|In Search of Chicken
||[Sep. 5th, 2010|05:35 pm]
I get my protein mainly from chicken and I don't like cooking it at home (not to mention that I'm incompetent at it), so I've been trying to find a restaurant where I can get take-out chicken. As in, just chicken and nothing else. My hope is that by getting a bulk quantity of it, I'd save both time and money compared to eating out. Considering that this is a bit of an unusual order, I've been confining myself to mediterranean restaurants since they all have kebabs on the menu.
I started with Med Wraps. They didn't have chicken kebab, but their lamb kebab for $6 gave me enough meat to last several meals, so I was encouraged. (But lamb won't do it for me; poultry is the only meat I eat on a regular basis.)
Next I tried Gyros Gyros, and another location of Med Wraps (yes, all the mediterranean restaurants in Palo Alto have awfully unspecific names). Both of these had chicken kebab on the menu, but interpreted my order to mean that I wanted the vegetables, rice, etc. taken out of a normal order of kebab, and yet be charged the same price. Needless to say, completely cost-ineffective.
That means I am still chickenless. Any suggestions where to try next?
According to Wikipedia, kebab is also spelt kebap, kabab, kebob, kabob, kibob, kebhav, kephav, or qabab.
