Kabob koobideh (Persian: کباب کوبیده‎) or kūbide (Persian: کوبیده‎) is a ground beef kabob.

Armenians call it Lule Kabob, In Egypt and Arabic countries it’s called Kofta. But whatever the name, these lusciously fragrant, savory skewers of chopped, seasoned ground meat are one of the favorite dishes of Middle eastern cousin.

The meat is finely ground and given a special seasoning, It is then skewered and grilled and served with grilled tomatoes and paper on the bed of fluffy basmati rice, and butter on top of the rice. Somagh (powdered sumac) is also made available, and can be sprinkled on the rice.

You can also combine it with one skewer of Barg, The combination of one barg and one koobideh is called a Soltani, meaning “for the sultan”.

Another good reason to eat Koobideh in Raffi’s Place  is to enjoy Sabzi, a mix of fresh Basil, onion and radish, served with fresh, soft flat bread, that comes gratis before your meal.
