Hello Döner Fans. The other day my colleagues and I went in search of sustenance in the blazing heat of the midday sun, and as luck would have it our wanderings took us up to Kottbusser Tor, where a man can satisfy any bodily requirement, no matter how disgusting. One of the less disgusting human bodily requirements, as we all know, is the requirement for döner. And it was this noble urge that we sought to satisfy when we entered… Kottiwood! Where dreams come true. Where young hopefuls look for their big break. Where fame begins. Kottiwood! The dazzling lights, the glamour, the fame… I had a feeling as I went inside that I was going to have a good kebab.
Kottiwood, or as it’s officially known Kotti’s Gemüsekebab, specialises in the chicken and deep-fried vegetable sort of kebab, which I have to say is a Dr Döner Favourite. Thus I ordered a dürüm, and watched with anticipation as my chicken and veg was slathered into some very doughy bread, before being strewn with feta, salad, spices and a squeeze of lemon. The finished product was handed over on a blue plastic plate, making me feel slightly like a child. But perhaps plastic crockery is a necessary precaution in this part of town. Anyway, my colleagues and I sat in our corner and guzzled down our kebabs with much gusto. Though the dürüms looked quite parsimonious, their size was misleading. For the reasonable sum of 3,50€ we received a very satisfying repast that settled heavily in the stomach and smothered the need for döner for the rest of the day. We returned to work well stuffed, fuelled with the energy to see us through the remains of that hot May afternoon. Well worth a visit, Döner Fans!
