Isn't it basically souvlaki though that the Greeks invented?

God, you Euro-twits are dumb. Buying donner kebabs from goddamn turks instead of buying gyros from butt fucking Greeks.

i prefer gyros.

best of all are the middle eastern shwarmas.

Shwarma is good though it is clearly a rip off of gyros. Still good ideas travel well and gyros are a good idea.

I prefer Lahmacun and other stuffed or topped Pide variants.

what are your feelings on fermented herring? is it actually nice or is it something only mad people eat?

It's actually nice.

None of my friends or family eat it so I was really scared of trying it, plus of course it stinks to high hell with a smell that lingers and never goes away. But I had some last year and I think it might be one of the nicest Swedish delicacies I've tried. I started off with lots of potatoes and white bread and onion like you're supposed to eat it, but by the end of the night I was gulping them down as they were.

The texture can be a bit icky for some (it's kinda gooey) but the flavour is a lovely, subtle, complex seafood flavour with some sting to it. Supposedly it also has aphrodisiac properties.

it sounds utterly dreadful, but then so do blue cheese or thai fish sauce if you aren't used to them.

i'd like to give it a go one day.

Come on tour to Sweden and we'll have some at my house. (I don't think they'd let you take a can into the hotel.)

It tastes so bad the only way to get rid of the taste is to gargle with Scabby's spunk.

Your doner kabobs are killing you, says the BBC.

It seem that donner kebab is a Turkish/Islamic plot to kill Britain.

they put far too much "meat" in donner kebabs. a little meat, plenty of lemon juice, salad, chilli sauce. yeah. great stuff.

haven't had one for a while though.

Oh yes, and if you think you can avoid certain death by deploying the old "no, I'll just have a small doner thanks mate I'm watching me waistline" trick, think again, because the study found "little difference between small and large kebab weight"

Dammit! In that case I'm getting small kebabs all the way - better value for money :D
