Best Middle Eastern Restaurant (2010)

House of Kabob II

The Lake Forest location House of Kabob made this list last year. This year, it expanded to Irvine and only got better. The rice, a free-flowing mountain of loose grains with a faint saltiness and a yogurt-y tang, is the anchor to every meal—meals that start with juicy, char-flecked kebabs of lamb, chicken, beef and koobideh, a ground meat tube as soft as crumbly meatloaf. In their addas polo, what amounts to half a chicken is buried under a Sahara desert of rice. This time, the grains are cooked with even more flavoring agents: dates, raisins, saffron and the chicken itself.
