On a very rainy day here in Folsom, a friend and I took a dive into a Persian Mediterranean experience. Located conveniently near everything, Kabob Express on East Bidwell offers Persian food at its best and in a vibrant dining set-up.
We entered the restaurant to find a few families gathering for dinner, as well as a group of guys watching a playoff game on the restaurant’s big screen. The wide-variety-menu included an array of fine Persian kabobs with a choice of chicken, beef, lamb, salmon or veggie. Along with these famous kabobs they also offer a selection of kabob burgers and specialty wraps from which to choose.
Since childhood, kabobs have always been one of my favorite things to eat, mostly due to the variety of foods that can be arranged to create these tasty treats. On this particular evening, I decided to order the Boneless Beef Filet Mignon Kabob; a skewered, tastefully marinated filet mignon. The delicious kabob also included a serving of rice with saffron topping, Afghani Nann, also known as flat bread, and a freshly tossed salad of crisp lettuce, tomatoes, tarragon, red onion and cucumber. This amazing dinner plate provided a mouthful of flavor and left my taste buds craving more!
No reservations are needed to enjoy an afternoon or evening kabob meal with family or friends at one of the area’s most delightful eateries. Kabob Express is just what you would think – fast and delicious – and it’s perfect for big appetites…the portions are ample!
