"Lula" are grilled Kazakh kebabs made from minced, seasoned lamb, customarily served over a bed of thinly sliced onions dusted with sumac. That's just how they're done at Lula Kebab House, and they're delectable. A piquant pepper dip of chutney consistency comes alongside the lula, as does a choice of basmati rice, tabbouleh, or mashed or roasted potatoes. Lula skewers its specialty with beef and chicken as well. The same meats come whole as shish kebabs, as do sturgeon and salmon, the last lathered in a tart/sweet pomegranate molasses. But this kebab house serves much more than kebabs. Do as the Russian émigré clientele do and have one of the amiable waiters slap a frozen bottle of vodka and some shot glasses on the table. It's like being back in the USSR, even for those who've never been.Read our full review.
