The days of a bit of repurposed meat on a piece of stale pitta with a few shreds of iceberg lettuce are long gone. No more dirty doners and no need to drink yourself into oblivion to to saviour the taste of one of these beauties – the doner revolution has arrived! And it comes sustainably packaged too!
There are gluten free, vegan friendly, and vegetarian friendly food options available.
Take a look around
The revolution comes in 6 kebabs: house special; doner; chicken; haloumi and the vegan seitan special. If you like a mix then there’s a combo waiting for you. In the doner meat alone is 120 ingredients – there’s clearly a science to this revolution and it takes lots of little bits to fuse it together!
Salad as an after though?… never! 10 ingredients take this one to the next level alongside the kebab. All rolled up in a homemade flatbread with lashings of in house sauces. The ‘street cart’ fries come laden with toppings and sauces – you might struggle to finish both together its that good.
For those that want something a little less meaty checkout their rice and salad boxes.
Pick from a selection of soft drinks to quench your thirst. And in keeping with the 100% sustainability model these are all recyclable cans.
Paul the founder went from cooking as head chef in a Michelin star restaurant to actualising his dream of opening up his own restaurant. I am Doner was the culmination of a trip to Berlin – the kebab capital of Europe – and a year perfecting the key components of one of our nations favourite guilty pleasures. What’s more the product comes packaged in 100% plastic free packaging – a feet that’s not been done much in the UK, so much so that it was picked up in parliament.
The open brick shop fronts have a very Berlin-esq feel with an emphasis on the pickup and go. If you do want to eat in you can perch yourself at the window and watch the world go by as you tuck into the revolution. Like all good revolutions, they spread; checkout the Leeds City Centre pop-up and the Harrogate store.
