    Doner is the scheiBe

    If you get it at a proper shop, you'll get handmade Turkish bread, which is the most delicious bread in the world. Yummie! Order it with meat, cheese, lettuce, garlic sauce and tomatoes...

      " the shit" doesn't translate to well to German

      Anyways, reading through this thread I think I am just going to get me another Döner next week. I feel sorry for you guys that live somewhere where they have no Döner or ones of bad quality. The ones we have here (3,30€) are totally amazing.

        For the record

        Gyros is a doner kebab variation (spin roasted spices etc) that probably came to Greece during the ottoman empire time or after the population exchange in the 20s. The main difference however is that in Greece the meat is usually pork. This was established by law during the late 60s but i am not sure if its still active or if anyone follows it still since you can have gyros made from chicken and in rare cases lamp. Also some shops serve what is also called doner in greece which means the beef/lamp variation (traditional turkish one) but the majority of Gyros in Greece is pork. The meat is also industrial in Greece with few remaining shops making Gyros in house. Also what is different is the fillings and sauces used but this varies even within Greece. In general the northern you are in Greece the better the food.

          Gyros in Greece is either pork meat or chicken. I find the beef + lamb combination of döner far superior to that. Furthermore, Gyros in Greece ain't that good. That seems to be in line with other stuff I tried over the years. For example, I found the worst pizza was in Italy, and the worst kebab in Turkey, lol. No wonder the worst Gyros can be found in Greece.

              I don't know what that is, it looks like it will be quite delicious, but it's not gyros. Gyros is actually lots of boneless pork chuck shoulder steaks stacked on top of each other and put on a cooking spit which you then rotate beside a vertical barbecue ("gyros" is Greek for "rotation".) It's really as simple as that. There's no "secret" behind it or anything (except for the spices, of course, but everyone has a different recipe for those anyway).
