Kebab, Burgers & Fries Triple Threat


Disclaimer: This meal was comped.

The Pitch

Just when you thought every possible food combination has been tried, along comes something new.

Freshly opened just last month on Sainte-Catherine Street in the Concordia University area is a Persian concept combining kebab, burgers, fries and more.  Backed by two wanderers who lived in Africa and South America but now consider Montreal home, KBF reached out to me this week to check out their offer.

The Mood

Taking over from a bubble tea store followed by a sushi shop, KBF's small interior has been redone with enough seating for twenty diners.  A neon sign on a faux-brick wall and a quirky mural of cats longing for burgers and kebab round up the eatery's decor elements.  A couple tables were taken during my stop at lunchtime, but most of the traffic flowing in consisted of delivery drivers picking up takeout orders.

The Food

It should come as no surprise that KBF's menu comprises kebab, burgers and fries.  The kebab are not restricted to Iran's most famous beef/lamb koobideh mixture, but also comprise chicken, shrimp and wings all halal.

Their delicious meat skewers can be served in a wrap, on a salad or even a poutine.  We had it in burger form, which is tucked in a special type of thick, fluffy flatbread.  Served with their signature KBF sauce, onions and parsley, this burger was a beast not to be missed.

Their other burgers deviate from the ordinary with ingredients such as aged cheddar, crispy chips, fried pineapple and eggs.  The one we had the aptly-named "dopamine" featured more of that KBF sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms and roast beef on top of a veal patty.

Be prepared to get your hands dirty with this one from all that sauce and meat juices; no one will frown on you for licking your fingers.  We then ended with a basket of jumbo chicken wings in a hickory BBQ sauce more finger lickin'!

The Verdict

Given the owners' globe-spanning itineraries, what better spot to land their new venture than the western part of downtown called Shaughnessy Village, with its increasingly-multicultural population and dining selection.  While the area is already saturated with restaurants and sees high turnover, something tells us KBF will stick around.

After all, where else can you have kebab and burgers, but also kebab in burgers?


Montreal Trip

"As a connoisseur of savory delights, I recently had the pleasure of sampling the offerings at Kebab, Burgers & Fries, and I must say, it was an experience worth writing about. First off, let's talk about the kebabs. Succulent, tender, and bursting with flavor, these kebabs were a true delight for the taste buds. Whether you opt for the classic chicken or indulge in the exotic flavors of lamb or beef, each bite is a journey through layers of perfectly seasoned meat, grilled to perfection. But what truly sets Kebab, Burgers & Fries apart is not just the quality of their food, but also the warm and inviting atmosphere they cultivate. From the friendly staff to the cozy ambiance, dining here feels like visiting an old friend's kitchen, the comfortable, welcoming, and filled with good food and laughter."
