Do Berlin Doner kebaps really have that much gristle?

Tried the new Verts Berlin donor kebap place yesterday. It opened next to Hopdoddys burger place on Anderson Lane.

The good:

- The interior is cute. Red on white with wood tables. High energy.

- I had the Berliner kebap with the beef and lamb. The bread was interesting. Shape was similar to a pita pocket but thicker than pita bread. It had a unique flavor to it. I did not love it but it was interesting.

- There were a lot of good vegetables in the standard kebap. They all seemed very fresh. Then again this was day one, but still delicious veggies inside. If you are vegetarian, I think you'll really like the place.

- They have a good variety of yogurt-based sauces.

- Fast, very friendly service.

The bad:

- It was difficult to find the meat in the big wrap. Few bites of that entire sandwich had meat or taste of meat in it.

- The interior was loud and echo-y.

- From the meat that I did taste, almost every bite had gristle in it.

After encountering the first two pieces of gristle, I decided to inspect the rest of what little meat was left to pull it remaining gristle.

I'll be in Berlin in a couple of months, and look forward to trying other donor kebaps there. Maybe the gristle is authentic to that prep..

This experience made me crave a gyro. Gyro recommendations anyone?
