Kabobi - Persian and Mediterranean Grill
It’s common for Kabobi to be packed even on a random Tuesday, from the back of the long dining room to their sidewalk patio. It’s for good reason: the Persian food at this casual Albany Park spot is delicious. Group dining is the best strategy. Share a platter of kabobs (the juicy lamb and filet mignon are especially good) and make sure to get an order of herbaceous dill rice or the sweeter cranberry polo rice. Since this place has no less than three birthday parties happening simultaneously, book a reservation even if you’re just showing up with a friend, date, or friend-that-might-be-a-date.
