A kebab van in Gloucester was a popular destination for those across the city craving a meat fix.
Adem ‘Oscar’ Dindar, 43, who owns Oscar’s Grill Kebab Shop in Olympus Park, Quedgeley, serves up traditional Turkish recipes which he has been developing since he was 16-years-old.
“Business is a little bit down,” he admits since lockdown hit. “We get about 30 or 40 people buying kebabs a day, sometimes more and sometimes less.”
The Turkish man, who has lived in the UK for 15 years, mans the kebab counter with one helper.
Mr Dindar said: “Some people travel six miles and seven miles to come here because they like the kebabs. I use first class meat and first class chicken.
“I buy in fresh chicken, I make the marinade sauce myself.”
Mr Dindar has been making kebabs since he was 16, he said: ” I did not continue going to school. My father and mother did not have much money.
“I left school and I went to work.”
The 43-year-old moved to Gloucester six years ago and is raising two children with his wife in the city.
