Döner Kebob anywhere, esp. in South Bend area?

Bada Bing | Nov 30, 2009 09:17 AM

Ever since I spent a couple of years in Germany and got hooked on the Turkish Döner Kebab sandwiches, I've wondered if they are made anywhere in the States. I live in South Bend, so that's where I'll start the inquiry. (I also plan to visit Philly soon, but I guess that's an inquiry for another board.)

For those who don't know, these are somewhat like the much more available Greek-style shawarmas. Meat is thinly sliced, layered onto a vertical rotisserie, and cooked from the side, and then seared meat is shaved off to order from the stack. In Berlin, where I liked them best in Germany, the meat was shoveled into a bread that was more raised than pita, and it was garnished with chopped lettuce, sliced cabbage, onions, and maybe tomato, and we would typycally use a spicy red sauce along with (or instead of) the mild and white Greek-style tsatsiki sauce which you typically find in the USA.

Thanks for any leads! I miss these things...
