I’d like to dedicate this post to Doner. Doner or a Döner Kebab is a Turkish food that has taken over the city streets of basically every town in France and Germany. This type of kebab is made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Seasoned stacked meat in the shape of a cone slowly rotates alongside a heating mechanism until the outermost layer is shaved off by an employee and thrown into a pita or to-go box. The type of meat is typically chicken or beef and ingredients such as tomato, lettuce, onions, or occasionally fries are stuffed all together to create a delicious meal.
Doner shops are typically very small storefronts packed with people looking to get some quick, cheap lunch or dinner. Fun fact, the number of Doner shops in Germany reached 16,000 in 2011 while collectively pulling in revenue of around 3.5 billion. Our group, specifically the guys, have taken full advantage of this delicious, cost effective meal. The meat is always seasoned very nice and once you combine that with fries and the famous garlic sauce, it’s a heavenly combination. Plus, Doner meals typically only set you back about 5 euros! It’s always a bit scary to travel abroad and consistently find something to cure your hunger, but our discovery of Doner has solved this issue with ease. As I write this, I’m heavily contemplating making Doner my lunch choice for today.
