In Australia, a Lebanese kebab is usually a thick round bit of pita bread wrapped around some bits of spiced, compressed meat (chicken, beef, pork are standard choices) plus a variety of vegetable matter such as lettuce, tomato, tabooli and humus (last two spelt phonetically). There is also a vegetarian option - instead of compressed meat, you get these round fried balls made from chic peas (I think). Anyway, the whole thing is very greasy and drippy and can also include chilli, garlic, tomato or BBQ sauce. Surprisingly enough, it doesn't taste too bad. Usual price is about $4AUD.

I've recently moved to USA and have got a hankering for a good kebab. Haven't seen one yet. From my short experience of California, it looks like Mexican food has really taken this niche and there seems to be little Lebanese cuisine around. Correct me if I'm wrong!
