in Herne Hill. Best Ive ever had.
Also, Edgeware road has some damn nice kebab.
The two on my street now are both pretty rubs.
I have been doing kebab reviews, rarely updated these days but in my student days there was an actual blog and everything. There is only so much you can say about a kebab.
good to hear someone's beaten me to the punch, saved me and my arteries from myself.
much better maintained and updated than mine also. I am sure I read one where they seemed to have one pretty much daily, which is worrying.
I want a kebab (donner, in a pitta, all veg except onions, I don't want to stink tomorrow, garlic sauce AND chili sauce), and I want some chips on top. Charge me for a kebab and chips, that's fine. But it causes bafflement everywhere. Meat and chips? NO. Kebab and a box of chips? NO. Indulge my greed, I want it all mashed up together!
a mark of a good kebab place is that you can just trust them to serve you up something that will hit the spot without you micromanaging it
I don't think I have the energy this morning ;)
you're free to go about your business pal
Google Maps shows one near Herne Hill station. You mean that one? Cos there's one on Tulse Hill Rd, near Brixton Water Lane, which is OK but frankly not worth a post on DiS.
Crispy, succulent chicken in a soft, malleable wrap.
Great sauces and fresh salad.
All in all a gastronomic symphony.
Caused a vegetarian I know to lapse (bla bla flexatarian bla).
drooling over it like a work of art. It was a big donner kebab. I was pleased to see the US had them, even if the name was wrong.
Gardies in Cambridge (see above) always called it Donner Yiros.
I was so pleased to see him enjoying one of our delicacies for a change.
If you go to Greece, Gyros is a pork kebab.
when I was unemployed
Bit upmarket though.
Smash dat up.
not sure about the internal makeover but the 'shop assistant' and 2 of his mates were sharing a massive salad and some grilled whatever that looked properly well nice.
in Muswell Hill.
Charcoal-y magnificence with the added boon of quail and swordfish on the menu.
Alternatively, anywhere on Green Lanes (Harringay). Lots of Turks there that know their kebabs.
i hang around green lanes a lot and am on the hunt for tasty kebabs.
i find the best places are often pakistani style in a naan bread that you find around tooting or east london
that doesn't sound right
it is the standard surely?
Pitta is for girls and midgets.
rice, basket of warm bread, plates of salads and real, charcoal-grilled meat.
I'd imagine if you get it as a takeaway they'd just sandwich the lot together (sans rice). Nothing wrong with that.
The first time I went in there Christiano Ronaldo appeared and bought 50 quid's worth of kebabs, that was weird
and nothing beats a donner.
Am I doing it right
Doesn't need to brag about being the best on its sign or nothing
