Shawarmarama, Platform @ The Arches, Glasgow

Hi hi hi hi hi, hi. Once upon a time there was a nightclub. This nightclub lived below a mainline railway station, and had many adventures. Then, one day, the Police got involved and said “Excuse me, Mr Nightclub, but you can’t have any adventures any more”, and shortly afterwards it shut down. This made […]

Braw Falafel.2.Go, Glasgow

Word. As I sit here idly thumbing this in on my phone, one thought races through my mind: “if it’s been signed for, how the fuck can it be lost?” Forgive the profanity, but I’ve just been chasing up an eBay order at Argos. A big fan of their click and collect service normally, but […]

Döner Haus, Glasgow

Hello once again dear reader. How are you doing? Not a rhetorical question by the way, feel free to leave your answers in the comments. Me? I’m just dandy, thanks for asking. Now, late last year I posted a short piece about this place having eaten there the night before opening, but was short on […]

Mezza, Glasgow

So, you wait ages for a kebab review, and then one comes along at once! Sorry about the lack of updates of late, dear reader. This has been partly due to the fact that I have been super busy doing other stuff, and partly because I’ve not really had any inspiration of late. Blogging, it […]

Fino Pitta – Nando’s, Glasgow

In the months I’ve been doing this blog, I have welcomed suggestions for places to go and visit – and they’ve all been fairly good, albeit with some odd ones thrown into the mix. One such suggestion was this one: “Ooh, there’s a good place in Giffnock”, a work colleague said. I was intrigued. “What’s […]

Aroos Beirut, Whitley Bay

Why aye. Back last month when I hot footed it down to Sunderland to go to Doner Haus, I didn’t stop there. OH NO. One simply does not go to the North East of England to have only one kebab. Not when beer has been had, and one is in possession of an all-day Metro […]

Christmas Wraps… with The Waitresses*

*as told to Will from Shawarma Police Hey buddy! What’s going on, huh? We’re the Waitresses from Ohio, U.S.A! You might remember us from such songs as “Christmas Wrapping”, and other ones we did! When we’re not touring and recording great new albums (i.e. everything we’ve done since we split up in 1984), we like […]

Vote Vote Vote!

Now, whilst this site remains a strictly grilled meat stuffed in bread with salad and sauce affair, we do maintain a respect for those who prefer their meat fried, covered in spiced gravy, and served with rice. Namely “Hector” of, who is a big fan of the stuff. Hector, (not his real name), would like […]

Preview: Döner Haus, Glasgow

Hello hello hello hello hello. The last time we figuratively spoke, I went to Sunderland to eat a kebab. Whilst this was a worthwhile experience (see Döner Haus Sunderland), it’s not something I could do on a regular basis – it takes time, money, commitment, and above all, a big lack of something better to do […]
