When you walk into a food store and order a skewered dish, what name do you call it? Kebab or kabob?  Does the difference in name infer different methods of preparation? The truth is, both kebab and kabob are correct. But a closer study shows that there are even more names to identify this skewered dish. 

Let’s go back in time a bit to understand the name-changing journey of this delectable skewered delicacy. Arguably, the first people to make skewered meat popular were the Turks. 

After the day’s long and arduous journey, Turkish merchants would set up a fire under the glittering star and roast lamb meat which they called kebap. The practice of smoking meat over fire then spread on with every new mouth that tasted the sumptuous dish. And until today, kebab stores in the US such as donerG credit their tasty kebab recipes to the Turks. 


Through the decades, the original name, kebap, has undergone alterations. Many have different names for it, such as kabob, kebab,  kabab, kephav, kebob, kibob, etc. 

It’s just like the spelling differences in the unit for measuring length. Americans say meter while people from the UK prefer meter. 

So when next you work into a nearby donerG store and ask for a kebab or kabob, we know you’re right and will serve your skewered dish with whatever assortments you desire.
