Mike and I have a new food crush. I think everyone gets them sometimes- you try a new food and love it and then crave it constantly until you have eaten so much of it you have to wait a month before you can even think about it again. Well we are in the early love stage of doner kebab. What is doner kebab you ask?
From Wikipedia: Döner kebab (Turkish: döner kebap or döner kebabı, literally “rotating roast”, often abbreviated as döner, also spelled ‘donair’, ‘donar’, ‘doner’, or sometimes ‘donner’), is a Turkish dish made of lamb meat cooked on a vertical spit and sliced off to order. Two similar dishes are called shawarma in Arabic and gyros in Greek,kebab in s although ingredients and sauces differ.
There is a place near us that we kept meaning to try but we a little scared. See, wouldn’t you be scared?
One Saturday Mike decided that we needed to try it and went and picked us up some doner kebab for lunch! I was hooked immediately. I went back to get some the other night and took pictures!
The actual thing they slice the meat off of:
They also sell other kinds of kebabs and meat that look intriguing:
Here is my doner kebab when I got it home. You can’t really see the pita but it is there!
Those giant green peppers are one of my favorite parts. I think they are banana peppers but I am not sure. Along with meat and pita they put peppers, onion, lettuce, tomato and chili sauce on it as well. The best part is Mike and I can both get pitas and fries for under 10 pounds! It is nice to have a food vice that is cheap and not horribly bad for you. I wish we had discovered it sooner!
