Today was a very relaxed and uneventful day for me. I got a chance to catch up on some school work, recover, and hangout in my room. At night, however, I wanted to get out and walk around. I was hungry but did not want to sit down and go through the hassle of waiting at a restaurant and like always, I wanted something at a low cost. The kebab stands, which are scattered throughout the street, fit right into my narrow qualifications. These stands are really unlike anything I have seen in the United States. They have such a variety of food ranging from but not limited too, green peppers, squid, chicken wings, pea pods, liver, and lamb meat. And they are all prepared in the best way possible, on the grill.The best part of the kebab stand is the prices. I got a pepper, pea pods, and chicken wings for 6 yuan. Although they are very low key, these kebab stands can be booming with business, as the one I went to was tonight. The owner will set up many little children sized tables and chairs, resembling a little restaurant. I would say there was about 20 people eating at the stand I went to tonight. I use the number of people eating at a stand as a sign of quality, assuming the locals have eaten at other stands in the area. Tonight I had a quick, easy, and tasty snack at a low price. These stands are particularly convenient when you are walking home from a bar. That being said, I will most likely make many more stops at this stand.
