And lucky for you (and more importantly, me), today's bargain at Big Deal Nashville is half-price coupons for Shish Kabob — $20 coupons for $10. I just bought two, and as far as I know, there's no limit. (Keep in mind, only one coupon per table, and they expire May 23.)
Here's an excerpt from my review:
The appetizers are worth the trip alone. All patrons are given a complimentary bowl of a slightly spicy chicken noodle soup, a nice welcoming gesture. Our party consisted of four seasoned House of Kabob veterans, and we were thrilled to find kashk-e-bademjan on the menu, and equally thrilled that the dish — sautéed, pureed eggplant with spices, topped with cream of whey — was every bit as delectable as its Thompson Lane counterpart [at House of Kabob, which Gazi formerly owned]. Opinions were split on the hummus, with some finding it too tart and lemony, and others liking for the same reason. The stuffed grape leaves (dolmeh), however, were unanimously voted the best in town: The ground-sirloin-and-rice filling was accented with a subtle blend of herbs that elicited moans of ecstasy. And while many Nashville iterations of falafel are too dry for our liking, Shish Kabobs' falafel was moist and flavorful, and vanished off the plate in a flurry of blurred hands.
And that's just the appetizers! Get on it fast — deadline is midnight tonight!
UPDATE: I forgot to note earlier, these coupons are good for dinner only.
