There is this little kebab joint right in the middle of Itaewon that i visit every time i’m near it. It’s right off the Itaewon station exit. I’ve probably been there at least 20 times or so. One of the reasons why i want to live in Ichon dong is because it’s so damn close to Itaewon. So many foreigner friendly restaurants in Itaewon.
The name of the place is Ankara Picnic. They have lamb and chicken kebabs. The place is halal. Like real kosher. The restaurant is a shack. Real small and usually you will see a line of about 8-12 people. But it’s totally worth the wait. They don’t have much room to eat inside but it’s ok cause you can step outside and eat it out on the street. Take in the funky Itaewon air and watch the eclectic mix of people walking by as you bite down on your middle eastern burrito. Only in Itaewon.
The Kebabs at Ankara Picnic are about 4 bucks. I usually get mine with a dash of spicy sauce and a whole lot of white sauce. Im getting hungry just thinking about it. They have a bunch of kebab restaurants in Itaewon. Don’t just walk into any tho. The one right down the street is real shitty. Trust me and hit up Ankara Picnic. And no I’m not being paid by Mr. Picnic for this very fine review of his establishment.
