Döner Kebab: vegan

In spite of the fact that Döner Kebab is native part of the Arab cuisine, I associate this dish only with Berlin. Thanks to the Turkish emigrants even Germans consider Döner as part of their ethnic cuisine.

In Germany Döner consists of pitta bread and such stuffing like meat, sauce, greens and vegetables, but sometimes it can be wheat-flour tortilla instead of pitta bread. Vegetarian Döner with soft cheese (feta) as a substitute for meat is usual thing in Berlin.

Tip for lacto-vegetarians and who eats meat: If you visit in Berlin, try Döner Kebab that you can buy in popular quarter Kreuzberg near the metro station (U-bahn) Kotbusser Tor. The stall (Dönerbude) is called Tadum Döner.

You can choose Mustafa’s Gemüsekebap as well. They’ve also one of the best and popular Döner in the city. It’s located in Kreuzberg near the Mehringdamm metro station.

I’m sure, that it’s possible to “build” any dish for vegan cuisine. And today you learn, how to make a vegan Döner!
