Fans of Mediterranean cuisine could all attest that one of the reasons why that part of Katipunan area had been filled up to the walkway with parked cars lined up to the very end of the bustling road had to be because of Hassan Kabab and Steak. Sure, we all know that Katipunan Avenue may have been a long stretch of fancy restaurants, a hole-in-the-wall and numerous food establishments but we could assure you that Hassan has its own number of loyal clienteles or regular customers given its seclusion from that dark alley across Quirino Memorial Medical Center, just beside Blue Ridge Barangay A.
Hassan Kabab and Steak is an al fresco dining area with accessible free WiFi (WiFi hoarders alert!) for their guests. WiFi is excellent so sharing photos of what you’ve eaten as well as connecting with friends online while enjoying your food won’t be a problem. They have steaks, keema, kebab, and a wide variety of food choices at really affordable prices! Imagine getting a tall glass of lassi (plain yoghurt shake) for only Php75? Two or three persons can share the huge glass of lassi alone. For shawarma, they have three options: chicken, beef and lamb.
But what probably makes this hole-in-the-wall a cut above the rest is probably because they have a lot of specialty sauces that pleases each diner's appetite. They've got loads of dippings and sauces like Herbed Garlic, garlic pepper, chili sauce, cheesy garlic, hot sauce etc. These sauces adds some kick and flavor to any order you make at Hassan's. You just got to mix and match these sauces to get that perfect flavor you wanted and thereby making your hassan dining experience truly a memorable one.
I highly recommend Shawarma Pie, good for eight slices at eleven inches. And for only Php155 per order, it perfectly suits your budget. It also comes in another variant, with Kebab as topping. (cheaper by Php10). Compared to Kebur's Pita Pie, Hassan's shawarma pie is definitely better tasting and bigger but more expensive although reasonably priced.
And look how sweet the Hassan staff when we dined during Christmass? They sent in their Christmas greetings by means of the original yoghurt sauce on our pie. I really find it cute!
Hassan Kabab and Steak is on Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City, infront of Quirino Memorial Medical Center, near Blue Ridge Baranggay A main entrance. Operating hours is from 11AM to 5AM.
