Agree.

Many a hole filled at midnight to 6.00am to soak up the juice !

1000 kebab houses in Berlin, think I've done them all at least twice.

I may be very strange but I have never eaten a kebab after a night out!

Shoarma or Gyros Brotchen, my time in Germany these were the kebab equivalent of the Holy grail :ok:

I'm a Durum Doner guy myself, I could take you to the best place in Berlin.

Yeah well ...... oh you mean as in food!
When I'm peckish after a night out I usually have a beer and some cheese or bacon on toast when I get home. If I'm staying in a hotel I usually get something from room service.

"and some cheese or bacon on toast when I get home."

Nice :ok:

I like Bacon the next morning !!! :O but wouldn't say no to some in whatever it is I eat the night before.

SFFP,

Clearly, a lamentable lack of culinary taste on your part regarding Germany and the local cuisine !........;) :E

However, since the deceased is now deceased, and given the location, Berlin, can we now expect a memorial...other than the 1000 outlets in the wonderful City that is, or even a more fitting tribute....such as this...

Home: Deutsches Currywurst Museum Berlin (http://www.currywurstmuseum.de/en/)

One duly paid a visit during ones recent visit, a homage in fact, to a dish one holds in reverence. :p

Not being a fan of kebabs, one can only assume your tastes, or lack of ! were cultivated by the proximity to the main gate at Odious in the car park I recall, from a passing visit, of a van making a small fortune each night.

Mutton bunnies or a whole roast chook was the usual fare for the ride home after a night out, back when one still had the capability for that level of debauchery.

Mutton curry in a hollowed out half loaf of white bread.

Ah yes, I remember it now, was discussed a month or two back when
we were discussing food in another thread.

I reckon that would fill you up and help sober you up at the same time !!!

Conversation in pub with mate, bit back:-

Me "You know I think I must be sickening for something"
He "Why, what's wrong"
Me, showing half-full pint glass, "I've only had that to drink but I really fancy a kebab"

I have never eaten a kebab, nor for that matter, a Mc Donalds or the profferings of pizza hut, etc.
My son and his wife insisted on a "treat" to a Frankie and Benny's establishment....I was embarassed to spend their money on mediocre, grossly overpriced food. Used to operate a fish and chip shop opposite a Kebab house...when I refused the offer of one of their "delicacies"on the basis I knew what quality of floor-sweepings, gristle and unmentionables one could buy in an "elephant's leg" at a price that made dog-food seem like Caviar prices.....he laughed and said "you're alright with a Shish Kebab, that's proper chunks of REAL meat on a skewer".....still declined on the basis i didn't know the provenance of the "real meat"....... Eventually sold the shop to him as he needed bigger premises.

Only had a kebab once and didn't finish it as i thought it tasted awful, stank a bit too. Fish and Chips was the local delicacy on the way home from the pub in my day.Nowadays people seem to find time to eat in the pub instead of drinking..

"and didn't finish it as i thought it tasted awful, stank a bit too."

I reckon you got one with the "compressed meat" or as I think someone described it as looking like an elephants leg (when cooking).

If so, I agree that this doesn't taste or smell too good.

If you have a Kebab, it has to be real meat cut off the cooking block.
Must nicer.

500.. You are right, it was a compressed job.I thought that they were all like that..Coming to Oz at the end of the year so i will get Oz daughter to take me out for a proper one..

I thought so. I didn't eat the one I had when they gave me the wrong meat
and I normally eat anything.


Which part of Aus are you coming to ? Melbourne ?

We have plenty of them here, some better than others.

Lygon St, Carlton is a must if you come to Melbourne for good food.

500.. Yes Melbourne, for about three months..Apart from a couple of weeks cos Mrs 1DC wants to drive out to Coober Pedy!! Don't ask. I think she wants to find an Opal:ouch::ouch:

Nothing wrong with Cooper Pedy, once !!!

Seriously, it is one of the few places to see Opal mining in the raw, warts and all !!!

I think it has "touristed up" a bit since I was there 30 years ago.

You will certainly see a fair bit of the "outback" driving there and
if you take one route out (ie via Adelaide) and another route back
(like via Mildura, Swan Hill), you will see some good areas.

Send me a PM when you get here !

500. OK. We quite like the outback..

Was in Coober Pedy last year, and it was better than I expected. But yes, you only need to go there once, and a day or two is plenty.

There's a lot of space between Melbourne & there. Do your research and there are plenty of things to see & do, otherwise it will be a long, long trip.

At least he likes the outback !

That at least means he will enjoy looking at the scenery, kangaroos, kangaroos, kangaroos !!!

My GF is from NZ, doesn't like Brown / Red, prefers greens so
long trips in the bush are not for her :O

Roads are of course a lot better now than 30 years ago.
