At this point it would be totally inappropriate to not dedicate an entire blog to Best Kebab. Unlike every other food joint in Glasgow it remains open 24/7, and the radio is always blasting, so its been known to become a mini dance party at 3 am (including drunks who decided to dance on the tables...the radio got turned off until they left) Located on cathedral street just outside of Queen street rail station, don't let its not so classy looks fool you...OK it's not classy in anyway, but the chips and cheese (2 pounds) are to die for... especially when fellow students try to cross the Glasgow streets to get there when they are drunk. Best Kebab Chips and Cheese is the ultimate drunk food (I haven't been drunk, but its what I have been told...and it is very good). Basically, its hot french fries covered with cheese in a box (half the trick is waiting for the cheese to melt and the other half is stirring the cheese in so you get some on every fry).The only problem is the next morning and waking up because it sits like a brick in ones stomach. I'm pretty sure that Best kebab has found a niche' market catering to drunks who easily part with their money for super unhealthy but awesome food. Best Kebab is willing to put up with the clientele and I'm sure they are very profitable. Oh side note! I'm also pretty sure that Best Kebab is a front for the Glasgow Iranian mob (which may or may not exist)...I have no proof of this, but it seems like the right sort of place to launder money.
We went to best Kebab after prom the other night. That's right, two of the flats above mine (13c and d) decided to throw a prom. This was Julian's Idea...he wanted "crappy American prom music" and we gave it to him...I'm not sure he appreciated it. I actually dressed up and made a prom playlist which went over pretty well with everyone else. Morgan (fellow American) and I got almost everyone to awkward prom dance to Howie Day's "collide" and I taught everyone the cupid shuffle(It's a simple line dance for those who don't know). The event included a tin foil arch and lots of balloons and overall might have been the best prom I have attended. Anyway, all of this post is to say that Best Kebab is amazing.
