[*kpw = kebab per week for 2013, as noted in an earlier post and the 54th entry for the 2013 Challenge]

Across from the Royal Oak on Woodstock Road I was lucky enough to find Ali’s Kebab Van (the link leads to an article about Ali’s relationship with an Oxford college that is quite droll).  It is easily the smallest of the vans I have yet tried and the one with the most retro look.  Friendly guys and very good food although the older fellow forgot the vinegar on the chips (which were, nonetheless, sublime — fluffy within and crisp and sweet on the surfaces).  The chilli sauce cleared my sinuses obstructed by the cold and the pub, the meat was moist but not oily and tasted of proper lamb.  One of the best near the lab.
