To the Döner Kebap

This post is dedicated to the delicious Döner, one of the most popular fast food choices by young Germans everywhere.

Döner has an impressive average sales of 2.5 billion Euros yearly and the industry here in Germany employs 60,000 people in 15,000 shops around the country.

Like a gyro, but with a modified sauce (no Tzaziki here), its a sandwich originally made with lamb meat (although in Germany its popular with puten or turkey meat) with various vegetables in fluffy bread with a mayo-ey type sauce.

At first, I was reluctant to give in--as I didn't think anything good or healthy could come from such a large wad of meat being roasted on an open pit all day long (see picture below)--but since going public with my preference for the Turkish sandwich, I haven't looked back.

Thank you Döner for your existence.
