Nashville Food Friday: House of Kabob

A review of Persian/Iranian restaurant House of Kabob in Nashville Tennessee
If you are like me, sometimes you just need a hunk of meat on a stick. Thank goodness for Iranian restaurant House of Kabob for offering carnivorous girls like me many options of skewered or grilled protein. Located in a nondescript strip mall off of Nolensville Road, House of Kabob offers top-notch middle-eastern fare.
A review of Persian/Iranian restaurant House of Kabob in Nashville Tennessee
The decor isn't fancy, but it's clean and well-kept. The color palate tends to be black/dark brown/beige giving it the vibe of a fancy 24 hour diner. Our waiter was helpful, polite and prompt and even on a weekday night, this place was jumping.
Upon arrival you are greeted with pita and a plate of cilantro. The best parts about this little bonus are the chunks of feta sitting on top of the greens. It was salty and had a rather firm texture. I could eat ALL THE FETA.
Dolmeh (stuffed grape leaves) at Persian/Iranian restaurant House of Kabob in Nashville Tennessee

For an appetizer we chose the dolmeh (ground beef, rice and spices wrapped in grape leaves). The dolmeh was served warm and made into flat patties, different from the cylindrical Greek version that I am accustomed to. The Iranian version also had less vinegar, which was a bummer for me because I can almost drink vinegar straight out of the bottle (no joke- I LOVE THE STUFF). It was served with a light yogurt sauce with cucumbers and dill. The sauce was fantastic. It was so good I asked for some more to smother all over my main dish as well.
Kubideh and lamb shank platter at Persian/Iranian restaurant House of Kabob in Nashville Tennessee
For our entree (Steve and I ordered the same thing) we chose the kubideh shank. It had one skewer of kubideh (spiced and marinated ground beef) and one fabulous lamb shank. The lamb was super tender and fell off the bone with a touch of the fork. The sauce was flavorful and used sparingly. The kubideh had a really nice spice blend and despite being skewered, the meat was still tender in the center. I did however enjoy the kubideh much more with the yogurt sauce. The rice was light and fluffy and soaked up all the lovely sauce from the lamb shank. I would be hard pressed not to order the exact same thing next time I go back.

I really enjoyed House of Kabob, and if you are over by Nolensville Rd and need some meat on a stick, you know where to go.
