Kabab Korner has opened at 706-A N. DuPont Highway, Dover, and offers a blend of Chinese and Indian foods.
A new restaurant right in the center of Dover is taking a new approach to some international cuisines, fusing Chinese and Indian foods onto one menu.
Calvin and Dennis Chu opened Kabab Korner at 706-A N. DuPont Highway, Dover, on Nov. 14.
Both men, along with employee Mike Lew, sat down with the Dover Post on Nov. 14 to discuss what makes their restaurant so unique to the area.
Q What made you decide to open here in Dover?
A Calvin: My family has been in the restaurant business for a long time, my mom, dad and my uncle. And we needed something new in Dover. Especially like kababs, a lot of people like that.
Q What kind of food can people expect when they eat here?
A Calvin: It’s a fusion of Indian and Chinese, because my blood is Chinese but we were born in Indian, and migrated to America a couple of years ago. So you pretty much get kababs, and get a lot of Indian and Chinese dishes mixed together. It’s something that you don’t see much at all in Dover actually.
Q How is your menu priced?
A Dennis: The prices are pretty low, pretty good. It’s not too expensive for the cuisine, the top-quality food you’re going to be getting, and the quantity is pretty good and the taste is marvelous. You should definitely give it a shot. It’s nothing over $10. You can get a plate full for lunch. It could be enough for one, or even for two. And it’s not much you have to spend on lunch or dinner.
Q How is the food prepared?
A Mike: It’s all made fresh to order, including the bread, the meat, everything. Nothing is frozen.
Dennis: Kababs are not something you can just heat up and sell. It doesn’t taste that good that way. If you want people to like it you actually have to do it fresh. It takes some time but it’s worth the wait.
Q What do you typically get with your order?
A Mike: Basically, with each order you get the main course, which is the meat, and then you get the rice on the side, you get a salad and you get some beans on the side, too. It’s a lot of food on one plate.
Calvin: There are basically three goals we have — quantity, quality and great price. And you can get all three here. Hopefully, people will come and start tasting the fusion.
