hood-worthy acting to... however he's paying the bills these days. Switching gears to make you fatter, the dudes behind Kebabs of Hayes Valley.

When three amigos running a successful parking operation decided it was time to make the all too common transition into the resto game, KoHV was born; its scope's defined simply as "Mediterranean" -- encompassing Turkish, Greek, and Middle-Eastern cuisine -- while its similarly non-specific decor features plush red booth seating, wall-hung tapestries, and decorative hookahs, which are there for...DECORATION. Kicking off the menu're apps like deep fried Sigara Boregi pastries stuffed with feta, Greek salads, hummus with garlic/tahini/olive oil, and grape leaves stuffed with rice, spices, and herbs -- (again: DECORATION). Then you've got familiar grab n' go options like slow-cooked lamb/beef gyros, chicken shish kebabs, and falafel wraps, plus fat combo plates ranging from potato/beef/eggplant moussaka to rice n' pita-aided swordfish skewers, which, thanks to three recent sales, have officially out-grossed the same-named film.

KoHV also features several delectable desserts, e.g., caramelized "Kazan Dibi" milk pudding, and shredded/fried phyllo filled with sweet cheese. Alcoholically, they've got four beers by the bottle and a house white -- all nice choices, unless yours is strictly a Waterworld.
