TIL about the “Kapsalon” – a Dutch dish named after a hairdresser consisting of a layer of fries in a disposable metal tray, topped with gyro meat, covered with slices of Gouda cheese, a layer of lettuce, garlic sauce and hot sauce.

  1. Extra info: a hairdresser (from a barbershop = kapsalon) had but short breaks and asked the kebab store to just chuck it in a tray and reheat what was on hand so he could easily take it and eat it. At some point other customers said ‘gimme what he’ s having’. And kapsalon was born.

  2. This is brilliant. As someone who grew up in the area, seeing this gain international recognition makes me beyond proud of this absolute abomination!!

  3. In Australia these are often called Halal Snack Packs. Unless you happen to have red hair and run a fish and chips shop in Queensland, in which case you pretend they don’t exist.
