We tried to take down Southampton’s biggest kebab
It was the size of my face.
Recently local favourite Sula’s added its biggest kebab, the Mighty Gyro to the menu.
For £10 you’ll pick up two pittas, peppers, red onions, tomato, feta, halloumi, pork, chicken, chips and a bratwurst-looking Greek sausage.
To be honest, it’s pretty good. Look at it:
The attractiveness levels, of us and the kebab, slowly dropped as the filthy sandwich began to unravel.
By the half way stage, it had begun to look like something you’d clean out of the sink after your mates 21st.
It wasn’t really the size of the thing that was getting us down but the fact that is was predominantly carbs. The pitta bread especially was hard to get through. This was as far as another one of us went.
This was the closest one of us came to finishing it off- nobody else could successfully traverse the pitta bread.
Being honest with ourselves, it was a poor effort. The ‘Mighty Gyro’ definitely isn’t up there with the likes of the Bar Three Braveheart Challenge, or the Orange Rooms Burger Challenge. We were just weak.
Returning, defeated and disheartened to my house, I was asked: “Is it nice, though?”
And actually, yes. It is. Go try it.
