Moby Dick: Moby's chicken platter
Moby Dick's house of Kabob has 12 locations in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. My standard dish there is the "Moby's chicken platter" which has a skewer of marinated chicken, rice, a small salad, bread, and yogurt sauce. The good: The chicken is excellent, marinated and grilled it is tender and juicy with good flavor. The rice is likewise good. I don't know how they make it, but it is better than any rice I make. They also have some sort of dull red spice that is very good if you put it on the rice. The less good: The side salad. It has iceburg lettuce, onion, feta cheese, tomato, and olives. It sounds like it should be good, but it ends up being shredded lettuce with bits of other stuff. Not bad, just not great. Another less good item: the atmosphere, there really isn't any. just tables and hard bench booths. Don't go there for the ambiance, go there for the food, which is quite good.
