The home of doner kebabs

Berlin is the home of the doner kebab. Not, as one might think, Turkey: the sandwich with meat, salad and sauces was first invented here. Döner Kebap (Iskender) has been known as a dish for more than 250 years, but it was only in 1971 that Mehmet Aygün, the proprietor of this snack bar, had the idea of packing it inside bread. Hasir now has five branches in Berlin.
