You know those places where the waitstaff doesn’t speak English, the trash cans are always full, you swear they’re doing a drug business out the back, they mysteriously close for a month to “renovate” but nothing is done, and you keep going back because it is so awesome?  Yeah.  That’s Selim’s Doner Kebop.  On the outside it’s spelled Doener Kebap, on the inside it is referred to as Doner – just another reason why I love this place.  They don’t even give a care.

You order at the counter and if you don’t get the Doener wrap or Doener pita then you are a dumb trumpet and you might as well go eat sweet and sour chicken at May Dragon.  I think the biggest language barrier is when people DON’T order a doener and the dude is like “I don’t know…I…you like Doener?”  You have a choice between chicken doener and veal doener.  Imagine Bambi on a spit and then go with the chicken doener.  After you pay you go sit down and they call you back up like you won Bingo.  You need to tell them what toppings you want.  I liken this to painting the Sistine Chapel.  It is an artform.  You can totally F it up if you don’t know what you’re doing.  If they look at you funny take back whatever you ordered because it was wrong.  Pretend like you don’t know English and let them pick for you.  Or trust me – lettuce, banana pepper, onion and special sauce.  You can also ask for a hot sauce to add too.

The doener kebap is the number one fast food item in Germany.  The Germans gave us Dirk Nowitzki and the Beetle.  Do I really need to convince you any further?  The tortilla wrap they use is phenomenal.  The pita is certainly worth garbling about as well.  The doener and fries combo meal is like Siegfried and Roy – an unmatched duo in Dallas.  One time I didn’t get the fries and it felt like I had been savagely attacked by a tiger.  Too soon?

Please, dear kind loyal readers, trust me on just this one thing: Go to Selim’s Doener Kebap and tell them I sent you.  It will confuse the shit out of them.

What is a doener? Is Selim standing behind the counter at this joint? I’m so confused, it looks like a gyro to me, but Dirk Nowitski confused me.
