The quarantine season has got everyone losing their usual routines, and that includes eating outside and/or ordering some takeaway. However, given the presence and the continuous operation of food delivery services all over Metro Manila during the quarantine period, it is still possible for us to crave for anything and get to eat them at the same time. To be honest, since I haven’t traveled anywhere this 2020, I miss the idea of traveling and eating some foreign food. I have always been a fan of Persian food, and I love kebabs! The last time I ate the best kebabs, hummus, and pita was back in Singapore last year when a colleague and I explored the food culture in Arab restaurants in Kampong Glam area.
Worry not, because upon searching for my specific food cravings here in Manila this quarantine season, I came across a newly-opened kebab delivery service, Jamie’s Kebabs. It’s very convenient that they have several options such as order and pick-up as well as delivery through foodpanda.
Jamie’s Kebabs is operated by the same owners of the Main Restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. I used to work in Ortigas area and live in Kapitolyo, and I’m surely missing this area where there’s a lot of restaurants to choose from! But for now, our best and safest option is food delivery. I don’t mind this option at all because we will surely get the same quality of food whether it’s dine in or takeaway.
I was able to try their beef and chicken kebab with buttered rice. I ditched eating rice a long time ago because of my new diet plan, but I just can’t resist trying out. It looked delicious in the menu and it did not fail me! The rice cheat day was worth it!
By the way, their kebab meals are also available with pita instead of rice.
They also sell other menu items such as pita bread and hummus, which are perfect for me since I’m counting calories. The hummus in particular reminded me of those Arab restaurants in Singapore, no kidding. I always pair hummus with a pita or wheat bread. Yummy! I’ve been looking for the best hummus all over the Metro for regular consumption, and thankfully I already found the place to buy such!
Next time I am planning to buy and try more items at Jamie’s Kebabs, and when the situation gets better, I would want to try some poutine at Main Restaurant Kapitolyo, something I’ve been wanting to do before.
Here are the details on how to order at Jamie’s Kebabs:
Overall, I could say that Jamie’s Kebabs is gonna be worth your money if you are planning to order some healthy comfort food this quarantine. We could always settle with the convenience brought by fastfoods, but personally I always want a healthy alternative as much as possible. The quality and taste of the food available at Jamie’s Kebabs is really good, so I encourage you to try them!
