Central Arkansas venues have a full week of commemorative events planned
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.
