The dispute over the invention of the doner kebab has still not been settled. It is not clear where it was first sold and by whom. But it is certain that the kebab came from Berlin. Developed ten years ago for a mobile vegan sales stand, it is enjoying ever greater popularity today. In the meantime, there is a permanent sales stand and a small vöner factory from which other cities are supplied with the vöner spit. Enjoy the mix of conscious, vegan lifestyle and Turkish street food. Fast food: healthy and ethically correct!
