How much do you love lamb? Hot Luck is prepared to find out. The food and music festival is hosting a Kebabathon over the next four days. The promotion is a celebration of shaved roasted meat and its global influences co-sponsored by the American Lamb Board..
How does it work? You head to one of the four participating restaurants, purchase a kebab, grab a passport card and get in a stamp in it and then try and collect all four through Sunday. If you compete your passport by visiting all four stops, you get (in addition to a belly full of tasty lamb) a pair of lamb-branded socks or water bottle. Not baaaaa’d. (Sorry.)
The four participating restaurants and their menus below:Frank, 407 Colorado St. Merguez sausage in pita with harissa labneh and red pepper sauce. Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd. Lamb Frikadelle with Duckefett Kebabalicious, 1311 E. 7th St. Ground spiced lamb with farm-to-table charbroiled zucchini, caramelized red onions, arugula/shredded lettuce mix, heirloom tomatoes, shredded smoked gouda, topped with tzatziki & red sauce. Wrapped up in a za’atar spiced pita. Clay Pit, 1601 Guadalupe St. Seekh Kebab: Prepared with minced lamb, ginger and spices, grilled on skewers in Tandoor.
“Honestly, we consider kebabs, shawarmas and gyros to all be interchangeable – showcasing and educating that Doners from Europe, Kababs from India, Shawarmas from the middle east, gyros from Turkey, souvlakis from Greece are all kebabs,” Hot Luck’s Adi Anand said.
