Kei Kebab has opened it's doors at 401 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair.  Serving tadtional Persian cuisine, Kei Kebab claims to offer "the real meaning of kebab." Let's hope so, I love meat on a stick.

The word kei means "king" or "royalty", and here you will enjoy cuisine fit for a true king. 

[The chef,] Ashkan Khalaj is from Karaj, in the Alborz province of Iran. His love of delicious food, respect for the skills of professional cooking, and appreciation for the quality of ingredients were learned in his childhood under the instruction of his grandmother. As a young boy, he watched her bake bread in her "tanooristan". She was well respected in the town and known for her mastery of Persian cooking. His mother carried this passion for Persian cooking, and taught it to him from a young age. In Iran, he cooked and sold kabobs for eight years with his own unique recipes outside his orchard.
