Brother and Sister Serve BBQ Kansas City Style
By Pete Allman
Shireen Kort and her brother Nabeel Kort are food connoisseurs, especially when it comes to Kansas City Style Barbeque. Nabeel who lived in Kansas City for 13 years, decided to move West to Hollywood to further his acting career. After tasting various barbeque around Los Angeles, Nabeel was so disappointed that he conducted his own research and developed his own barbeque sauce. That's when they opened The Kansas City BBQ Company.
"I love barbeque, especially Hickory smoked pork, beef and chicken. That's why I open my restaurant with my sister, not to mention catering to the studios and actors I admire." he stated.
While Nabeel's trained chefs are cooking away, Nabeel himself is busy making people laugh at The Comedy Store and various other clubs around Hollywood. As he often will admit, "laughter is good for everyone and good barbeque pays the bills."
The Kansas City BBQ Company serves 80 different beers in their lounge area. It's a rustic environment, where great conversation and barbeque go hand in hand. Speaking about beer and barbeque, ah you're in for a real treat. The beer recommended on this occasion was Cavroche, a French beer, which was excellent with the pork, beef brisket, and chicken we tasted. My guest, Enrique Bonilla, one of L.A,'s top photographers said he never had such a unique taste with Nabeel's spicy sauce. But that's not all there is to making Kansas City style barbeque. All the beef and chicken is hand rubbed before it's smoked with Hickory in the smoker. The Baby back ribs for instance fall off the bone. It's that good.My suggestion is to order their baked beans and potato salad, along with their sweet potato fries. It's all you need to settle back and taste the mouth watering barbeque, Kansas City Style.
Big eaters can feast on the combo plates for a mere $18.99 or a sandwich for as little as $7.99 up to $9.99.
For desert, don't forget to order homemade Pecan or Sweet potato pie, Banana pudding, or Peach Cobbler from $3.50 to $4.00.For an extra treat, try Nabeel's Deep Fried Poptart a la mode for $5.95. Now that I have aroused your taste buds, all you need to do is fax your order in at (818) 754-8910 or call (818) 754-0030. The Kansas City BBQ Company is located at 10863 Magnolia Blvd. in North Hollywood. They also provide party platters. Perhaps Nabeel Kort would lend his comedy act with the party platters for a festive occasion. Tell Nabeel Pete sent ya!
