A venture to this state park is on the must-do list for many, the park being the only spot in North America where you can dig for diamonds and other gemstones and keep your finds.
Kebab House, which officially opens Monday, will offer free samples today from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Rather than traditional gyros, Kebab House will serve Turkish-style doners which, according to manager Haydar Akbulut, are meatier. "And nobody else in Little Rock offers Lahmijun," said Akbulut. Lahmijun is a Turkish pizza, with beef and veggies baked atop house-made dough. More familiar offerings include chicken, lamb, beef and falafel plates, with prices ranging from about $7 to $11. Desserts will include both Turkish baklava and a drier Tunisian baklava, as well as a rotating array of homemade surprises. Kebab House's owner, Helmi Lahia is Tunisian, and Akbulut, as well as the chefs, are Turkish.
Kebab House is at 11321 W Markham St., and hours will be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Kebab House offers indoor seating, delivery and carry out and will not serve alcohol. For more info, call 246-4597.
