Doner Kebab withdrawls in Detroit

workinglunches2 | Mar 4, 2009 10:47 AM

After repeatedly traveling through Germany I find that I miss a good greasy Doner Kebab in Tasche or Durum while in the states.

Anybody know where to find one near Detroit burbs?

No, not quite a gyro. Doner when done right are nice layers of marinated lamb (though you sometimes find beef) stacked up on a spit a cooked similar to how we see Gyros done. But Doner is different (more meat taste less herby), meat is fattier (or at least it is often marbled with the consistancy of bacon) and not ground into the loaf. Served with s spicy sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, onions.....

In Germany you can't walk 20 steps without finding a Doner Kebab stand (best train station food most of the time). Here in US (nein).
