It’s been a while since I’ve had a kebab from Footscray – more than a year, in fact. I’d been hankering for one all week so Adam and I trained it to Footscray this afternoon to have a late lunch at our favourite kebab joint, Footscray Best Kebab House. Its name might not reek much of originality but it does speak the truth: they really are the best kebabs in Footscray, if not Melbourne. The constant stream of customers coming in, the fact that they usually run out of meat at 3pm, the fact that my mates from St Albans come all the way here just for the kebabs and the fact that even fobs now visit this joint are all testaments to that.

The prices might have increased since my last visit but they’re still very reasonable. While most people come here for kebabs that they could eat on the run, I love to order their ‘meal of the day’ plates which will set you back $12 for a small, and $14 for a large. I used to be able to eat a small plate (which isn’t really small at all) without any problems but today I struggled. My advice is to share a large one between two people (though if the two of you have smaller stomachs, sharing a small plate would be fine too).

My small ‘meal of the day’ – lamb + two dips (I chose hummus and eggplant) + salad + warm Turkish bread. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

The best hummus dip I’ve ever tasted too…

I received my Stuart Weitzman heels today! Thanks Jen, for shipping them off for me. I saved about $100 buying them from the states (includes sales tax and shipping) compared to what I would have spent if I bought them at David Jones. Love.

All good, except for the unexpected toe cleavage. Hate!
I eat too much.

    @DivisionSix6 – Still haven’t seen that movie :(I’m eying the souvlaki in the book. It’s the best souvlaki EVER so I am happy to see it featured in the book.@peach_water – How was the movie?@chaoness – Yeah. For some reason, Craig gets all these random newbies to teach the Friday afternoon classes which annoys me to no end. There will be one week of Craig, followed by about 4-5 consecutive weeks of different newbies. Far out. Last week, some guy called Nicco was teaching according to the board but I dunno what he’s like. On the upside, less Fenny. Yay.
