Kebaba is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Bend, Oregon.  On Friday I ate there for the first time.  When I walked in the door, I was ecstatic to see that the lunch special was vegan 🙂 , but my excitement was tempered by seeing lamb– baby sheep– on the menu.  Of course, there were plenty of other animals on the menu, too.

No– baby sheep are no “better” than any other animal species, but yet I somehow still get a visceral reaction when I see “lamb” on restaurant menus.  Is it because I never ate lamb even before I went vegan?  Or, is it because I currently volunteer at a goat rescue that also cares for sheep?  At any rate, it does bring up a certain question…

A friend gave me this sticker.

Kebaba is located on Newport Avenue.

I chose the spicy tomato eggplant soup with my curried tempeh salad.  The soup was outstanding.  The salad and pita bread were delicious.

I tried a bite of my sister’s curried lentil soup.  It was almost like a puree, which I liked very much.

The “Karnabeet” appetizer (seared cauliflower with lemon tahini sauce) was crazy good.  Not only could I live on cooked cauliflower anyway, but I do believe I could drink lemon tahini sauce straight.

This was a great vegan meal.  It’s just too bad that the whole restaurant couldn’t be vegan.  It could SO easily be!
