Fantastic little meat (they spell Meat wrong) shop and hot food place.

Nawzar is run by this friendly eccentric owner who really made a place like this welcoming. As soon as you walk in, you'll realize there's very little room to maneuver around. The place is narrow where the hot foods and kebabs are up front while the meats and some dry goods are in the back of the place.

The smell of the BBQ is what lured me here. They use a charcoal grill inside to cook some of the many kebobs they have displayed for you. For $8, you're getting a giant chicken skewer and a large takeout box of rice and bread. The chicken skewers take some time (20 min) so take a nice walk around if you have to or call in advance.

The chicken meat is so tender and juicy. That charcoal aroma is the epitome of what summer should entail. The meat is lightly seasoned but the chicken and the charcoal do all they need to. They also have other kinds of kebabs, but chicken breast is so damn good. Other hot food items include lamb shanks, chicken leg quarters, and spaghetti (Persian kind?). The rice mixtures they have are good such as cranberry rice, veggie, and lentil rice.

When coming here, you can't leave without picking up something to eat. The hot foods counter looks good early, but can be a bit of a downer the later in the evening you go so come early. The weekends can be pretty packed so be ready. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area as there aren't many great places around.
