Most tender, juiciest chicken kabob ever at Sunnyvale’s Piccolo

The Kabob Combo at Piccolo in Sunnyvale.

The Kabob Combo at Piccolo in Sunnyvale.

Ever since I arrived in California in August, my stepmom has been talking about Piccolo, a Persian and Mediterranean restaurant in Sunnyvale. She has been talking about the deliciousness of the restaurant’s kabob dish, and since we’ve been eating a lot of pizza and tacos in the past week, I was ready for a change. Plus, I haven’t had a good kabob in a long time.

Dish of Choice

I chose the Kabob Combo, which came with one skewered, barbecued chicken thigh and ground beef each, a half serving of salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber and onion) and a half serving of rice. The entrée came with a side of flatbread with butter and raw onion. With a drink, the meal came out to about $16.

The Taste

I don’t know what kind of marinade they use on the chicken at Piccolo, but it was delicious. The chicken was tender and juicy, and it had a nice charring on the edges. The beef was also tender, very well seasoned and not greasy. The rice was fluffy and not sticky. The salad had a slight pickled taste to it, but it wasn’t overbearing. The dressing that they used was light and had a vinegar taste and texture to it. It was an enjoyable dish, and I had enough to take half of my meal home.

The flatbread was different. It was very thin and had a similar taste to that of saltine crackers, without the salt. I think it would be good bread to use for wrap sandwiches or making toasted chips.

The Ambiance

Piccolo is a small, clean and casual restaurant that seats about 20 people. Because of that fact, it’s a good place to get takeout during the lunch rush hour. The gentleman I assumed was the owner was very nice and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

Other Details

Piccolo is located at 897 E. El Camino Real, at the corner of Wolfe Road and El Camino Real, in Sunnyvale. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. & 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The restaurant also offers catering, and online ordering is available.
