Monday Night = Zov's Kebobs
For $13.95 you get three kebobs (angus beef, chicken and harissa tuna), rice and two sides...
We went last Monday to Zov's Bistro, Bakery & Café in Tustin to check it out. It's a generous fill--not tons, but certainly enough (we took a box of leftovers home, only to wolf them down the minute we got in the door).
The kebobs were nicely spiced, and three of our four sides hit the spot: grilled eggplant with feta and rosemary (juicy!), m'jaddarah--that's lentils, rice and caramelized onions (stodgy but good!) and cabbage salad (zingy!). The only slight letdown was the less-than-moist mash. But that was soon remedied by a bottle of highly drinkable, ice-cold Kalikia, a beer from Armenia.
Verdict? Not bad, if you're after something a little different. Shame that by the time we went to leave (just past 9 p.m., the official closing time), the cakes we'd been eyeing up earlier had already been removed from the counter. Our waistlines will thank us, though.
Kebob Night starts at 5 p.m. every Monday at all three Zov's locations.
