As their name suggests, Qbab is a small kiosk offering Middle Eastern / Turkish style kebab rolls. A cute play on words, the owners hope people "Q for their Qbabs", this stall sources chicken and lamb from Halal suppliers fresh daily, then their meat is marinated overnight. This insistence on freshness extends to their no MSG policy, and the concept of Qbab is rather fast-food style; choose a meat, choose a variety of vegetables, then choose a sauce.

Ambience at Qbab is simple but functional. The small floor space is an open concept area, divided by a long, communal dining table, and several individual tables. You can see the chefs in the open kitchen preparing the meat for roasting / grilling! Part of the appeal of Qbab is watching them handcraft your kebab roll from scratch. Furniture is functional but not very comfortable, this is very much an eat-and-go place, with quite a lot of people ordering takeaway.

Service at Qbab is completely self-service, with ordering, payment, and collection all done over the counter. At least staff are friendly and engaging, able to describe the various choices of vegetables and sauces, and they fulfill orders quickly too. If dining in, staff do help to clear empty / dirty tables, though it's encouraged that you do this yourself.

Food at Qbab is all about Turkish / Middle Eastern kebab rolls. Portions are large for individuals, and quite filling. Besides 2 types of protein (chicken or lamb) to choose from, you can also stuff your kebab roll with between 0 - 5 vegetables (lettuce, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, jalapenos), and cheese. Qbab also offers a variety of 7 sauces, you can choose 1 or 2 sauces to fill your kebab roll. Prices are reflective of its premium, hand crafted status, rather like high-end fast food, budget about SGD $14 for a kebab roll with a drink.

You can't miss this corner stall, smack in the middle of the walkway! When nearby, you'll even be able to smell the enticing aroma of meat roasting / grilling!

Qbab Sauce & Vegetables Choices



There is a variety of cold Canned Drink (SGD $1.50) here, along with several choices for sides. Most are packaged items though.

Canned Drink



Their signature Hand Crafted Kebab is generously stuffed with a choice of meat (chicken or lamb), sourced from Halal suppliers, along with a variety 0 - 5 vegetables, cheese, and 1 choice of sauce. There's also a vegetarian option (made with falafel) available. If you go during the day, the chef will slice the meat as you watch, stuff the kebab roll as you like, then heat it to hold everything together!

Hand Crafted Kebab



The Kebab Chicken With Garlic & Ginger Aioli (SGD $10.50) has chicken meat that is moist and chewy in texture, within a thin wheat flatbread that has a slightly crisp exterior from baking. The vegetables lend a fresh, bright, juicy crunch to texture, while the garlic & ginger aioli is sharp and punchy in flavour. Sure to linger on your breath for a while! I quite like this sauce, and actually ordered in on 2 separate occasions!

The Kebab Lamb With Hummus (SGD $13) has lamb meat that is slightly gamey, but still moist, and semi-tender in texture, within the same tasty, thin wheat flatbread with a slightly crisp exterior from baking. Again, the vegetables lend a fresh, bright, juicy crunch to texture. The hummus paste still has that distinct nut-like, buttery, earthy taste of smoothly mashed chickpeas, but I notice it's a little thinner in texture, because it's supposed to be a sauce instead of a dip. Still very tasty though!
