Istanbul Kebab House, Didcot, Oxfordshire (kpw* for Week 26)   2 comments

[*kpw = kebab per week for 2013, as noted in an earlier post and the 29th entry for the 2013 Challenge]

Halfway through the year, the one-per-week pace has been pretty steady with 3 extra kebabs sneaking in so far.  If I can finish the 50 Kebab Challenge before the winter drinking season sets in I may end the effort then, but so far it has been fairly interesting.

Today, I skipped food after breakfast and ran from Oxford with the intention of coming into Islip along about 6 miles of permissive footpaths in order to drop by a work-related BBQ for a few minutes of gorging.  Lost for bonus mileage on Otmoor after a wrong turn, I finally rolled into Islip in time for the late train and never made it to the cookout.  Damned hungry by the time I reached Didcot for the connecting train to Swindon, I broke the journey to break the fast at the Istanbul Kebab House about ½ km away.

The kebab was tangibly salty and dripping with juice that didn’t seem to be fat (nothing congealed on my fork, at least).  The veg was adequate–crisp and fresh but almost without flavour–and the pita was chewy and card-like.  The chilli sauce was the redeeming factor of this overpriced pile.
