DONER KEBAB

THE BEST DONER KEBAB IN FRANKFORT

It’s a long way from Turkey to Frankfort, Germany, but we found the best doner kebab this side of the Bosphorus. Doner, you’ll remember, is the Turkish version of Middle Eastern schwarma and Mexican tacos al pastor–thin slices of spiced lamb roasted on a vertical rotisserie (so everyone gets an end cut!).
Here’s how they do it at Koylu Doner (“Village Doner”) located at 65 Paradiesgasse 65 in Frankfort. (Above, Sirkin Akkok carves doner from a giant roast.)
