Editorial Review of
The Kebab Shop
The Kebab Shop is a modern take on the popular hole-in-the wall kebab shops of Europe, similar to taco shops in the US. The original kebab shops of Europe typically have very simple menus, usually consisting only of döner kebabs, shawarma and fries. The Kebab Shop has taken that concept and broadened the appeal, having added a number of freshly prepared salads, a selection of shish kebab plates, the Iskender kebab, saffron rice and, of course, French fries. Kebab shops in Europe are an indirect result of the migration of many Turks to Germany during the late twentieth century. The immigrants brought their döner kebab skills and opened small kebab shops like the ones they owned in Istanbul and elsewhere in Turkey. Eventually the recipes changed to suit European taste buds and more veggies and sauces were added to what once was a more simple Turkish street food.
