Love Doner kebabs for their veal shawarmas. Doner kebab which originally is a turkish dish, has now come with a new iteration by the German Doner kebab. The whole style of making remains the same except there is a change in sauces and meats used. The meats are directly imported from Germany. It’s one of those fast food chain where you don’t feel unhealthy, infact you just want to have more of it. German Doner kebab is located in multiple locations in Dubai and the one I’ve showcased here is their venue at Jumeirah Lake Towers. Service has been quick and of course shawarmas have the least waiting time.
The only in house speciality drink for them is the Ayran which I thought was excellent. It’s a yoghurt based drink with pepper mint (the same you would normally get complimentary in an Iranian restaurant when you order a meal). Otherwise they just have the packed juices supplied by the berry company and soft drinks.
Having eaten years of different of shawarma in Dubai, I feel the veal Doner kebab sandwich is the best tasting beef sandwich. If you’ve not eaten doners before then you must try as the taste is completely different. The German Doner kebab makes it even better with their special sauces, juicy tasting veal and super load of vegetables in their sandwiches. Wish these sandwiches started at a lesser price so I could visit them more often specially when I have a cravings for shawarmas. You can even mix chicken and veel for the same price. For those who love to eat more meat and no bread should try their their Doner Kebab box which is packed with meat and along with it, you could either opt for fries or salads. My combination for the kebab box was salads and veal which was awesome. I was disappointed with their fries though. Too thin to be exciting for me, wish they made better fries. The DURUM doner sandwich meant you will be getting your sandwich in a tortilla wrap instead of bread.
There was this hidden gem at doner kebab which was their veggie doner. The veggie doner was suprisingly very good. I would prefer to have the veggie doner than the chicken sandwich. Rarely does a vegetable sandwich win over chicken. All their sandwiches by default contains lettuce, tomato, onion, red cabbage with 3 different sauces which is spicy, garlic and yoghurt. For veggie doner they add egg plants, carrots, red bell pepper and potato with cheese which is not found otherwise. This is a must try for all the vegetarians they are going to love this bite!
I tried the Lahmacun with cheese and felt this one would be more suitable for kids. As it felt a little too bland after tasting those heavy duty doner kebab sandwiches. One thing they don’t have for you is the desserts 🙁 So maybe some good dessert and better fries would be a nice change to see at the German Doner Kebab. They also have a toll free number that you can order which is 800-Doner(36637). Refer to their website to see their detailed menu which is http://www.donerkebab.ae.
