Darren and Lia were treated to a Mniam Mniam feast that made them continuously say 'Mniam Mniam' (yum yum)! They sampled the Souvlaki Greek Style Kebab (Lia's favourite), filled with shawarma and chips wrapped in a Naan bread served with tomato, red onion, mixed herbs and finished with Mniam Mniam's signature homemade Tzatziki sauce. The Berlin Dog was a real show stopper, at 20 inches long this sausage in a baguette with ample grilled onions and pickles was a feast for the eyes as well as our tummies (this was Darren's fave). The Drivetime team also enjoyed a Caprese roasted baguette, with green pesto base, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, and the Bad Boy baguette, with chicken shawarma, grilled sliced sausage, bacon, salami and mozzarella. As if that wasn't enough food for our dynamic duo they also had the opportunity to sample the Mniam Mniam Wrap, shawarma served with griled mushrooms, onion, chips and breaded deep fried cheese and American Style Wrap, Shawarma served with chips, grilled peppers and breaded deep fried cheese. To wash it all down they sampled all of the delicious and diverse sauces and their Kapsalon Dutch Style Kebab with fresh mixed salad.
