Cafe Bravo now open: kabobs on Hyperion

My Silver Lake operative Kathy sent in this dispatch from Cafe Bravo, which has finally opened on Hyperion next to Hard Times Pizza. Here's what she had to say:

Initial report: Clean, well-lighted, chicken kebob cooked to order--well seasoned and moist. Choice of sides, comes with basmati rice and pita ($7.04). You have to ask for garlic sauce....50 cents extra. Hummus/tabbouleh were tasty and fresh. Lots of locals already. Cheerful countermen rather than the cranky ladies of Zankou or Moishe's. Beef kabobs and schwarma looked good -- nice sizzling meat aroma. Great addition to the neighborhood -- parking lot a pain, however and already packed.

"Sizzling meat aroma" sounds promising, and the prices sound reasonable. Cafe Bravo and The Olive have such similar concepts. It will be interesting to see which spot does better.

It's not basmati rice. Basmati has elongated grains.

Looks and tastes more like Armenian rice which is typically converted. And delicious.
