Kabobs, Kebabs, Kabops, Kabab whatevery you may call them are delicious. A little bit about Kabobs: Kebab (kebap, kabab, kebob, kabob, kibob, kebhav, or kephav; also Ćevapi, or Ćevapčići) is a wide variety of skewered meals originating in the Middle East and later on adopted in the Balkans, the Caucasus, other parts of Europe, as well as Central and South Asia, that are now found worldwide. In English, kebab with no qualification generally refers more specifically to shish kebab (Turkish: “şiş kebap”) cooked on a skewer. In the Middle East, however, kebab refers to meat that is cooked over or next to flames; large or small cuts of meat, or even ground meat; it may be served on plates, in sandwiches, or in bowls. The traditional meat for kebab is lamb, but depending on local tastes and religious prohibitions, it may now be beef, goat, chicken or fish. Like other ethnic foods brought by travellers, the kebab has become a part of everyday cuisine in many countries.
