For arguably the best Mediterranean cuisine in the Lansing area, look no further than Choupli Wood-Fired Kabob on Saginaw Highway.
Choupli serves freshly grilled eats, ranging from chicken and beef kabobs to lamb kafta and halloumi cheese. Make a plate with your choice of three sides featuring Mediterranean standards like hummus, tabbouli, baba ghannouj, and more. If you feel like getting hands-on, you can build a wrap with your choice of veggies.
Not only is it a spectacle to see meat sizzling on a wood-fired grill right in front of your eyes, the service is as friendly as can be. They treat their guests like family, so don’t be afraid to ask a question if you’re unsure about what to order.
The combination of fresh, delicious food and cordial service have helped Choupli build a loyal following. We went on a Saturday afternoon around 2:00 PM and the line was practically out the door, which was surprising because we thought we selected an off-time to dine. Unfortunately, they were already out of beef kabobs by the time we reached the front of the line! This could be viewed as a major disappointment, but it’s a testament to their wonderful cuisine.
Choupli Wood-Fired Kabob is located at 4411 W Saginaw Hwy, Lansing, MI 48917.
