So wrong, it has to be right: Jozi’s answer to Berlin’s Doener Kebap?

Land of Nams: living in Johannesburg, exploring the world, documenting the things I love

While I like to consider myself somebody who eats right and cooks nutritious meals, there are times when you’re hungover we all must eat delicious bites of heaven that are really bad for you. I’m sorry to let you know about this but you’ll thank me in the end. There is a magical place called Akahlwaya’s which has the best Food for Hungover People, namely a Polony and Chip Roll. Polony is some sort of sausage (it doesn’t have pork here since Akahl’s caters to a lot of Muslim Indians) and the reason I liken it to a doener- both meats that are made in a way that we would rather not know about. On a ¬†toasted roll, they put slices of polony, french fries, masala, chili sauce, ketchup and mayo and then toast the whole thing. I estimate it to be probably upwards of 1000 calories, but that’s neither here nor there- head to Akahlwaya’s next time you are having a bad day (Or your period. Which I guess is the same thing. TMI. Sorry.).
