The Kebab Shop

The Kebab Shop was a frequent lunch stop at my office for a while. The casual fast food eatery serves generous portions and is a nice change from the typical burgers and sandwiches fast food offerings. One of their most popular items, the doner kebabs, which resemble burritos, are huge and filling. They are also quick and portable, making them a great lunch choice.

When I found out that they opened a location in Mira Mesa awhile back, I really wanted to visit and take the FH. But it remained on my to-do list and I never got around to it. Recently, we were invited to go check out the Kebab Shop in Mira Mesa, so I finally got a chance to take FH there for dinner.

Since I’ve already had the doner kebabs, I decided to order the lamb plate. It comes with a hot dish (choice of golden fries, saffron rice, or falafels) and one salad (choice of bebe caprese, cucumber dill, Algerian eggplant, Hummus, Tabouli, Minted Orzo Zucchini, Andalucia carrots, macaroni salad, chopped Greek salad, green lentil and walnut.)

I made these on a whim this weekend and they were a huge hit with FH and my brother. I love how they look and they taste just as yummy.

Technically it’s not really a cupcake. It’s a savory muffin with mini pepperonis and mozzarella cheese inside. But FH took one look at them as said “Hey, it’s Pizza Cupcakes” and I didn’t have the heart to correct him. When I finished baking them, they tasted good but didn’t look so pretty. So then I got the idea to top them with more mozzarella cheese and pepperonis for a more finished appearance like adding streusel to a muffin or frosting to a cupcake.

The Second Annual Food Blogger Bakesale is coming up!

It’s the perfect opportunity to try some of the yummy baked goods you’ve been drooling over on your favorite food blogs and do some good too since all the proceeds go to Share Our Strength, an organization working to end childhood hunger across America.
