Alltomkebab.se was set up by five young men who all work in IT and "eat a kebab at least once a week". No questioning their credentials, then.
Aanyway, according to Tuesday's Svenska Dagbladet, their website features such treasures as a game called "Kebab defender" and chat forums (no doubt soon to be filled with 'kebabble') - as well as "The Kebab Shop" where you can buy t-shirts and other "souvenirs" to do with the "Middle Eastern version of a hamburger".
There are reviews and fact files about different kebab shops in the Stockholm region. In the kebabsters' expert opinion a good kebab consists of soft and freshly carved meat, a red and a white sauce with meat and vegetables mixed "in harmony" plus a topping of the traditional Feferoni. Kebabs made from microwaved meat and bread other than the traditional pitta gets immediately downrated.
The lads' verdict is that you're more likely to find a decent kebab out in the suburbs than in the centre of the city - and they say there is no such thing as "bad hygiene" in Swedish kebab parlours.
"Nobody in our company has ever been sick from a bad kebab," said Ted Lindholm, one of the men behind the project. "The only thing that will make you sick is if you eat too much."
