I recently discovered a facebook group which is is full of foodies who post reviews and pictures of their takeaways and meals out. I've been able to find some lovely hidden gems and we have tried a few new places but one place stood out by a mile!
Forget your 5 star dining and caviar. This is a good old kebab, yes kebab. The north easts favourite!
Lots of people won't even try a kebab because of the ingredients, who even knows the ingredients? All I know is they are tasty and have way too many calories!
Since joining this group I kept seeing review after review for a takeaway about 10 miles away from us in the sunny area of South Shields. South Shields have hundreds of takeaways catering for all tastes and is best known for fish and chips on the seafront with lashings of salt and vinegar followed by a dip in the sea and some fun on the 2p machines. Ahh childhood memories!
Anyway, back to the bab!
The takeaway is called Chaska Grill Da and their menu is enormous! They do everything from burgers, pizza, chicken, kebabs, rice, deserts and a big long list of kebabs!
Most popular being the Zakbab. (The owner is called Zak hence the name)
We order the mixed chicken Zakbab, you can choose to have this served with pitta bread or naan bread. It comes in a pizza box (too big for a carton hehe) and it's the bestest biggest kebab ever, no joke!
Your bread is the base, a generous portion of donner meat is piled on top followed by big chunks of juicy chicken and chicken tikka portions, peppers and onions, you can opt for salad or chips and choose 2 sauces. We usually get ours with salad and garlic sauce then order a side portion of peri peri chips, they are gorgeous!
The meat is marinated in chef's special spicy sauce and you can opt for how hot/mild you would like the sauce. It's big enough for 2-3 people but we still insist on ordering chocolate fudge cake for afters which always fresh and moist. Not too sweet either.
We are always so full and satisfied after our takeaway and the staff are so friendly. I order online using Just-Eat and then go and collect as they don't deliver to our postcode. Our order is always ready on time and is still piping hot when we arrive home to tuck in.
Next we are going to try their pizza's as they look equally delicious but for now we are Zakbab addicts!
If you're ever in the local area and get the chance to try it please do, you will not be disappointed!
It's often hard to find a decent takeaway especially if you're fussy like me. I've made countless complaints regarding cold food, missing items, bad presentation, swimming with grease, bad customer service, long waiting times, hairs in food and generally just an awful meal but we're super happy at Chaska and are loyal customers for the foreseeable.
