Doner kebab/ shawarma: What's the difference?

Tante | Feb 27, 2011 12:52 PM

I fell in love with doner kebab in Germany a decade ago, and since there doesn't seem to be anywhere in the Nashua/Manchester area that makes them (PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong!), I'm wondering if shawarma would satisfy my doner kebab cravings. I've never ordered one before; how similar is it? What I'm looking for is lamb or beef with vegetables and garlic sauce on a thick pita. How is shawarma usually served?

Just describing it makes me want one immediately.
