Here is a quick one. German Doner Kebab is obviously a doner kebab shop, which was apparently founded in Berlin back in 1989. According to its marketing, it has 45 outlets across the world: in Germany, the UK, Sweden, the Middle East and North Africa. They ship in their meat from Germany, which I assume is a good thing, though generally I thought people preferred British. It is very popular in Croydon, and I had heard lots of good things about it.

The interior is broadly orange and black, with photos of German monuments on the wall. It feels very professional, with a floor manager on top of the orders and his staff, but it’s a bit noisy and not really somewhere to hang out for a long time. It took a little longer than normal for the food to arrive, so they threw in some free chips too.

I had a veggie kebab, which was actually a veggie patty mashed up, with feta and jalapeños, plus the usual salad selection. It comes in their own bread, which is triangular, savoury, crispy, sesame coated and slightly waffled – and delicious! They have three sauces which they add (spicy, garlic and yoghurt), and they add some depth to it all. Overall, especially for £6, I was impressed and I think I’ll be back in future.
