The Best Döner Kebab In Berlin | Legendary Eats


This juicy meat rotisserie combined with three flavorful sauces, plenty of fresh vegetables, and a warm, fluffy bread make the hearty and
heartwarming döner kebab. It’s arguably the most popular street food and late-night eat in Berlin and found on nearly every street corner. But only one stall draws
a line of both tourists and locals at all hours of the day. It’s called Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap. Customer: You can see. [laughs] Customer: It’s very juicy.
The chicken is amazing. Customer: Look, this is
definitely one of the best döner kebab I’ve ever had. Narrator: Cooking lamb meat
on a vertical rotisserie has been a popular tradition in Turkey and throughout the Middle East since the 18th century. But how did the döner kabab become a beloved sandwich in Berlin? In the 1960s, Germany
was in need of laborers, and so it began inviting Turkish citizens to work in the country. And many of them never left. Today, the country is home to the largest Turkish
community outside of Turkey. It’s said that one of
those Turkish immigrants, Kadir Nurman, was the first to introduce the sandwich to Berlin in the 1970s. Nurman had an idea for
feeding customers on the go. He took the original
döner plate and stuffed that roasted meat and salad into bread. Many argue that Middle Easterners were eating the sandwich long before it made its move to Germany’s capital. But Berlin claims it as their own today. Customer: The guy from
the hostel told us that it’s a good place to go. He had told us that we
should expect a queue. That’s what we are experiencing. Customer: But not too long, actually. Maybe 20 minutes. Customer: No, 45 minutes, something. Customer: It can get very, very long, like one hour at 7, 8 p.m., when, especially in the weekend. Narrator: Every morning,
they bring in a new piece of rotisserie döner meat, which weighs about 330 pounds and is prepared and
served throughout the day. Once the meat is ready and
the ingredients are prepared, Mustafa Gemüse Kebap opens for business and is ready to take its
first orders of the day. Narrator: Despite offering
a variety of sandwiches and snacks, their most popular dish is by far the traditional döner kebab. So what goes into this famous sandwich? First, a freshly baked piece of bread is buttered and toasted. Then the specialty sauces are mixed together inside the bread. Next, layers of thinly
sliced meat are added, followed by grilled vegetables and your fresh salad of choice. Topped off with cheese
and a squeeze of lemon. And… Customer: It was great. It was awesome. I’m quite blown away. Customer: I liked it very much. Narrator: Gemüse in
German means vegetables, and ensuring only fresh
vegetables go into the sandwich is what makes Mustafa Gemüse so special. Narrator: Döner kebab
is not just a sandwich; it is definitely a full meal. Customer: On Mustafa’s Gemüse Kebap. Customer: Yeah.
[laughing] Customer: Mustafa Gemüse Kebap!

    What a sad video.
    I know Mustafas since it opened and the quality and quantity is so much worse then a few years ago.
    Also I walk past it almost every day and pity every tourist who waits like an hour to get an overpriced mediocre kebap.
    There are dozens of better places in town.

    Stop spreading misinformation!

    This guy fooling you all so hard on his tourist trap, yet no one getting it. He is simply replacing the expensive meat with more cheap vegetables which have no nutrients but keep you full. A good doner needs nothing more than bread and meat.

    Guter Gemüse-kebap! Like the presenter of this video, most English speakers are totally incapable of pronouncing ö and ü correctly 😁😂🤣.

    I hope I can stack meat in a huge Skewer like that! I wonder how long it takes for a huge Skewer to be made.
    A Vertical Rotisserie is called a ROASTING SPIT.

    🤔This looks like how you make tortas. Are these ayrabs stealing mexican food and making it german/turkish?…And that meat is just like adobada meat is cooked in mexico for tacos😐somethings up.

    " It does NOT matter if there are 100, 500 or even three customers waiting in the line; We MUST give the person in front of us OUR full attention and make sure that THEY get the exact order they want " 🔥👌🏾💯♥️
