Whats happened to KDK?
I rolled down there on Saturday noon with a mean hunger on, drooling for a doner kebab. Ive been there many times in the past and haven't found a better kebab anywhere. Greeted by the sight of a fully deployed steel roller door, I was instantly inundated by a tsunami of despair. No note on the door, or any information for the hapless, would-be punters, and regular feeders like myself. So, head in hands and duly cursing the gods, I slinked (slunk?) away downcast and resolved to return for my fix.
Sunday noon, with that same mean hunger on, only compounded by the events of the previous day, and tinged with a palpable and lingering sense of fear and foreboding, I once again rolled down the main street....past the RenRenLe.....and....past all those silly little cake shops that sell silly little cakes......and.... where the KDK should have been with its doors flung open, lights blazing, and at the altar of meat a large moist stack of animal flesh languidly revolving past the wall of flame as it quietly succumbed to the heat, dripped it succulent juices, and became cooked to this carnivores satisfaction, was.....A FULLY DEPLOYED ROLLER DOOR!!! Aaaarrrgggghhh!!!
Like a knife directly dissecting my aorta with one violent thrust, this sight brought me to my knees, fists raised to the sky and screaming at the heavens like a broken beast at the gates of hell. Why,why,why? was all I could ask. What terrible fate has been bestowed upon the hallowed feeding grounds of this foriegnus carnivorous, the home of the only "pretty decent kebab" for hundreds of miles in any direction. Surely it hasn't gone down the plughole? Please tell me it aint so. For now I remain broken and hungry, dwelling in a dark pit of misery and mourning, clinging onto the faintest glimmer of hope that its just temporary, that that vision of blackness and finality, the fully deployed steel roller door, will rise again soon and the good folks of Chengdu will be able to feast on cheap, wholesome food, with reckless abandon, before doing cartwheels in the street and singing "hallelujah" in celebration!
