The shot 11/17/2008:
Here is a doner stand near Taksim Square, a very cool pedestrian area in Istanbul. Doner kebab is a popular Turkish fast-food that I've found all across Europe. Basically, meat is shaved off of that meat cylander and put in a pita or tortilla with lettuce, tomato, etc. and sauce. I was first introduced to doners in Berlin last summer at the legendary Chausse Grill. In each city the receipe varies a little bit (ie: in some places french fries are included in the doner). I think my best doner one I got in Barcelona, Spain (followed closely by Berlin, and then Turkey)...the worst was in Galway, Ireland. Yuck.
