When Madeline and I first walked by Kebab Fusion, on our way to Taro for frozen yogurt, we decided it looked like a fun restaurant to try one night and made a point to remember to come back.
And we did several weeks later. After we got a few back-to-back sushi nights out of our
When we first walked in, I wasn’t sure if we were supposed to order at the counter (where there is a big menu displayed on the wall), or if we were to sit down first.
Turns out, if you’re staying in, you sit down.
The waiter brought over the menu right away and took our drink order. The restaurant is small, just a handful of tables, and it seems a little confused about whether it wants to be totally casual or a little more upscale. Glasses for our drinks, and tvs on the wall. Pretty formal waiter, but casual seating.
I asked about a few menu items and if they have a children’s menu (they do not). The friendly waiter suggested a kebab sandwich for Madeline, thinking it might be easier for her to eat, and I asked if it came with the meat on the stick like a regular kebab.
And it didn’t. And it turned out that the regular chicken (and other assorted) kebabs don’t come on a stick either.
Is it me or is that a little … odd?
I went with a falafel stickless kebab, because I have been sorely craving falafel since a favorite local place shut down without warning.
We went with the chicken kebab sandwich for Madeline, and she managed to drop the first two pieces of chicken.
So much for being easier. The waiter noticed what happened and brought over more chicken right away, without charging extra.
And I immediately loved him.
The falafel and the chicken were both flavorful, hot but not too hot, and a good-sized portion for the price. The falafel had a nice crispy outside coating and the pita was stuffed with cucumber, tomato, lettuce, and the tahini dressing. Now that I remember, it was supposed to come with a side, but mine was forgotten. The staff was friendly and did well on keeping an eye on us and what our needs were. The restaurant, including the restroom, is clean and well maintained, and there is on-street parking right out front. Although this being Morristown, parking on the busy South Street sometimes requires a trip or three around the block. It is family-owned and operated and has been there for about a year and a half.
The menu has a pretty good variety of items (including burgers, wraps, and salads), and many offerings that will keep vegetarians happy. The prices are reasonable, and we had enough food to bring leftovers home, with a little extra for the dog as well. We wouldn’t hesitate to come back, but with the name Kebab Fusion and the picture of the STICKS in the front window, I wonder where they are.
If you happen to be local, they offer free delivery and online ordering as well.
