Serving original European Doner kebabs
During one of your international getaways, you never returned home to curl up in the fetal position and cry yourself to sleep over the lack of those sketchy, late-night, trucks, serving deliciously greasy treats outside your favorite pub.While some of us opted for the Euro-burger; smothered in mayonnaise (admit it, you kinda liked it), I think it’s fair to say that the renowned favorite of European partiers is the Döner kebab.
These little bundles of joy are straight outta Turkey, but are so ubiquitous in Western Europe, they’ve become a universal treat. However, they’re so tasty, once you take a bite you really couldn’t care less where these little devils came from.
In case you’re not in the know, a Döner kebab is pretty much a Middle Eastern-style burrito: Filled with lamb, beef, cabbage, tomatoes, onions and a cool cucumber-yogurt sauce. Add humus- it’s totally worth it. To borrow an irritating phrase from the even far more infuriating drop-kick Rachel Ray…”YUM-O!”
Ugh. Please forgive us.
Don’t like lamb or beef? Not to worry; moist & delightfully-seasoned chicken is available as well .
Vegetarian? Meat-free options are available too. Try your Döner with deliciously crispy Falafel, popped right inside. Their Falafel is kinda life-changing -I’ve personally witnessed a few meat-lovers convert. Pretty powerful stuff.
Mix Tip: The hot sauce! They’re very secretive about it -but it is like a sparkling gem, atop your coveted Döner treasure. Don’t be shy – just ask for it.
Not only does The Kebab Shop satisfy your late-night cravings for this Turkish treat, but it also makes for a killer hand-held meal for those on the go. With a prime location in East Village, just a 5 minute walk from the Gaslamp, it’s extra convenient for various businesses nearby to hit-up for a quick and enjoyable mid-day break.
Mix Up your lunch break or late night snacking -typical burrito – routine by stopping by The Kebab Shop – guaranteed you’ll become addicted, too.
