    Nationalism should be present in all areas of life. That means not buying from immigrants to support their presence here. Besides, kebabs are shit.

    Speaking from experience here: You won't believe how well indigenous stuff still sells. I have a near-24-hour-bakery which opens at 2AM virtually around the corner and they do Stovies, Macaroni Cheese, Steak Pies, Sausage Rolls ... and all that the heart may desire. Whenever I head there after a drink, I find myself waiting in long queues to get my food --- and that even though it is well out of the way.

    It's not that it doesn't sell well - quite to the contrary: Just that for the most part, enterprising native people share the same mindset as you "It won't sell anyway" ... entirely forgetting that the British got by without kebabs for several hundred years of binge drinking before the ethnics came across from Asia in swarms.

    So - if you run a bakery or a chippy near to several bars: Hel, go for it and open at night-times. People will be dying for your steak pies and deep-fried king ribs, respectively. I for one would.

    Anyway, kebabs aren't really a big deal here, that I am aware of. Folks will cook them on the outdoor grill in the summertime but otherwise, they aren't very common to my knowledge. I can't even remember the last time I had one, actually.

    I don't know about anywhere else, but in Denmark, it seems that EVERY take-away is owned by Turks. Where I live now, there are about half a dozen (at least) pizza places and they are ALL Turkish. I was really annoyed when I first came here, as most of the pizzerias in Britain are usually genuine Italian, I assumed it would be the same here too. Being vegetarian, I can't (and wouldn't want to!) eat kebabs anyway. But I was pretty devastated to discover that the Turks seem to have some kind of monopoly over all the take-aways here in Denmark even places which I have tried which have signs saying 'genuine' or 'original Italian pizza', to my dismay,have also been hijacked by Turks...

    We always grill Burgers, sausages & ribs, when we cook out, never shish-kebabs.
    We don't have open food stands either.

    We do have all sorts of Ethnic restaurants, though. Chinese, Mexican, Mediterranean, Thai & such....... They are okay, maybe for lunch.
    The Chinese buffet is wholesome & cheap.....all you can eat.

    I generally go for a good steak, though, if I eat out, a filet, ribeye, or prime rib, when we can afford it.
    Mostly we eat at home, fried chicken, sausages, ham, burgers or roasts.
    I love to cook.
    Don't need no stinkin' Kebabs

    I enjoy Persian kebab and also Greek/Turkish style gyro.

    I have not tried too much Arabic or Turkish food. I have tried a good bit of Persian food. Some of the Persian food I tried seemed similar to the Eastern Mediterranean food I have tasted [i.e., Greek, Turkish, and Arabic], while some of it reminded me of Eastern European food.

    I have a deep respect for the Persian people and their culture. I look forward to the day when the Islamic Republic government disintegrates or is overthrown and the country of Iran returned to the Persian people.

    No Turks but plenty of Chinese people here. And no, I don't eat Chinese food, unless it's a cheap lunch or something.


    Personally I'm a fan of my local pub - hmm lamb burgers

    Gentlemen,

    Kababs, an interesting subject.
    Living down here in Texas, I had to look up 'Shish Kababs'
    in order to be sure what they were, 'meat cooked on a skewer'.
    I couldn't understand why anyone would 'be offended' by a Kabab,
    but it is the European way of eating out again.

    I have a good friend from Germany.
    From E-mailing back and forth for a year studying German,
    I realized that in Germany, a large percentage on the population,
    live in cities rather than in the country.
    They can walk everywhere not needing a car,
    and tend to eat out rather than cook at home.
    In Texas where I live 'everything' is 20 miles away
    and without a car one is stranded.
    And since the 50's, when I was born, the suburbs surrounding the city is where people live. Everyone has a little plot of land and a house.
    Rows and rows of little plots of land with houses on them take much more space than living in a city.
    And with so many people one has to live 40 miles from the city center. Then with high gasoline prices the problem compounds.

    Living in a city 'is coming back', as people are building lofts,
    or apartments in worn out old buildings right in the city itself to avoid all the driving.
    Now I hate the city and live on 25 acres outside of the populated area. But then I barely survived being murdered three times in the last 8 years, and got 'disablity' so that staying home all the time is financially possible,
    For 33 years I drove 30,000 miles a year in order to make a living.
    I lived in my pickup truck and just 'got by'.
    Now I drive only 2,000 miles a year and raise poultry,
    grow a big garden, make knives and brew beer.
    But back to Kebabs.

    A Kabab is meat cooked on a skewer.
    But it is not the meat cooked on a skewer,
    that some people here seem to find offensive
    but the ethnic folks who are cooking it.
    'Kabab stands' with Turks running them seem to be offensive to some Europeans.
    Down here in Texas and in Colorado too,
    some of the best pizza places are run by Syrians, or Iranians,
    {No Turks that I have noticed.}

    But I am a gourmet cook myself and meat cooked on a skewer,
    or a stick is just meat cooked on a stick.
    I can buy my own meat at a 'good grocery store' and maranate it
    and cook it on my own fire out back.
    A Kabab is just a Kabab.
    Some of those pictures of big, weird looking globs of meat
    with the guy shaving some off are 'really gross looking'
    and I wouldn't eat that sxxx,
    {no telling where that meats been}
    but to just cook your own,
    would be no problem.

    So when someone says 'do I like Kababs'?
    I would cook my own Kababs and they would look better than the pictures here. But not unless the meat is cut up too small to cook on a fire with falling through the grille.
    I would just call it a steak.


    Thank you

    Earlier I often ate Kebabs and I liked it. Take away the huge number of calories and you have a very healthy meal.
    But I stopped eating them ,because I don't want to support the Turks anymore, which is pretty hard because they taste extremely delicious and there is a Kebab shop right next to my shool. This guy sure makes a lot of money with my schoolmates.

    Hmm yes, it looks like they places their shop strategically.

    Here they're also near bus station, in the centre of the city... especially where there are no restaurants around, so it's the only food available in a block. At the universities luckily there is a own cafeteria and a bar where students can buy food and drink for themselves.
