As you probably all know, I’m fond of a feed, especially of the fast-food variety. Burgers, pizzas, fish and chips and an old favourite, a lamb doner. If it’s unhealthy, it’s on my list.
Most often when I’m out and feeding my face I’ll order a few dishes. Sometimes that can be two main meals, other times I’ll opt for one main and a couple of sides. It is what it is, just like my bulging waistline.
So when I nipped into PJ O’Brien’s in Phra Khanong the other week I was ecstatic to hear the chef behind one of my favourite curry sauces in Bangkok was in the kitchen on the tools. Winner.
The problem was I fancied a kebab and a lamb manky doesn’t really go with curry sauce, or so I thought.
I’ve eaten the lamb doners from other bars in the same group, O’Shea’s etc, so I knew what I was in for there and remembered an extra portion of chips are needed – for me anyway.
Make that curry sauce and chips times two, if you don’t mind.
I was starving and nobody else was eating so I got stuck right into the lot. My hands and mouth were doing overtime and before I knew what I was even doing myself, there I was dipping the kebab in the curry sauce.
Damn, what a combo.
Why I’ve never tried this before I’ll never know but I tell you, it’s a match made in heaven.
Now normally you’d pour the sauce that comes with the kebab all over it but that’s something I always skip and much prefer to dip as I go.
Just to be clear here that I wasn’t mixing chilli sauce with chippy style curry sauce.
But a lamb doner dipped in curry sauce – that right there is a winner my friends and something you need to try at least once.
You’ll thank me later.
Note, this is not a sponsored post. However, for transparency, it should be noted that I did NOT pay for my food and drinks. My tab was covered by the owner whom I’d been socialising with prior to visiting his bar. With that said, there was no expectation for anything in return, including this post.

Is Air Fried Food Really Healthier?
Up to 90% less fat. That’s just one of the claims of air fryer manufacturers. We’ve bought so much into this idea of a healthier way of cooking, that the air fryer market is expected to reach US$1.2b by 2026.
But how much healthier is air frying, compared to deep frying, really? Talking Point host Sharda Harrison conducts her own tests in search of answers.
