Yesterday I had a really nice kebab which I got from Alexanderplatz. The kebab shop is located in the underpass which leads to the U-bahn, close to the steps which lead back up to the main building, and I often eat there because it’s on the way home from work. I usually buy a ‘chicken dürüm’ (the connoisseur’s choice) – standard order is garlic sauce and spicy sauce, with all salad except the red cabbage. At this particular kebab shop they also add feta cheese on request, which counteracts the spiciness of the sauce nicely. At €3,50 altogether this is fairly standard-priced. The staff are generally friendly and the service is quick and efficient. One thing to watch when ordering chicken is that it tends to be less in demand than normal ‘döner meat’, which sometimes means that chicken which has already been sliced might have been sitting there for a while and has gone a bit dry and crusty. So WATCH OUT, döner fans. Yesterday I deviated from my standard choice and got a chicken döner instead of a chicken dürüm, and was slightly disappointed to learn that the cheese does not come free with the döner. Cheese is only free with the dürüm. Apart from that the meal was very satisfactory though. Results are below (each score is out of 5).
Service: 4/5 (friendly and efficient)
Atmosphere: 2/5 (busy train station, not meant for its atmosphere)
Price: 3/5 (standard)
Taste: 4/5 (very tasty)
