After a hard day of poetry, community empowering photo projects and cake, I finally had to leave the glorious confines of Dundee. My sadness found amelioration in Istanbul, a little kebab shop on the way to the station.

I was clear on my requirement, which was food to be delivered quickly so I could make my train. A small doner sounded like the way to go to achieve this and so it proved.

As the counter folks went about assembling the item (garlic sauce, not chilli sauce; yes to all salads), a monster portion of doner meat was heaped into a routine looking pitta.

With a fiver handed over, I was soon on my way. I split consumption between salad topping (munched on the platform) and meat eating (munched on the train), as transport dictated.

It turned out to be an above average kebab, with the doner meat particularly good. The salad, sauce and pitta were pretty ordinary, but the meat was undoubtedly tasty.

So overall, Istanbul did the job very admirably. It hit the spot with good accuracy and brought to a splendid conclusion what had been a highly enjoyable day.
