My wife and I ate at the Kam-Moon yesterday after work, located at the corner of Brunswick Street and Cogswell. For a mere $6.95 you get a pita pocket filled with either falafel, Greek chicken, steak shwarma, beef kofta, beef sausage, beef liver, garlic shrimp OR calamari – as well as baked potato, pickled carrot and a delicious fried pastry dessert known as Tulumba.
My wife chose the chicken and I had the garlic shrimp.
Ordinarily we like to share our meals – but this was so darned good that we each ate our choices up before we even thought to share.
The pita bread was fresh and thick and delightfully amazing. I know when I wrote “pita pocket” each one of you started thinking about those flat flavorless wraps that you can buy at the grocery store – but forget about that misconception. The bread alone – which is also sold separately – was some of the best tasting bread that I had ever tasted.It is warm and fresh and truly unique.
The torshee, or pickled carrot was crisp and refreshing. I spoke with the owner and he said that he is going to be trying different vegetables such as cucumber, turnip and the like.
The potatoes were tasty and flavorful.
The dessert, tulumba – was a little bit like Mexican churro only sweeter and with a better texture.
I’m rating this five stars – but only because that is all of the stars that Facebook allows me to put. After we ate we purchased a bag of bread to take home for home use, as well as a bowl of rice pudding and another serving of yummy tulumba.
The manager and the staff were courteous, friendly and VERY attentive.
The Kam-Moon restaurant is located on the corner of Cogswell and Brunswick, just down the street from Scotia Square and the office that I work at. I would recommend this eatery highly. It offers light, tasty and truly filling cuisine and bread that would be worth wrestling a grizzly bear for.
