Döner makes you Schöner? New Turkish Döner Williamsburg Brooklyn NY
191 Bedford Ave ? (Next door to Bagelsmith @ N7th St)
In Jan, when I visited Gisa in Germany I remember eating at a Turkish Kebab place with a funny sidewalk sign that read: “Döner makes you Schöner” (lamb kebabs make you pretty). So naturally I laughed when I saw that the space that was once the optical shop on Bedford and N7th is now a brand new Turkish Döner shop.
But before you write off Oasis, the original kebab of Williamsburg, I’m going to have to say that Turkish Döner comes up a bit short. The döner in Germany is amazing. That place in Cologne that had the “Döner makes you schöner” sign actually rolled their own fresh flat bread with each schwarma order. Here, like the majority of places in NY, they use prepared tasteless pita bread. On the plus side, Turkish Döner loads up the meat to the brim of the pita. I think what’s missing, besides fresh flat bread that no one seems to do here in NY, is the dressing of the coleslaw salad. Then again, it’s their first week so I’m going to give it a bit of time. (I asked – these guys aren’t from Turkey or Germany) Either way, here’s another option for those late night places to hit every weekend.
