German fast food in New Jersey? Yes it is one thing
Is there something the American Dream in East Rutherford doesn’t have? You can ski in July. You can swim and splash around in February. You can buy from high end stores. Kids will be entertained at the Nickelodeon Universe theme park. You can play mini golf in black light. They have an aquarium.
If all of this isn’t ridiculous enough (and we mean ridiculous in a good way), your very concept of what is and isn’t fast food is about to be called into question.
German Doner Kebab has its first location in the United States and it’s here in New Jersey at the American Dream Mall. German fast food? It’s a thing. A doner kebab is described on their website as “premium lean meats served in hand-made toast with exclusive sauces.”
Imagine a sandwich made with minced chicken or beef or you can go crazy and have it both in one. They stack on top of red cabbage, onions and tomatoes. Then these sauces. Garlic sauce, a spicy sauce and a yogurt sauce. Okay, I’m already intrigued. Then the bread is a kind of waffle flatbread.
Discover their website and tell me you don’t wanna try this.
They even have doner quesadillas, doner spring rolls, and chili cheese bites. If that doesn’t sound like fast food to you fast food purists, there is a döner burger and they have fries.
Now this doner kebab looks messy, and when we think of fast food in New Jersey, we think of a dash to eat on the go between dates. Would that ever happen in a drive-thru eating doner kebab in the fast lane of 78? I do not know. Corn Article by Jeremy Schneider on nj.com about it, he describes it as “massive”, but he seems to give it rave reviews.
Wondering how to pronounce doner kebab? It’s pretty straightforward. Here is:
I don’t know if the German Doner Kebab is going to be heard here in Jersey, but I’m not the person to ask. Even though I’m mostly German (and even more so than I thought when ancestry research revealed my paternal grandfather was adopted and I’m not Polish at all), I don’t know anything about German cuisine, to the German language, etc. hot dog with sauerkraut, does that count?
