Review: Daphne's Greek Cafe - Kabob Plate

Daphne's Kabob Plate
I keep calling Daphne's Greek Cafe "Daf-feens" instead of "Daf-knees" even though there's no "i" in there. It's a Southern California Greek fast casual chain. The Sister-in-Law likes it because they give free food for your birthday and it's near her workplace. She brought home a Mix & Match Two Kabob Plate one night, around the time of her birthday. It normally costs $8.79.

Besides the the Grilled Chicken and Grilled Steak Kabob. Your choice of any two sides including Greek salad (tomatoes, feta cheese, and lettuce), rice pilaf, or French Fries. Also accompanying the meal are a few slices of pita bread and Tzatziki sauce (yogurt sauce).

The beef was fairly chewy. But the chicken was fine and tender enough. A bit light on seasoning, but still fine.

As for the sides, the rice pilaf tends toward dryness. The salad was relatively fresh and the pita was warm and soft.

Overall, I would rather just get a gyro over the kabobs.

  1. Its called Daphne's (Daf-knees) after the Greek Goddess. You might edit the first paragraph because you don't know the history behind the name of the Greek goddess in mythology or how to pronounce the name.
