Doner kebab facts for kids
The doner kebab (or donner kebab, but seldom döner) kebab with salad and sauce is a very popular food.
Kebab shops offer hot chili sauce and garlic yoghurt-style sauce. Barbecue sauce, burger sauce, lemon juice, or a mint sauce similar to raita are also popular.
Kebabs are often eaten as take-away food on the way home after a night out. There are several common ways in which doner kebabs are served.
- Wrapped in pita bread (the most common)
- On naan bread
- Served as a dish of "doner meat (and maybe chips), typically including salad
- Often preferred to be garnished with a range of sauces such as tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, chili sauce, mint or garlic sauce.
In the UK
Kebabs are very much part of the Friday and Saturday night culture in the UK rather than breakfast or lunchtime food. UK doner kebab often uses a different mixture of spices, because immigrants from Cyprus run many of the shops. They may offer doner, shish (lamb and chicken) and kofte kebabs, with a 'special' including some of each with bread and chips.
