Kebabs are good, but it’s a deep fried version that has got people talking.
If you haven’t seen the new Avengers: Infinity War, there happens to be a scene set in Edinburgh, Scotland where Elizabeth Olsen (who plays Wanda) and Paul Bettany (Vision) have a conversation front of a kebab shop.
But it’s not the conversation people are obsessing over. It’s the damn sign that says “WE WILL DEEP FRY YOUR KEBAB,” complete with a Scottish Saltire flag under it.
Yes, the sign actually says that.
So yeah, people think it’s pretty damn awesome. And by people, we’re pretty sure they’re just Scots, or at least Scots at heart.
The best part of Avengers: Infinity War is when Elizabeth Olsen pleads with Paul Bettany while standing next to a sign that says “WE WILL DEEP FRY YOUR KEBAB”

My big take from Infinity War was that ‘we can deep fry your kebab’ sign in the Edinburgh scene.

The most prominent part of the Edinburgh bit in Avengers, during a really emotional moment:
A big sign in a chippie window reading “WE WILL DEEP FRY YOUR KEBAB” with a wee saltire underneath it and everything.
Fantastic stuff. 🏴🏴🏴

Infinity Wars …
Superman didn’t show up.
Batman was busy.
Wonder Woman had other plans.
But in Scotland, they will deep fry kebabs.

OK, you’re probably wondering by now: Do people in Scotland actually deep fry kebabs?
But it wouldn’t be surprising if there was a chippy (a fish and chip shop) out there doing it. There was Glasgow’s Stonner Kebab from a few years back, which was a pork sausage wrapped in doner kebab meat, battered then fried.
Being Scotland though, they’re probably hiding a deep fryer out back.
