What to Have for Lunch: Kebabs of Hayes Valley's Lamb Wrap
Kebabs of Hayes Valley is not the same restaurant as Hayes & Kebab, okay? Yeah, it's located in the same space, and the name of this three-month-old restaurant is awfully familiar, and the menu's almost identical. Hayes & Kebab, which Tablehopper reported was "squeezed out" of the space this winter, is expected to move two blocks away. Until the two restaurants are open simultaneously and SFoodie can conduct a kebab-off, we have contented ourselves with Kebabs of Hayes Valley's lamb shish kebab wrap ($6.95), which is to Truly Mediterranean's shawerma rolls as the Southern California burrito is to Papalote's: skinnier and plainer. The lamb chunks are grilled to order, then combined with a discreet tomato-cucumber-onion salad and shredded lettuce, napped in a pale orange tahini sauce, and tightly rolled in lavash.
