Very expensive kebab – level 2

08-04-2016 07:00

You can get a very good and very expensive kebab in London. It costs 925 pounds and its creator says that it is worth every penny.

He uses the finest ingredients from around the world to put in the kebab. He uses Japanese Wagyu beef, milk-fed lamb and minced goat. A salad tops the kebab, and it is drizzled with a 25-year-old vinegar. A bottle of this vinegar costs 180 pounds.

Difficult words: finest (best), minced (cut up into very small pieces), drizzle (to put a little of some liquid on something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
