German Doner Kebab launches flagship restaurant in Fallowfield

GDK has taken one of the most famed and loved dishes to new heights, using only premium meat and fresh vegetables

The Kebab. The king of drunk nights out and lazy cheat meals. You would be hard pressed to find a single Mancunian that doesn’t have a story that ends with a mouthful of tasty roasted meat and a newfound friend. 

But sometimes you don’t want a cheap and dirty tray from the closest takeaway that coats your mouth in grease with every bite. Enter German Doner Kebab.

GDK has taken one of the most famed and loved dishes to new heights, using only premium meat and fresh vegetables with traditional cooking techniques for the best of both worlds.

There’s tons of flavour packed into every last bit of their options without the familiar uncomfortable density that settles in the pit of your stomach. 

GDK took their namesake from their first store in Berlin in 1989 after the kebab became one of the top fast food choices in the country. 

Jump to present day, and they have over 60 stores around the globe including in the UAE and USA.

With their unique take on kebabs being a hybrid of tastiness and healthiness, it’s no wonder that even in areas famed for their own kebabs, GDK are topping the popularity charts.

All doner meat here is created equally, with cylinders of lean beef and chicken roasting behind the counter for your eyes to feast on before you tuck into one of their kebabs or box meals. 

For a first-timer, you have to start with their ‘Original German Doner Kebab’ which comes fully loaded with meat, salad and their own special sauces on toasted sesame bread. You can’t go wrong with that. 

Kebab connoisseurs amongst you may feel like picking an option a little more exotic, though. In which case, their Doner Lahmacun Wrap might be the perfect picking for you. 

A fusion of the traditional ‘Turkish Pizza’, lahmacun, and the wraps that we all know and love, the Doner Lahmacun Wrap is a bundle of joy that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

Find GDK in Fallowfield at 311-313 Wilmslow Road now to get your fill of delicious doner-goodness.
