Toom, Glasgow

Well hello! It’s Good Friday! A day in history when Jesus was crucified, and Bob Hoskins had a very difficult day at the office. For many people in 2021, for those in work and not furloughed, it marks the beginning of a 4 day weekend, where in Scotland we can’t currently go anywhere. Good Friday […]

Mrs Falafel, Woodlands Road*

Hi! Shawarma Police reviews these days have been a bit like buses; you wait ages for one to turn up, and then it turns up. Used to be three but because of Covid, it’s just the one. And you’ve waited ages. Unlike buses, Shawarma Police won’t charge you £2.50 to go three stops down the […]

Christmas Mixed Kebab Roast, Shawarma Police HQ

Wotcha! In the words of Bono, Geldof and Ure, (there may have been others) – “It’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid”. WRONG. There are plenty of things to be afraid of at Christmas time. Here are a few that spring to mind: 1. Running out of Port. 2. Gas leaks. 3. “Christmas […]

Shawarma Grill, Paisley Road West

Hello, good evening, WELCOME! So I ran a poll (see last post) asking which eatery I should review next – the choices were Shawarma Grill, in the city’s sexy southern district, or The Partick Kebab Van, in the city’s up-and-coming “west end”. The poll was close, but here was the final result, and the vote […]

You choose da revoose

Hello. It’s been a while, and I’m hungry. Incredibly, I’ve managed to not eat a single thing* during lockdown! I know, crazy, right? I mean medical professionals reckon I should be dead! In fairness, I have had a lot to drink, so swings and roundabouts. *OK, I exaggerate, but I certainly haven’t been on the […]

Vivera Kebab

Hello there! The more observant amongst you will notice the word “plant” appears prominently here. Plant? Yes, chums, these are vegan kebabs, made from plants, not chickens or sheeps. How did I get here? Read on… I wish there was an interesting story behind how these ended up in my shopping basket. I wish I […]

Aldi – Oakhurst Chicken King Kebab

Hello everybody! So, here we are. Today is day something of lockdown. No-one knows. Time has ceased to have any meaning whatsoever. Before, we had such concepts as “Tuesday”, “next week”, and “months”. Now, all we have is “in a bit”, “eons”, and “bloody hell, was that *yesterday*???”. As a unintended consequence of being confined […]

A message from Shawarma Police

Hello, all. Please forgive the slightly more formal tone of this update – and forgive me for getting straight to the point (for once). Your local kebab shop needs you. And we’re offering to help in some small, but I hope significant way. Whilst there are many takeaways who will be set-up for business in […]

Yaya’s, Cardonald

Good evening! Today’s review will be totally phoned in, I’m afraid to report. Heads gone. Must be this corona virus, or something. I don’t wish to spoil anyone’s dinner or owt but, Christ. I feel like I’ve been run over by a tramp riding a cow. All things considered, probably not the best time to […]
