Streatham Kebab, Fish and Chips House, Streatham, London   2 comments

 

Up at 5:30 Monday and out of the house at 7:30 without breakfast, I had a pint at 9 then three more at the tail end of the day’s run.  I was starved as I ran the final segment to the station when the aroma of fetid lamb fat (my favourite!) wafted out of the Streatham Kebab, Fish & Chips House.  “Döner meat and chips, please,” and I waited patiently as the elephant leg spun slowly before the heater.  The chilli sauce could have been thicker and hotter, but I couldn’t fault any of the rest of this divine ½ kg of stomach distress.

Yummy.

Best Kebab, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire   2 comments

 

I had a long journey home and knew I wouldn’t fancy cooking so I looked around for dinner near the station.  The runs today and yesterday had taken their toll on me and I felt I could eat just about anything and absorb the worst it had to offer.  The worst that the Best Kebab had to offer was an insidious saltiness that had me at the water tap all night but the kebab wasn’t too fatty and it tasted more like actual lamb than filler.  I’ve definitely had worse.

Kebab Centre, Ruislip, Middlesex   Leave a comment

The reason I made such a big deal about Uncle Jim’s kebab was that it was so unusual: most kebabs you get were like the one I inflicted on myself (or, rather, with which I afflicted myself) at the Kebab Centre in Ruislip yesterday.  Yuck.  I couldn’t decide if it was the meat or the salad that imparted the rotting compost essence but the congealed grease that collected in my mouth and esophagus definitely came from the Beast that was passed off as lamb (as did the salt that had me attached to a water bottle for the next 6 hours: I drank as much water last night as I would, usually, in 2 days).

Uncle Jim’s, Richmond, London   1 comment

I was hungry after a day of running and drinking and I really wanted a bit of cod but a guy at the Red Cow pointed me to Uncle Jim’s and I hope someday to thank him in person.  The meat was actually chunks of lamb (not some minced and reconstituted elephant leg like in most kebaberies).  The chips were perfect and the chilli sauce actually contained Habanero (Scotch bonnet) peppers and had a real heat to it.  The small was too much food but I would have gorged on two large orders if I had them in front of me.  Yum.

Heathrow Fish & Chips Best Kebab, Harmondsworth, London   1 comment

I haven’t had doner meat and chips in 14 months and went to the Heathrow Fish & Chips Best Kebab Eat In or Takeaway Restaurant to have a bit of cod but didn’t want to wait for the fish to cook.  I bet it would have been excellent because the meat was divine.  Go soon: this is part of the planned and unnecessary expansion of Heathrow.

Saray Kebab and Pizza, Salisbury, Wiltshire   2 comments

Saray Kebab & Pizza kebab

I tried to get food at three separate stalls in the Salisbury Food and Drink Festival but left each when people who came after me were served before.  I just wanted something to soak up the alcohol from the five pub stops, so I went off the square to the nearest kebab place, Saray on the Endless Street.

It’s not great, but it was more substantial than a similar amount of money would have yielded back at The Event, which if not for the beer tent could have gone and fucked itself.

Woody Grill, Mornington Crescent, London   Leave a comment

Woody Grill Mornington Crescent kebab

 

The first bite of the kebab wrap spewed sauce and grease out the bottom of the wax paper splattering my trousers.  I had just changed into these after a long day of runs all over NW and N London but they were not fit to wear any longer.  Shit.

Good kebab, though.  After 6 pints and no food all day, this was just what I needed.

And, no, it did not give me a Woody.  Like most old dudes, I had to pay for my Woody.
