European Street Food
Doner Kebab (also Döner kebab, and most easily pronounced Doughnair) is a type of kebab, made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie grill also called a spit. The seasoned meat then stacked in the shape of an inverted cone is then turned slowly on the rotisserie, next to a vertical cooking element. The outer layer is sliced into thin shavings as it cooks. The vertical rotisserie was invented in the 19th-century Ottoman Empire, and döner kebab inspired similar dishes such as the Arabic shawarma, Greek gyros, and Mexican al pastor.
The sliced meat of a döner kebab may be served on a plate with various accompaniments, stuffed into a pita or other type of bread as a sandwich, or wrapped in a thin flatbread. Since the early 1970s, the sandwich or wrap form has become popular around the world as a fast food dish sold by kebab shops, and is often called simply a "kebab". The sandwich generally contains salad or vegetables, which may include tomato, lettuce, cabbage, onion, and fresh or pickled cucumbers, chili, and various types of sauces.
The döner kebab was popularized in Berlin, Germany by Turkish immigrants in the early 1970's. The dish developed there from its original form into a distinctive style of sandwich with salad, vegetables, and sauces, sold in large portions at affordable prices, that would soon become one of the top-selling fast food and street food dishes in Germany and much of Europe, and popular throughout the world.
