A Doner Kebab from Berlin's Hasir

Doner Kebab

Whoa - that was unexpected. Seeking a post-drinking kebab from the streets of Berlin, I made my way to one of the outlets of Hasir (10 Massenstrasse, 215-6060), which was apparently one of the originators of the handheld kebab back in the day. But what I got instead was a plate with all of the ingredients laid out and sauces on the side. I guess this was meant to be a DIY product, eh?

It was still good, especially with the crispy shavings of meat (almost carnitas-like). I didn't bother trying to assemble it into one of those things with the bread though...I just ate it right off the plate. Maybe next time I should look for one of those kebab stands rather than the proper sit-down place that this was.

Some of the kebab shops in Australia sell wrapped kebabs and kebabs on a plate. Sure you didn't ask for the latter with your broken "high school German"??

You got the Döner "Teller" (plate). Of course you are not supposed to assemble it into a sandwich yourself, that would draw a lot of attention *grin*. You should order the Döner "Tasche" (pocket)to get the sandwich.

What kind of beast was that? It looks very pink like ham. Or maybe it's just the photo/lighting.

Wow -- you go all the way to Hasir on Maasenstr. and you miss a total Berlin institution around the corner. You really, really, really, need some better tips when you go to Berlin the next time.
