German street food?



Have you ever heard the story about the Hot Dog? Ever asked yourself where it comes from? Sure it’s American! One report says a German immigrant sold them, along with milk rolls and sauerkraut, from a push cart in New York City's Bowery during the 1860's. The sausage itself was a Frankfurter, which is a great tasting German Sausage from, have guess: Frankfurt in Germany.

It’s the same story about the Döner, but it plays in the 1970’s in Germany. A lot of immigrants were invited to come to Germany that days to support growing the industry. Many people from Turkey immigrated and stayed to make Germany their new home for generations. A few of them opened up restaurants, and so started the intercultural culinary exchange. They brought the awesome tasting kebap to Germany. The word “kebap” is a superior meaning of “something grilled or roasted”. The word of “dönmek” - from which Döner is derived - means simply “rotating”. But in their home country, the kebap was served on a plate with some bread or veggies. The idea to put vertical grilled meat into a freshly baked bread with fresh cut veggies and a garlic yoghurt sauce was born in Germany. And that’s the way how millions of people know it, and love it today!

In fact it became the most important street food over the last decades in Germany and across all over Europe. Most of the young Germans eat tons of Döner during their daily life: 2 Million Döner are sold every single day. You can get it at every time, at every corner.

Germany's favorite street food - a great taste, combined with fresh and healthy ingredients. It's simply fresh, lecker and German.

Guten Appetit!

Döner dictionary



Learn some original Döner words and get ready to order your Döner in German


“Mit Scharf” – literally: with hot (as a noun)!

“Scharf” means "hot". But there is no noun for hot in the German language. Doesn’t matter – it is just fast, and the guy behind the front line knows what you want

Correct German: “bitte scharf würzen”


“Mit Alles...” – literally: "with everything" (as a noun)!

Meaning is: I like to have everything inside, from fresh veggies, sauces to whatever you put in. Wrong grammar is often used, and fully accepted

Correct German: “mit allem”


“...aber ohne Zwiebel” – ... "but without onion"

I have a meeting in an hour/meet my girlfriend this afternoon. Leave the onions and garlic out!
