Berlin Turkish Doner Kebab Bread....

Emily Wolff | Sep 8, 2000 11:46 AM

I studied in berlin for a semester and as a student, on a student's budget, i found the doners to be utterly indispensible, since they you could find them for about $1.50 or $1.25 in the Neukoln section. you can find vendors selling them almost anywhere, inside or outside of subway stations, or in little shops along the street. They're far better and more filling than a burger or a slice of german pizza (german Pizza Hut couldn't even get it right). I've been trying to find a recipe for teh bread that the kebabs are made in. The bread is what made the kebabs great, in my opinion. i had a kebab in london, and it was served in more of a regular pita bread shell and was not nearly as good. the bread was nice and firm on the outside, usually with a dusting of cornmeal or something like taht, and the inside was wonderfully light and airy. the bread was in a big round loaf, maybe an inch or two high, kind of like a huge pita. I saw boys carrying them around in bags of 6 or 8 going to doner shops. (I'm not sure of the proper name for these. In germany, they were doners or kebabs. in london, they were kebabs.) If anyone has a recipe or knows where i could get one, please let me know. Thank you.
