Falafel House, Oxford (bonus kebab in the Challenge)   2 comments

I still plan to do the weekly kebab for the 2013 Challenge, but I was famished on my way home (last meal was a bowl of cereal at 4:30 in the morning) and stopped by the Falafel House and, having never tried their kebabs before (the place next door is my favourite in Oxford) decided to give it a go.

While hot, the meat stayed tender and moist and the chilli sauce was rich with coriander leaf and was almost a hot salsa.  The vinegar on the chips was especially sharp and tangy, and the onions, cabbage, lettuce, and tomatoes had flecks of coriander in it as well.

The temperature out has been hovering just below freezing and the meat soon cooled, but here was another nice surprise: instead of fat congealing on the döner, it just went sort of dry and chewy like some wonderfully spiced and still fairly tender jerky.  Falafel House is now on my shortlist of Best Kebabs in Oxford.
