Te Wei Chinese Kabobs specializes in the Chinese Muslim street food "chuanr," grilled and skewered kabobs. Most of the ingredients used — vegetables, seafood, meats, you name it — are seasoned with cumin, chili flakes, salt and sesame, and practically everything is covered in sesame seeds. None of the kabobs costs more than $2. Some, like the quail eggs, chicken hearts and most of the vegetables, are only 50 cents. Add a bowl of soup and some dumplings and you have a relatively healthy and shockingly inexpensive meal that's big on flavor and interest. Even if Te Wei's menu isn't the typical phone book-length tome, regular Chinese restaurant rules apply: It's closed on Tuesday.
