I was given the opportunity to nitpick Kababji first hand- no holds-barred. Every question was asked and answered by the surprisingly generous people of Kout Food Group, stomach so listen up and pay attention because this is going to get pretty interesting.


If you don’t already know this, Kababji’s a Lebanese franchise. After what I’ve seen, it ranks right up there with Mais Al Ghanim, Burj Al Hamam, Villa Fayrouz and whatever Lebanese restaurant you can think of. It may look like a fast food chain from the outside, but it’s anything but from the inside. Don’t even dare compare it with Tikka or Turkish Grill. Those are fast food. Are we clear on this? No? I guess this is the part where I have to prove you wrong.


Chicken- from Shish Tawook to Chicken Kabab, it’s all 100% skinless and boneless chicken breast meat. I saw it through my own eyes, and I even tasted it.

Meat Kabab- All Kababs contain only 10% fat. We’re talking about a staggering 90% of lean meat in Kabab. Kabab’s not supposed to be this lean, but Kababji makes sure it is this lean while tasting considerably scrumptious.

Red Meat- Specifically Tikka Meat. Think of the leanest cut of red meat you could ever find. Now think of the leanest cut of meat you can ever find after you’ve found the former. 100% pure Bobby Veal meat extracted from the leanest part of a Calf (baby Cow). Yes people- it’s that lean. You’ll need to taste it to believe it.

Ground Beef- The meat used in Arayis and Lahmeh Bil Ajeen? It’s the same beef used to make Kabab. So? It’s 90% lean.

Garlic Sauce- I was told not to expose SPECIFICALLY what ingredients used in their Garlic Sauce, and I promise you [Kout Food Group] I won’t, but I will assure readers that it is protein packed, antioxidant packed and contains very healthy fats. Just limit serving size to 1 per meal.

Rice- Saffron rice infused with a teeny tiny bit of oil. Oh, and it’s enhanced with Saffron, but you already know that.

Hummus- Made in-house. Always ask for your fiber and protein packed hummus without oil.

Calories & Macros

The people at Kababji were kind enough to provide me with enough information for me to come up with these numbers. These numbers are calculated by ME, since Kababji doesn’t calculate calories and macronutrient ratios. Took me a lot of time to calculate, so use this information wisely.

All calories and macronutrient ratios are as per individual order:

  • Shish Tawook: 264 calories, 3 grams of fat, 55 grams of protein.

    not bad. nice to see that you’re doing your own calculations and research now after that Lofat fiasco with their fake numbers.

    re. kababji I’m quite impressed with the macros as you’ve put them. do you think the numbers would be consistent across locations, etc?

    could make for a great muscle-building menu.
