Norfolk Kebab Restaurants and Takeaways
Published date: March 2019
The kebab is thought to have originated in the Middle East and is pieces of meat or vegetables often grilled on a long thin stick, or slices of grilled meat, or minced meat, mostly served in pitta bread. There are differing recipes and cooking methods that vary from country to country, but one thing that never changes is its popularity.
Kebabs are enjoyed around the world and Britain is particularly partial to a doner kebab, in fact an estimated 1.3 million of them are sold each day in Britain, by 20,000 takeaway restaurants. Probably a large percentage of these are bought after midnight by those who have consumed a bit too much alcohol, however, should kebabs be held in higher regard? A shish kebab, whole cuts of meat or fish that are usually grilled on a skewer are considerably more nutritious than your average fatty, doner kebab and can make a very tasty meal. There are numerous varieties of kebabs including kofte, shawarma, adana, iskender, gyros and urfa and some fine examples can be sampled in many of Norfolk’s towns and villages and of course in Norwich’s city centre.
