After hiking for a few hours, we were ready to grab some food for a late lunch. The place we wanted to try was randomly closed so we ventured across the street to Mehman Restaurant. They’re nestled in between Krua Thai Restaurant and a Red Burrito branch.
We dropped in on a Sunday afternoon (around 2:30pm) and it was slightly busy for the random time. Service is a touch slow but friendly.
Menu consists of appetizers, kebobs, combo and stews. They also have some very reasonably priced, pickup only weekday specials ($11.99 to $12.99 available from 11:30am to 4:30pm).
They bring a basket of pita and raw onions to the table.
Choopan kebob (lamb shoulder chops), chicken wings and koobideh kebob (two skewers of ground beef). This option easily feeds three people.
It comes with three plates of steamed rice, grilled tomatoes and pepperoncini peppers. All the meats were excellently charred and tender.
The chicken wings (a mix of wings and drumsticks) were incredibly juicy.
The choopan kebob wasn’t too gamey but retained a good bite/pull to it.
The koobideh kebob was the richest of the meats. Wish they offered some vegetables/salads as an alternative to all that rice.
Mehman excels in the meat department but would appreciate if they offered some balance.
