Doner kebab sandwich?

When I lived in France years ago I got hooked on doner kebabs... the style I preferred was from the northeast near the German border. Round, soft flatbread with a white garlic/herb sauce and red pepper flakes along with the doner and veggies. My mouth still waters thinking about it...

Can such a beast be had anywhere in socal? South Bay/Westside preferred, but I'll travel if it's worth it. Thanks!

  1. Don't know if this suits your criteria, but SPITZ has the only good doner kebabs that I know of.

      Mmmm... annoying website but my mouth just started watering again. I'll head out there this weekend and give it a try!

    2. I just tried it the other day. I thought it was delicious, as was the pita chips and hummus. I have never seen any doner kebab places in France, however, they are all over the place in London, Enjoy Spitz's!

      1. I found myself out and about today and took a detour to lunch at Spitz. Delicious! The meat was tasty, not greasy at all and spiced very well. The bread was panini-pressed prior to filling, so it was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. The tzatziki sauce was great (more yogurt than cucumber, which I prefer), but I couldn't really taste the chili sauce that much. I will ask for extra next time.

        My only complaint is that the meat is of the chopped-and-pressed variety rather than the flat-disks-stacked-on-the-spit variety, which I prefer. But it was still very good.

        Thanks again for the recommendation! Does anyone else have other suggestions?

        1. That website is annoying enough to consider never going.

          Well maybe I could try it just once. After all, in my youth I lived in the Latin Quater for a couple of years.

          1. for chicken shawarma, i think george's greek cafe at 7th and figueroa is tastier than most doner kebabs in europe.
