I eat “riisikebab” (or “kebab riisillä”, kebab with rice) very often.
I have a stomach problem and I should be following the FODMAP (Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, Mono- saccharides And Polyols) diet, otherwise my stomach goes crazy. But riisikebab, is almost always a safe choice. No gluten, no onion, no beans, no broccoli, no cabbage, no jalapeno, no garlic, no coconut, no blueberries (although I’m in Finland!), and the list goes on.
But riisikebab, is almost always a safe option. There is rice, kebab meat slices (which is made of… beef I guess, in Finland at least*), and a salad consisting of lettuce, and often tomato slices, and onion slices with one or two jalapenos, with some sauce on the kebab and on the salad. I do have to remove the onions and jalapenos, but otherwise it’s mostly safe for me.
A riisikebab meal is often affordable, from 8 to 12 euros, but mostly just below 10 euros. And, if you order it as a take out meal, and often I would become full eating two-third of it, so the rest of one-third could become a part of my next meal.
I doubt it’s a healthy meal, but for me, kebabriisi is an integral part of my life in Finland. I eat it so often I am going to review it so I would remember which restaurant has what kind of kebab, and I hope some readers would find it helpful.
*I should maybe mention here that so far, Finland is the only country I have eaten kebab
