Döner Kebap

As Wikipedia tells it, World War II depleted Germany’s manpower to the extent that, desperate for labor, the country invited large numbers of Turks to fill the gaps. These Turks brought their own cuisine, which includes lamb roasted on a vertical spit with a delectable blend of herbs and spices, served on bread of some sort along with various vegetables and sauces. This dish is referred to as Döner Kebap (or Kebab).

Those Turks, or their descendents or others like them, still serve Döner Kebap in Germany today, including in downtown Munich. And when you taste one, it’s no wonder the food has been so long-lived.
