Why we love it

Unsurprisingly, HOBA Kebabs are purveyors of kebabs. These kebabs, though, are very different from the grim, grey, late-night monstrosities that you might guiltily guzzle late at night from the dodgy shop on the way home after six-too-many pints.

Yes, HOBA Kebabs are something quite different altogether. Following her degree at Bristol University, founder and owner Hope spent time in Berlin, and rapidly discovered what anybody who's been drunk in Germany's capital city will tell you: Berlin kebabs are out.of.this.world. Inspired by this heaven-sent street that is seen and expected as standard in uber-cool Berlin, Hope returned to our almighty Bristol and set up HOBA.

This fantastic pop-up is now gracing venues across the city, and we can't get enough of them. Currently installed at the Kongs, HOBA makes high quality, gutsy kebabs that are popping with vibrant flavours and high quality produce. Oh, and about that produce: Hope works hard to source locally and seasonally, using meat from the legendary Ruby & White butchers and fresh veg from Bristol Veg Market. Hope even worked closely with local legends Joe's Bakery to develop a bespoke loaf that exactly mimics the type of bread used in making Berlin kebabs. This loaf is toasted, then filled up with all kinds of deliciousness. HOBA is environmentally conscious, too – Hope doesn't use any plastic, and all packaging is biodegradable. If you eat in (and we recommend you do, with a few pints from the bar), then you'll see that no wasteful disposables are used – everything is served in proper bowls and plates. Three cheers to that!

Got stuck in with a Chargrilled Chicken kebab and it was banging! Loved the addition of the peanuts! Will definitely be back.


Outstanding kebab


If you haven't tried Hoba Kebabs then you're missing out! Super tasty and stuffed with mouthful after mouthful of surprising nuggets of taste! Kongs can get very busy though and there's not a lot of seating so pick the time carefully


really good value for money and very tasty food! would definitely recommend :)


Great vegan food and fun games


Nice chilled bar and not too expensive.
