After the excitement of the Dancing Dog building auction, Bennie, Che and I are up for lunch – a late lunch by our standards.
Footscray Best Kebab House is a long-time fave of Consider The Sauce – see older story here.
The truth is, though, that my couple of visits in the past year or so have had me wondering if this great place has lost its edge.
My solo meals seemed to lack some sparkle and the serves seemed a little on the mean side.
But on this visit, we work out a way to make FBKH really sing again.
For the three of us we order a large lamb kebab meal ($16) and three stuffed vine leaves ($1.50 each).
The stuffed vine leaves are fine but slightly redundant to our purposes.
The ordering of a main kebab meal for the three of us turns out to be a masterstroke.
The chilli dip is as sensational as ever and the yogurt dip (spinach in this case) is also beaut.
The salad is the usual cool and very unique-to-this-place jumble of vegetables.
The lamb is sensational, especially mixed with judiciously with both dips.
But here’s the thing – this single large kebab plate does all three of us just fine.
Much, much more affordable than ordering a small plate apiece at $14 – and it makes much better use of the big serves of the fabulous fresh bread that are routine here.
