Harrisburg, Pa., is pretty much the end of the trend line. But we do get multiple versions of everything.
Currently, it’s shishkabob restaurants. Last year, none. This year, three on one street within six blocks of each other.
* Skewers is in the old Mezzaluna space in the 300 block of Second Street, near Ceoltas.
* Second Street Kabobs is at North street, where Mama Rosa Italian Cuisine was.
* La Kasbah has opened above Forster Street in midtown at 913 N. Second.
Skewers is the most inviting of the three, so I met a friend for lunch there.
The kabobs on the luncheon menu are served as wraps with soup for about $10. The lentil soup was deep and hearty, the tomato was creamy. (We swapped bowls.)
I ordered the shish kabob, which came as two wraps of minced lamb pungent with ginger and cilantro. I decided to have one and take one to go for my wife, but once I started I couldn’t stop eating.
Also, the service was great.
Ten bucks? I’ll go back.
