  • Difference between Doner Kebab, Gyros and Shawarma

    What’s the difference between Doner Kebab, Gyros and Shawarma?  

    At a first glance, the Doner Kebab, Gyros and Shawarma look like the same thing. The meat is shaved from a vertical rotisserie, wrapped in bread, and topped with veggies. But despite the fact that these meat snacks seem so similar, they are quite different, especially in terms of meat, herbs, bread, toppings, and sauces.

    Historically, the doner kebab can be considered the ancestor of the gyros and shawarma. Shaved from a large meat cone that slowly turns and roasts all day, this meat was very popular in the Ottoman Empire (also Turkish Empire, 1299 – 1923). Before gaining independence in 1832, Greece was part of this empire – just as various parts of the Arab world. And, eventually, the doner kebab meat made its way to the greek cuisine as the “gyros” – the Greek word for “turn”.

    Likewise, the doner kebab meat spread throughout the Middle East where it was named “Shawarma”, an Arabic word for “turning”. Over time, all of these meat dishes developed according to their cultural environment and the people around. Today, they are quite distinctive street food items. But apart from their history, what exactly is the difference between the doner kebab, gyros and shawarma? Here comes a quick overview to answer that question:

    DSC_0220

    Doner Kebab

    Origin: Turkey

    Origin of today’s popular version: Germany

    Backstory: At the beginning of the 1970s, the Turkish doner was introduced to Germany where it was slightly modified. It was Kadir Nurman, a Turkish immigrant, who invented the German döner kebab, as we know it today.

    Kadir was the owner of a restaurant near the Zoologischer Garten train station, a main transport hub in West Berlin. He was the first to notice how workers craved something savory to eat on the go. Consequently, he wrapped his döner meat in German pita bread to make it portable. He added some toppings and created various sauces. And that’s how the German döner kebab was born.

    Meat: Veal or chicken

    Bread: Pita bread

    Toppings: White onions, iceberg lettuce, red cabbage and tomatoes. Some restaurants offer feta cheese, jalapeño, pickles and/or ezme as well.

    Sauce: Garlic mayo, spicy ketchup, mayo herbs, or tzatziki sauce.

    Do you know that Doner Deli is the only in UAE that serves veal doner kebab?

    view doner  deli menu

    Gyros

    Origin: Greece

    Meat: Usually a combination of lamb and beef. The meat is seasoned with a variety of rather typical Mediterranean herbs, such as oregano, majoram, thyme and rosemary.

    Bread: Pita bread

    Toppings: Tomatoes, onions, and red cabbage

    Sauce: Tzatziki sauce (a cold sauce made of yogurt, cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, and other ingredients depending on the recipe) with a little hot sauce.

     

    Shawarma

    Origin: Middle East

    Meat: Lamb, beef or chicken. The meat is usually marinated for as long as a day in a variety of seasonings and spices, like cloves, bay leaves, turmeric, cinnamon, dried lime, vinegar, coriander seed, and cardamom.

    Bread: Flat bread or pita bread

    Toppings: Tabbouleh, fattoush, cucumber, fries, and hummus

    Sauce: Tahini sauce (sesame based sauce)

     

    At a first glance, the Doner Kebab, Gyros and Shawarma look like the same, however, they are quite different especially in terms of meat, bread & sauces.

  • Doner Deli introduces Dutch-inspired street food item

    Doner Deli, the UAE’s leading provider of wholesome German Doner Kebab, now added a new mouthwatering item to its menu. The “Deli-Salon” perfectly fits to the brand’s innovative food choices and is all set to become another successful signature dish right after the doner kebab. But what exactly is a “Deli-Salon”? It is based on the Dutch “Kapsalon” and consists of a layer of crispy fries, topped with juicy doner meat, and fresh vegetables. The dish is usually served with garlic mayo, spicy ketchup, and/or herb yoghurt.

     

    Deli Salon - Doner Deli Kapsalon

    “Kapsalon” is a Dutch word and means “hair salon”. The name refers to the fact that the recipe was invented by a hairdresser in Rotterdam, Holland, who combined all of his favorite ingredients into one dish. Very soon, the “Kapsalon” became a famous street food item and spread across Europe. With their passion for street food and their ongoing drive to create new recipes, the people behind Doner Deli now adapted the dish to the UAE market while naming it “Deli-Salon” – a reference to the brand.

    Commenting on the new food item, Mustafa Alrefaie, co-founder and general manager of Doner Deli, said: “I tasted ‘Kapsalon’ in Amsterdam and was immediately convinced that this delicious dish should be included in our menu. But, of course, I wanted to give it our special Doner Deli touch. That’s why I decided not to include the Dutch Gouda cheese but to add particular herbs and offer a selection of homemade dressings to choose from. We tested the ‘Deli-Salon’ at the Dubai Food Festival where it was incredibly successful. Alongside the ‘Deli-Salon’ we are about to introduce other new street food items for the very first time to the UAE market. So it’s definitely worth to stay tuned for our upcoming menu which will be launched soon.”
