Option 1: Carry tissues.
Option 2: Don't care about the drippy and enjoy the kebab.

There. Done.

Next question ?

Careful....

Re: Do you think that people who sell Kebab for a living ever ate one themselves?

I discovered in Switzerland that it is actually possible to eat a kebab without first having to down 8 pints of lager.

Do it the Brit way and you won't care what drips all over you.

I thought this was going to be a thread about the questionable composition of doner kebabs i.e. hoofs, eyeballs, skin, brains, offal and arse

Save your money. It's impossible to eat a kebab with any kind of dignity

Alright, here is my rant. Once in a while, when I'm on the go and I don't feel like having to wait 30min at a restaurant for a healthy Swiss standard Menu A, B or C (Rösti with Bratwurst, Cordon Bleu or some pseudo Pasta or if it's Friday, Fishknusperli).....I'll go and have me a Kebab. I assume that most of you order it with lots of sauce as well. The thing that gets me, the shopkeeper only includes 1...as in ONE of those smallish, cheapo tissues that are not all that effective...and if you ask for more tissues and they hand you another 2. All combined, they're about as effective as a plastic bag. I honestly don't think, that anybody who ever sold a Kebab in Switzerland ever ate one themselves. There, I've said it...rant over.
you have to suck the kebap while biting/eating it, this way sauce won´t drop from the bottom.

Now there is a picture...

EDIT : I just read this again and this isn't a metaphor or something...is it ? I mean you seem to have a lot of kebab experience.

Never had problems with Dürüm Kebab.
If you take the one with the thick pita bread then you're heading for troubles especially if you eat & walk.
You can also stick a straw in the kebab and suck the sauce while walking...that will also change you in a big attraction in the street.
