Falafel, Manchester

How do. Back once again with the renegade master, and this time around Shawarma Police have travelled some considerable distance with their D4 damager to report on some severely ill behaviour in the world of kebab – a mere 400 mile round trip to get some lunch to Manchester and back. “BUT WHY? YOU CAN […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Döner Haus, Sunderland

Alreet. I can’t place *exactly* where I was, but it must have been somewhere between Alnmouth (for Alnwick) and Newcastle (for Newcastle) when I had not one, but two epiphanies:  firstly, that travelling 130-odd miles for a kebab was immensely tragic, and secondly, isn’t 35 a bit young to be having a mid-life crisis in […]

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 […]

Lotus, Whiteinch, and Grillicious, Thornwood

“You review kebabs??” “Yes.” “What, REALLY???” This was an actual conversation that I had at work the other day. We were discussing the merits of Shawarma King (very good, recommended was my view), only to be challenged on the legitimacy of this view, because “it sounds like they only sell Shawarma”. I pointed my colleague […]

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 […]
