A1 Kebab and Cafe, Frankston by Bureaucrat

A weekend reconnaissance to inspect property was why we were in Frankston.  I don't know much about Frangers except that, well, it's full of bogans, and you drive past it on the way to Mornington Peninsular (you simply must come and stay at my Portsea home, daarrling).

With a tip from the property development manager, Mr P, we went in search of a kebab place in the main shopping area for lunch.  According to the owner of A1 Kebab and Cafe it does a brisk trade.  I was really looking forward to ordering their charcoal grilled meat skewers but was disappointed to learn that they only serve that at dinnertime (however, I think since our visit they now serve the charcoal grilled meats at lunch too).

Between the four of us, we ordered two lamb souvlakis and two pides.  The souv was pretty good - lots of lamb, salad, garlic sauce and soft bread.  For me, the lamb is the most important part.  There was lots of it, it was tender and it wasn't fatty or greasy.  We could tell that the owner really takes pride and a lot of care to make the souvs.

To mix it up, we also got two salami and cheese pides.  These were okay - a bit manufactured in texture (like a Hot Pocket) and it came with your choice of dipping sauce (and we picked a yoghurt dip).

Verdict

We liked it.

Overall

A nice kebab shop.  If I'm in the area again, I'd definitely go back to try the charcoal grilled stuff.
