A Gyro is a Gyro.. or is it a Kebap?

This is the Spanish Kebap, In spain they have 2 kinds, teh first comes in a bun similar to a burger bun but only thicker and breadier. The meat is added with the sauce and then the salad as well. The second type is the Durum kebap, it is a pita like bread only flatter, thinner and bigger in diameter, made of durum wheat.

This is a fatty double kebap, Dayuuum!!This is a fatty double kebap, Dayuuum!!

You are exactly right- dönmek means "to turn" so döner means "it turns" which explains how it is cooked.
yayita yayita 9 years 14 weeks
hahahahaa woot woot!!! Lorioz explains it all :woohoo: Also Doner means revolving right? cuz it goes around in circles
lorioz lorioz 9 years 14 weeks
Yayita you are exactly correct! The real difference is just in whether the shop is going to be greek or turkish, or which will also determine if there is going to be any pork. I'm in Turkey now, a kebab(according to my husband) is an English form of the word Kebap. A doner is the meat that is sliced off of the upright roaster. A durum doner is the meat (off the roaster) and the type of bread it is served in (durum (like a pita). Since greeks and turks lived for so long together under the Ottoman Empire a lot of the food is similar-same, they just have different names. Şiş in turkish just means stick.
