It is the most amazing thing I have ever eaten, and I have always liked kebabs but this was on another level - and it was only 2 euros!!! I cannot understand why there are so many kebab shops in Australia but I have never seen these before. Shanah agrees, although she may not be as enthusiastic about it as me. On our second day we started with a hearty ...
