A Journey Through Flavor: The Story of Kabobs at Mangal Mediterranean

At Mangal Mediterranean, our passion for authentic Mediterranean cuisine shines through in every dish we prepare. Among our most cherished offerings are our kabobs, a staple of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cooking that has captivated taste buds for centuries. Let’s explore the fascinating history and cultural significance of kabobs, and see how Mangal Mediterranean brings this timeless dish to life.

Kabobs: A Culinary Tradition

The origin of kabobs can be traced back to ancient Persia, where the term "kebab" simply meant "to grill" or "to cook over an open flame." Early kabobs were likely a practical solution for nomadic tribes and soldiers, who used swords or skewers to cook meat over open fires. As this method of cooking spread across the Middle East and the Mediterranean, it evolved into a beloved culinary tradition, with each region adding its own unique flavors and techniques.

In Turkey, for example, the famous shish kebab consists of marinated cubes of meat grilled on skewers, often served with vegetables. In Iran, kabob koobideh is a popular variation made with ground meat, onions, and spices, grilled on flat skewers. Across the Levant, you'll find succulent lamb kabobs, richly seasoned and cooked to perfection.
