Fat Friar, Batheaston, Somerset (kpw* for Week 34)   2 comments

[*kpw = kebab per week for 2013, as noted in an earlier post and the 38th entry for the 2013 Challenge]

Next to the George and Dragon, conveniently, the Fat Friar offered kebabs which really seemed necessary 2/3 of the way through the day’s run.  As the first döner customer of the day, I needed to wait a few minutes but there were loads of photos of the town posted all over and dating back as much as 100 years…very entertaining.

The guy asked which sauce I wanted–mild, medium or hot.  Of course I said hot but he insisted I try it out first.  Great, snacks!  He brought out a plate with the two hottest sauces daubed on it and a few chips to dunk, then he winced when I covered a chip with the Habanero rich paste and popped it in my mouth.  It actually was hot, for Britain, but I’ve had much worse.  This had a domesticated by no means ‘tame’ Scotch Bonnet flavour and kick.  The other chilli sauce would have passed the taste test, too, but was fairly mild in comparison (but with a vinegar and citrus tang I really liked).  I asked for a 3 part hot, 1 part not so hot mixture and would recommend it highly.

Chips were excellent, too…fluffly, little excess oil.  Just grand.
