Three #Canberra Beanies!
Some of you may be aware of the Halal Snack Pack craze sweeping our nation.
It started off as a cheeky reaction by a group of Sydney mates to some anti-Halal hysteria spread by the likes of Cori Bernardi, George Christensen and Pauline Hanson. The started the Halal Snack Pack Appreciation Society on Facebook and the rest is history.
There have been several mainstream media stories explaining the phenomenon and thanks to NSW Senator Sam Dastyari it has even been featured in the Senate Hansard of the Australian Parliament.
To keep things kicking along, Sam also just released a video to explain to curious observers how HSPs are made:
If you’re in Canberra and you need to find out for yourself how good this culinary protest movement is then get thee to the Yarralumla Turkish Halal Pide House ASAP.
Here is what you can expect!
$15 gets you a HUGE styrofoam container filled with chips & meat smothered in sauces! It’s #Halal so you know it will upset some white people & it’s meaty, so sorry for those who like salad.And although it was not on their menu for a long time (like it’s a top secret for smart people or something) enough people asked Ali nicely so it now features on their permanent menu! People power works!
So naturally, Yarralumla kebabs gets three Canberra beanies!
