While there are several fluorescent-lit Middle Eastern spots along the strip, Little House of Kebobs — whose motto is “student’s house of excellency” — is certainly one of the best. And there’s not a falafel to be found!

True to its name, kebobs are the specialty here. The top-of-the-line chicken and ground beef combo ($9.75, all prices here include taxes) sees two skewers of turmeric-hued chicken and beef, smoky and lightly charred from the grill, sided with a barbecued tomato half and a delicious mound of dill-flecked buttery basmati rice studded with lima beans and perked up with lemon.

Though it’s not in the same league as Elixir’s superb version, the Wednesday and Friday daily special of Fesenjun, pomegranate chicken thick with crushed walnuts on a bed of plain basmati, is one of the most unusual and tasty dishes you’ll find on Yonge. Another daily special, veal shank (both $6.95) comes slow-cooked and tender on the bone with more of that wonderful dilled rice. Who knew that lima beans could taste so good?
