Kebabs

ok... so, it has come to my attention that a board member has only recently found the beauty that is... the kebab...

it is absolutely true... they are at times wonderful...typically consumed at around 4am after the girl/guy you were talking to walked away because you where unable to be understood... many kebabs consumed at this time could be considered bad kebabs and there was actually a point in time where bad kebabs began to symbolise my social life... so much so that i named my air guitar rock band Bad Kebab... however, due to the taste buds being rendered useless by intoxication it matters little...

anyways, the two kebab houses i am about to share with you do not require an obscene level of intoxication to be enjoyed...

i would encourage everyone who knows where to find a top shelf kebab to share the whereabouts of such a kebab... don't keep your good luck to yourself... everybody has a right to a life involving top quality kebabs...

one rule: dont give me this half cut up pitta sh!t that has crap falling out the top of it... useless... don't be lazy, get the proper gear and roll that shit up... it's not even up for debate...

THIS IS A KEBAB

THIS IS NOT A KEBAB
http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm182/patma2003/notright.jpg

i had many kebabs previous to this, but i came across this particular kebab in 1996... it totally revolutionised they way i thought about kebabs... rolled up, compact, little spillage... a neat and tidy job and always a well balanced mix of garden vegtables and meat... try the chicken kebab, extra cheese, w/ hommus and garlic sauce... but doesnt matter what combo, as long as you order a kebab...

i was back in newcastle australia last year for my bro wedding, and on the morning of the wedding i made my way back there to see if it was still around... lo and behold.. it was... and wow... same great kebab action... i went ape shit inside for a while before containing myself and then ordering...

http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm182/patma2003/Newcastle-Kotara.jpghttp://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm182/patma2003/newcastle.jpg

last year, i also ran into a kebab house that matched the kebab i had in newcastle, australia...

i found it on the southern end of Plaza Nueva, Granada, Spain... just on the junction to Calle Elvira... go the doner/chicken mix and chooe any topping... again, well rolled... take this away or even eat it on the run...

do it!!

celebrate all time great kebabs by posting where we can find them...

because, deep down, when you search your feelings, you know as well as i do that the world needs a better quality kebab...

Ummm, after seeing the photo, are you sure you are not mistaking a shawarma (rolled) for a kebab?
Ate the best in my life from a street vendor in Aleppo (Syria), bet I'd never be able to find him again. Best things in life are always unique, it would seem.

Sweden is full of immigrated turks that have blessed us with kebab for quite some time. You'll find döner kebab either with bread or french fries everywhere in Sweden, no matter how small or big the place is. You will also find kebab pizza in every pizzeria worth mentioning. Kebab(döner) is as popular as pizza and burgers in Sweden.

Gyro is also damn good, but you won't find that at too many places in Sweden. I Love to eat it whenever I go to Greece, though.

A kebab can be served in many (6, actually) different ways with many different ingredients´! The "good" kebab is a kebabrulle, the "bad" one is a kebab med bröd.

There is also kebabtallrik (served with freedom fries), kebabpizza and kebablåda, which is like kebabtallrik but served in a take-away låda instead of on a tallrik.

And let's not forget kebabsallad, which is the healthy kebab choice!

I used to eat kebabs often, but I've got a problem with them, namely I love savory sauces, unfortunately in a place where I used to eat kebabs, a sauce is so savory that every time when I eat a kebab there, I've got a hiccup :)
I can't vary kebabs because I don't eat pork, beef and veal, so can afford myself only to eat with a chicken or a vegetarian one :p

we have plenty of gyros shops over here, but often they have only tzatziki sauce to put in besides the usual stuff, ketchup, mustard etc.

what they dont have is the chilly and garlic sauce combo I had in london, in a proper kebab restaurant. I call it 'gastro' sauce cause it touches just the right spot. mmmmmmm

This is the original doner which you can also get in Germany. But as you might know the normal doner here is with turkish bread.

There was an ice cream place across the street and both places were the only places open during the mid-afternoon as everyone else was enjoying their siesta. And the guy that owned it was really nice and I remember he sat down at my table and was very friendly and talked with us :)

In Iraq, kebab certainly means shish kebab (i.e. mince meat on a skewer and grilled) and not döner kebab, like this:

http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/2130/img46851.jpg

Commonly eaten with rice and other appetizers on the side like hommous and tabbouleh. But also eaten in sandwich form, of course.

Then there's lamb tikka kebab:

today I had a couple of pork chops for lunch. yeah I think fish will do it tonight. will go with sardines, some eggs, paprika...

this thread is good for that... i questioned my chicken curry tonight once i saw some of the new gear in here even though i had devoured the curry 90 minutes earlier... seriously questioned it... good menu you got going there btw mate...

I need to buy myself a kebab tomorrow. Great food. A kebab is about 1 euro here. Pretty cheap.

where the hell is that...? €1...? cant beat that value... i shelled out €5.50 for my one the other night... that's considered decent for here...

In GB kebabs vary a lot in price and quality - £2 - £5 sterling and anything from gourmet to fit only for poisoning the neighbour's dog.

I prefer mine without chips, just a bit of salad, but I have to say that the best ever was in Thessaloniki, just over 1 euro, served with no bread and a few chips in a cardboard container. I was staying in a 5 star hotel at the time, and I didn't eat my supper!

yeah... i know exactly where you mean... man, there used to be a world class burrito/quesadilla joint around in ranelagh, but it closed down 18 months back... the only one of those type of shops i know of a similar quality is La Salsa in Galway... smashing food...

anyways, i just smashed up, what could well turn out to be, the best kebab i have had in dublin... i found myself around at Iskenders on Dame St, mentioned earlier on in the thread... i would have paid a little bit more to sit down and have the plate, but i was parked illegally so had to run... really hearty and tasty doner meat... good filler, i had to take a breather half way thru... in the interim, i proceeded to psyche up and hammer the rest of it... i think i have found the benchmark so far...

Man oh man... delicious...

The skewered stuff generally done on the grill is usually called shish, originated from the Turks. It's big across the Arab world, 'Shish Taouk', pretty much excellent clean street food grilled chicken pieces, with alot of great garlic sauce called 'Toum'. Plenty of Lebanese/middle-eastern restaurants in London do this, all over Edgware Road. Then you have the chicken/lamb shawarmas, lots of chilli and garlic sauce. Place called Taza on Queensway, London, does some messy, greasy, but saucy, really well done shawarmas that are making me fucking drool thinking about it.

Persian cuisine using the similar grill, but different marinades, you have the joojeh chicken kebabs, or koobideh (minced meat lamb/beef) - usually served with lots of rice, grilled tomato and some butter.

http://www.streetdirectory.com/stock_images/travel/simg_show/11704295730984/1/kebab_and_chicken_koobideh_with_basmati_rice/

This hits the spot every fucking time. Good place called ALounak, in central London, near Bayswater. Great Persian food.

The Turks are really the best though, they do the shish, doner kebabs, grilled meats on their special charcoal grills. Stoke Newington, and Dalston - good Turkish areas on the outskirts of London, you'll find tremendous places.

London is full of kebab shops, all of differing quality, but there's always some place local, always close to a pub or bar.

Yes it is, although pizzas and burgers are the same price. Even 10-12 years ago when I started eating kebab the price for a döner in bread was ~€4 and with fries €4.5-5. But it should be noted that this isn't that expensive for us Swedes. If you go to a normal restaurant you will have to pay at least €30/person for just the main course and a glass of wine.

The persians are the originators of kebabs according to wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kebab). But there is one type of Persian Kebab missing from what you listed, and that's the "Barg" Kebab, aka the Filet Mignon Kebab:

http://pinchmysaffron.com/storage/DSC03783_2.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=12579992 16337

Can be hit or miss depending on the quality of the meat. A lot of times it's ordered with a joojeh or koobideh.

Here's another tribute to persian kebabs.

In France, there is a semantic war about this food.
One side called it kebab, the other side called it grec.
Only god knows which term will win.

n'est pas possible de cacher les liens entre cuisine turque et cuisine grecque :p

a month ago, a photo taken by me on a street corner opposite the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy

Arguably one of the greatest inventions out of Persia :D.

Though I have to say too much of it can take its toll on the stomach ;)

In London we walked past the same kebab van every day but never bought one. The guy's face was pouty as fuck.

Kebabs are like europe's burritos or tacos, both of which are much better than kebabs.

The best kebab I ever had was in Perugia Italy
