The salmon kabob melts in your mouth. And there's no skewer in sight!

Semiramis has long been top in our book for Middle Eastern cuisine. So how does its neighbor Noon-O-Kabab compare? With a more meat-focused menu, it’s certainly a different kind of dining experience.

    Dang it! It’s 7:30 in the morning and I can already conceive of wrapping my mouth around a kabob and some baklava.
