Kebab fat invades Poland

Kebab fat invades Poland

A medieval cobbled square in Poland that has survived invasions by the Nazis and Soviets is being destroyed – by kebab fat.

All Saints' Square in Krakow is being eaten away by fat drops from the favoured snack of thousands of visiting tourists, mostly Britons.

A clean-up failed to stop the kebab rot so engineers are now applying a varnish to protect the cobbles.

They should then need only normal cleaning, officials said.

Rubbish!

Re: Kebab fat invades Poland

I think all the years of acid rain has done far more damage than kebab fat. All those sculptures and friezes in the Old Town that have been slowly melting away for years are the result of bad environmental policy not kebabs.

Re: Kebab fat invades Poland

I don't know where all saints square is but they replaced all the cobbles in the main square a couple of years back.

Galloping Balderdash!

Where did that quote come from?

This appeared in the "weird" section of the Metro. The metro is a freebie newspaper handed out at tube stations in London. I think it has some sort of link to the evening standard or daily mail because sometimes exactly the same stories appear (word for word) in one or t'other.

Other articles in the same issue :

Somehow I don't think this article was meant to be taken too seriously...

Re: Kebab fat invades Poland

Phew! - my wife always tells me the worst kebab she has ever eaten was in Krakow ... bought by me. I was starting to feel guilty about destroying Wawel too.

Re: Kebab fat invades Poland

I can't face kebabs after someone told me how it's made. yuk

"Phew! - my wife always tells me the worst kebab she has ever eaten was in Krakow ... bought by me. I was starting to feel guilty about destroying Wawel too."

The worst kebab I ever had was in Gdańsk-Jelitkowo. Paradoxically the kebab stall had a sign saying 'Najlepszy kebab w mieście".

I haven't been able to face one though, since I read about that thing in Blackpool: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml;jsessionid=JWGCB5LPYR5CBQFIQMGCFF4AVCBQUIV0?xml=/news/2007/05/24/nkebab124.xml

"the kebab stall had a sign saying 'Najlepszy kebab w mieście"."

maybe it was the only one in town

I have found that in Poland you should never go by what they "recommend" in any restaurant. When you try to order they always start saying "Polecamy"...etc.... You have to be very careful because sometimes they pretend to have misunderstood and bring you the recommended dish anyway. Usually it's something that isn't selling very well.
