Looking for a new type of menu?
There’s now b-skew’d in the Mall of the Bluffs.
“It’s a combination of different types of flavors,” said owner Christopher Hamenoo. “I took different styles and combined them. It’s my own style of cooking.”
Hamenoo opened his restaurant Feb. 14 and is set to have a grand opening with all the bells and whistles next Thursday, he said.
Besides a breakfast menu, the specialty at b-skew’d is shish kebab. The meat is marinated between 24 and 48 hours and “skew’d” on a 8-inch skewer, hence the restaurant’s name, Hamenoo said. The choice of meats are chicken, beef, lamb and gourmet sausage.
His grilled burgers come in beef or lamb and covered with melted cheese, lettuce, choice of ranch, sour cream or his own barbecue sauce or tomato based aioli. There is also the ultimate rice boat, served on a bed of white rice, topped with grilled veggies and meat and all covered with melted cheese, lettuce, sour cream or ranch.
Signature grilled wraps are also on the menu, as well as a kids’ menu. He also does catering.
Hamenoo began his cooking career by running a food truck out of Omaha.
“People were giving us compliments, and we decided to spread our wings a little bit more,” he said.
So far, his business has been steady with plenty of repeat patrons, Hamenoo said, adding he always guarantees “excellent customer service and delicious foods.”
“It’s something authentic and new. It’s something worth trying.”
Located in the mall’s food court, b-skew’d is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
