Kabob - Je Rotisserie & Grill
Inspired by owner Yasser Sadek’s childhood in Lebanon, Kabab-Je is Charlotte’s answer to authentic Mediterranean comfort food. The ingredient-forward menu appeals to vegetarians and carnivores alike, as popular options include the personalized veggie plate -- a “pick four” platter of hummus, falafel, tabbouleh and grape leaves, amongst others -- and the impeccably seasoned chicken shawarma sandwich. It’s an open kitchen, which means you can drool over the wood-fired pita oven while you’re waiting, but the snug layout makes space scarce during peak dinner hours. Fortunately there’s ample patio seating, so head outdoors to get your fix.
