Pera Kebab opened in the space formerly occupied by Sharaku, one of Dallas’ favorite izakayas. The Uptown restaurant is simple and brightly lit, with an open kitchen that let’s everyone watch the cooks assemble meals. There are two shawarma spits turning, one with lamb and one with beef, and when the restaurant is busy, the grill is loaded with meat kebabs.
Turkish standards including hummus, tabouleh and babaganoush are all great, and it’s hard to go wrong with any of the sandwiches. For a quick lunch or a meal before a movie or show, Pera offers a great deal with most items hovering around $11. And the Uptown party-set will appreciate the weekend hours. The place is open till 4 a.m.
