Kebab takeaway for delivery or collection

“Slow cooking” is a trendy phrase that you might’ve heard or seen on countless cooking shows, menus and cookbooks. But makers of the humble kebab have been slow cooking long before Nigella and Jamie have been singing its praises.

Take some succulent meat, slowly and meticulously braise it for hours, wrap it in freshly baked naan bread, surround it in complementary vegetables and lace it generously with the right sauce, and you’ve got a perfect kebab.

Like its frequent rival, the curry, kebabs are deceptively varied. They’re a hit with vegetarians, meat-lovers and those who are feeling ravenous on a night out. By the same token, they can be quite the delicacy, with kebabs making appearances in some of the most indulgent takeaways or fine restaurants in the country.

Depending on what you order, you could be sliding the meat and veg from a skewer, or negotiating a hefty, bready meal. You can have it served on a tray, with rice, or with chips. And, just as kebab shop owners were slow-cooking before it was chic, they’re also the pioneers of “fusion”, making kebabs available with chips, curry sauce or a taste of barbecue.

The Irish keep a special place in their hearts for the mighty kebab. No matter when you’re reading this text, there’s probably someone in the country right now tucking into a doner.
