I love lazy Brisbane days. The warm air crawls through the city, the afternoon skies turn pastel and the cicadas sing. Walking or standing are out of the question. Sitting, leaning or lying down are the only options. Comfy couches and grassy parks all over the city cry out for occupants. Cooking is definitely off the agenda as well. Eating is not. Which begs the question where, and what, to eat.
These kinds of days need easy food. Something quick, something you can eat anywhere. But you also want to be able to walk away with a light step and satisfied smile. Fast, easy, and nice. Full, but not bloated. Impossible you say? Wrong.
King Ahiram Lebanese Restaurant on Vulture Street in West End ticks all these boxes and more. Their kebabs are fresh and full, and they have a range of other Middle Eastern foods available as well, all prepared in the family run kitchen in the rear. And for four dollars a kebab you can't go wrong.
For a little over ten bucks you can start with a shish kebab (extra chilli). Follow that with a lovely moist spinach pastry, and finish with a thick slice of baklava dripping honey.
