Food: Why Oreno's DIY kebab kit is a winner

Showcasing his take on classic kushiyaki - marinated meat and/or veg speared on bamboo sticks, cooked on a charcoal grill and served on a bed of salad with a side of sticky rice - Cambridge’s Moz Khudairi quit a high-flying corporate career to launch Oreno, Japanese for ‘my’, last year.

When his usual street food pitches were closed by Covid, Moz devised a DIY kit so people can recreate the Oreno experience at home, and asked us to test it out.

We tried three different skewers, chicken, beef and pork belly. Delivered to the door at an appointed time, so we could whisk them straight into the fridge, all arrived ready marinated and good to grill. Swift and simple to cook - the only thing to note is that, if you have a mixed pack, you need to pop the pork on five minutes before the others, so they’re ready in synch - the skewers come with Oreno’s signature rice, salad and sauces. The result is a fresh and flavour-packed meal.

If you feel like a sweet treat, you can add a portion of matchamisu: Moz’s green-tea infused take on the classic tiramisu, it’s rich yet light and thoroughly moreish.

Orders should be placed by noon on Thursday for free delivery on Saturday, in and around Cambridge. With prices starting at £19.50 for a chicken kushiyaki pack for two, we think it’s brilliant value, as well as being brilliant food.
