maybe there's a gap in the market

I can picture a kebab van parked opposite Hilton in JBR doing a roaring trade

Street Van? what is that? Like an ice cream van? Which kind of area did you come from?
I have property in the UK and have never seen anything like that.

Haha - they are outside clubs etc... Stick Out Tongue

Have never had a UK one and never would..my kids are horrified at the price of them in the UK compared to here, never mind the taste.

I suppose it is all about inverse cultural adaptation! eg in the UK I know of a "Falafel Van" that sits outside an area with a Next, Halfords , etc - one of those out of town shopping areas. Big Grin

Ick at doner! No matter how late a night it was I could never get myself to like it

Now a chip naan with vinegar and ketchup on the other hand - eaten at 3am on a park bench in the freezing cold....pure food heaven!

We used to go straight into the bakery to get fresh made pies in Dundee early in the morning! Stick Out Tongue Those were the days - all that bad eating and drinking and weighed 7 and a half stone!

I second you there spongemonkey. I remember many a night coming home from Dundee Uni Union and stopping at the 24 hour bakery for pies, bacon and egg rolls and milk. Couldn't even tell you where it is now or if it is still open. The best cure all for a night out

Ewww!

Although in your defence during a family holiday in Cornwall a few years ago, DH was asking some locals whether there was a kebab van anywhere nearby - and they all seemed confused

we tried it...not bad, not bad at all!!!
:-)

slight suspicion that the meat was mutton rather than lamb. but the strong meat flavour was nicely countered by lashings of chilli sauce

Plenty of vans around Manchester serving the finest Kebabs after a night out yum how i miss kebabs if you are in Manchester and looking for a super decent kebab try TopKapi on Deansgate my mouth is watering thinking about it

We also tried the one in Discovery Gardens it was ok.

For chiken kebabs the best place is by the york hotel on the corner near Burjuman it looks rough and ready and is always full of workers etc, but its the best chicken kebab i have had always have one after a night out in that area

I haven't either! My husband loves them but I really think they smell horrendous. Having said that I am by no means a health freak, I very much miss scoffing a pizza or a chicken kebab after a night out! The only option we have these days is to stop by the Fish & Chip Room on the way home for fish, chips and baked beans, mmmmmm.
