A German-style passion project in the East Village NYC from Nikolaus von Solodkoff. That is in part how it was described in a recent article in The CITY Life magazine, noting that Döner Haus brings real  “German-style Döner kebabs to New York City.”

In their recent post, The City Life  presents an overview of the concept, the passion, the development, and the menu noting:

To bring the concept to life, Nikolaus partnered with restaurant industry veterans A2Z Restaurant Consulting, who have launched hundreds of restaurants and fast casual concepts over the last two decades.

In this section, they noted that the German-style passion project in the East Village NYC focused on a narrow menu:

The Döner german kebabDriven by the mantra, “we do one thing and do it right,” Döner Haus will only offer three menu  items: Döner Kebab, Döner Box and Haus Fries. The main focus of the limited menu is to deliver healthy fast-food especially geared to a young, spirited crowd. All of Döner Haus’s gyro cones are produced exclusively for them by a German-Turkish manufacturer. Their crown jewel, Beef Döner, uses 100% Choice Top Round Inside Greater Omaha Beef that is cut into thin slices, marinated for 48 hours, and then stacked together. Also offered is Chicken Döner, made from leg meat and marinated for 48 hours, and a Vegan Döner will be available soon. All the gyro cones have no fillers of any kind, such as wheat or soy, they are 100% meat and 100% halal. That way, Döner Haus can bring delicious, authentic German-style Döner kebabs to everyone.

The German-style kebab, also known as Döner, is a popular dish that originated in Turkey. The word “Döner” actually means “rotating”, referring to the way the meat is cooked on a spit. The meat is usually lamb or beef and is seasoned with spices like cumin and paprika. It’s then thinly sliced and served on a pita or flatbread, with vegetables and yogurt or tahini sauce.

Döner kebabs are thought to have first appeared in Turkey in the early 1800s, but they really gained popularity in Germany in the 1970s. Turkish immigrants who came to Germany brought their culinary traditions with them, and the Döner quickly became a popular street food. Today, it’s estimated that there are over 10,000 Döner stands in Germany! And the dish has become so popular that it’s now found all over the world – from Australia to Canada to South Africa.

So next time you’re craving a delicious, hearty meal, try a Döner kebab! You’ll be glad you did. Come visit this German-style passion project in the East Village NYC and see what all the fuss is about.
