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 […]

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.

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.

Pizza Punks, Glasgow

Hi! The more observant of you, dear readers, will have noticed something unusual about this review, and that’s no mean feat, considering we are less than 50 words in. The word “pizza” appears in the title. Pizza? On a blog, ostensibly about grilled meat? What’s that all about? Well, guess what. I am an adult. […]

Havet, Bromley

Oi oi. I was on holiday recently. Well, I say a holiday, more of a city break. Well, I say a city break… more of a… I went to Bromley. “But why would you want to do that?” Good question. Partly homesickness (I grew up in nearby Sydenham and I try to visit at least once a […]

Botan, Liverpool

Right! Time to skip the usual introductory pissing about, because with this kebab the picture really does tell the whole story: Look at that. I mean, look at it. For the interests of fairness, yes, there is a filter on the photo, however it doesn’t mean that this is unauthentic – I just needed to […]
