Lazord, Glasgow

Oi Oi! Before we get going on today’s excellent “content”, let’s delve into the Shawarma Police fan mail, shall we? “Dear Shawarma Police, I don’t think you’re a real policeman, and it’s only a matter of time before you’re exposed as a FRAUD and a PHONEY. Yours faithfully, Reginald Hollis” Well Reginald, that was insightful. […]

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 […]

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 […]

German Doner Kebab, Croydon

“What the hell, guy” Sorry, what? “First you do a music review with a contrived bit at the end to make it look vaguely food related, then, for a supposed “Glasgow” blog, you go and review somewhere I’m never gonna go about 430 miles away????” Oh, yeah, sorry about that. Except: I’m not sorry at […]

Brunch at ‘Babs – Glasgow

  Ahoy hoy. So, I decided to go back to ‘Babs. If you want to read what I wrote about it the last time, it’s over here! The tl;dr of my first visit can be summed up as follows: kebab – small, alright but not mind blowing cup of tea – mind blowingly small And […]

Best Kebab, Dundas Street

In all honesty, this is going to be a swift review.  They’re not very good. Which is a shame. They tick all the right boxes, they open late, they have a big glowing sign, they have decent seating, but then they also sell this: This, ladies and gentlemen, is a doner kebab. Let’s start with […]

Cafe India, Great Western Road

Hello, “dudes”. Today we go back to where it all began. You see, I wasn’t always a “kebab muncher”. In fact, there was once a time when I didn’t even eat meat. *record scratch* Yeah, you read that right. From about 16-ish to when I was 19-and-a-bit, I eschewed meat. I can’t remember exactly what […]

Morello, Great Western Road, Glasgow

Recently, on my Facebook page, I was asked the question “what is the best kebab shop in the West End?” – and I couldn’t answer that. Truth is, it’s been years since I spent any serious amount of time in the West End, and so much has changed. Trump is now President of the United […]

Shawarma King, Glasgow

(Photo nicked off of their facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Shawarma-King-977365035616411/) Yesterday, I went to a music festival. I had never been to one before, and with the exception of a brief teenage desire to go to the Reading Festival in the late nineties, had never really any desire to go to one. My logic was always thus: […]
