I was invited to come try German Doner Kebab in Walsall along with a group of my friends. German Doner Kebab have just opened a new restaurant in the centre of Walsall and we went along to the launch night to try it out.
German Doner Kebab opened their first store in Berlin in 1989 and spent the next decade perfecting their policies and procedures, their unique blend of traditional spices, as well as refining and improving their innovative cooking processes. The kebabs are made from quality ingredients that are exclusive to Doner Kebab Restaurants, with secret sauce recipes which make their kebabs distinctive. To make their kebabs, German Doner Kebab use lean succulent beef and pure chicken fillets, which are imported directly from Germany to maintain quality and consistency. Added to these are fresh, locally produced vegetables that are delivered and prepared daily along with their special “Doner Kebab” bread. German Doner Kebabs products contain virtually no preservatives or additives with healthy, fresh, nutritious ingredients.
We started by trying a range of items mostly from the sides and nibbles ranges, as well as a smaller sample of the Doner Quesadilla from the mains menu. I really enjoyed the Chilli Cheese Bites, but the Spring Rolls were popular on our table too. We also loved the Doner Quesadilla, which I’d like to try the full version of next time I visit. The dips were really tasty too. We were all a bit surprised that the one that looked most like a yoghurt style dip had a bit of a kick.
For mains we had the classic Doner Kebab. This is a bit different from the kebabs I’ve been used to. Normally I’ve had an ‘English’ doner kebab in a chip shop usually after the pub. The quality was very high and all the salad was fresh and crunchy. There’s certainly a German influence visible in the salad as red cabbage features quite strongly. I think I actually prefer the cabbage to the usual lettuce as it doesn’t wilt as easily as lettuce does and there is that satisfying crunch when you bite into it. The meat was of a good quality and fresh too. I picked out the chicken for my kebab and some of my party had the beef alternative. The meat is lightly spiced and has that ‘doner’ taste, but it is a little different and distinctive from other kebabs I’ve tasted in the past. One of the stand out features for me though was the ‘Doner Kebab Bread’ which tastes different to the usual pitta bread and is much better really as there’s a better texture to it so it doesn’t get soggy and it tastes like it has been freshly baked.
We all really enjoyed our visit to German Doner Kebab and I can easily see myself going back there. It’s a great way to eat if you are in a hurry, but want something that’s good quality and filling too. It’s also a fun experience to share with friends.
