British kebab awards reveal Britain's best kebabs

Order from Twisted London now!

As anyone who has ever ventured out in a British town after dark knows, this country loves a kebab. The only thing better than getting battered in a terrible club is washing the experience away with a warm baton of cheap pitta and assorted meat shavings. When it comes to drunk dining, the kebab is king. 

However, while they happen to make excellent alcohol sponges, Britsh kebabs can also be totally delicious. If your understanding of kebabs is limited to gristly slivers of doner, you need to get out more. Whatever your prefered approach to barbecuing, proper kebabs can stand up against the best of them.

It’s only fitting, then, that these magnificent meat mountains are given their moment in the sun. In order to honour the great and the good of the industry, the annual British Kebab Award has this week unveiled its selections for 2020. If you want to taste something that will make you forget all about Saturday night’s greasy mixed tikka roll, you’re in luck. Without further ado, here is the complete list of winners.
