Kebbros Opens
This new craft casual doner concept, landing along the Cahuenga Corridor, features a highly customizable menu with wraps, salads and bowls using shawarma-style proteins. Kebbros is a certified Green Restaurant Association member and will serve locally sourced and certified organic ingredients to give you a high-quality spin on the incredibly popular European doner kebab. Kebbros is the brainchild of brothers and Co-owners Romeo and Sergio Syfrig, along with Sergio’s wife, Tiziana “Ana” Syfrig. Doner kebab, which usually consists of seasoned meat prepared on a rotating spit licked by flames, carved into slices and served atop pita bread, has long been a mainstay of European food culture. Available at almost any street corner across Europe, doner is fast and easy to prepare and incredibly tasty, making it ideal to enjoy as a mid-day meal or as a late-night snack. Kebbros will be the first restaurant in California utilizing a unique, fully automated robotic machine to carve meat off the rotating spits in the open kitchen. The robot can slice meat directly off the spit without ever coming into contact with the hot metal itself. Not only does this allow for a more comfortable and hygienic preparation process, it also creates a safer environment as staff are not exposed to direct heat. Cuts are also more precise, which ensures consistency and higher overall quality, and the integrated gas fired barbecue helps to reduce gas consumption by 30-40%, saving precious energy as a result. At the culinary helm is Los Angeles’ own Dave Northrup (Rush Street, City Tavern), who serves as Kebbros’ Executive Chef and brings with him more than 20 years of culinary insight and experience running multiple successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Northrup has designed a menu with limitless combinations. Select from a variety of bases, including a Pita Pocket, Flatbread Wrap, Organic Black Rice Bowl or Farmers Market Salad, select a spit of seasoned organic beef, Mary’s Organic Chicken or even a seitan-based vegan doner, and top it all off with up to five farm-fresh seasonal toppings and a drizzle of dressing or sauce. All dishes can be prepared Kebbros Style, featuring chopped tomatoes, red cabbage, romaine, pickled red onions, feta, crispy onions and the signature Kebbros sauce, or wholly customized based on each individual diner’s personal preferences. Side dishes include the Hummus Sampler (trio of organic chickpea hummus, pita crisp and seasonal vegetables), the Housemade Pomme Frittes or the Kebbros Gravy Fries! To round out the menu, Kebbros serves a number of refreshing drinks, including a range of organic sodas such as the Blood Orange Organic Soda or the Lemon Ginger Ale Organic Soda to help quench any thirst. The restaurant will also offer a variety of organic, USDA certified beers and biodynamic wines for those interested in imbibing in something a little more adventurous. Wednesday; 1542 N. Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
