Berlins Döner Kebab

Getting outside of your “traditional” LA restaurant scene to find something new to crave sounds like a hassle, until you find Berlins. Sitting not far from the Grove, Berlins provides self-proclaimed “foodies” with the international flare all of LA has been missing.

Keeping to the classic German Döner Kebabs, the owners provide us with a glimpse to one of the best and favored street foods you would find in Germany. And, it is as authentic as you’d hope, giving you a restaurant that has found its niche in a city full of diversity.


Walking into Berlins and hearing the fresh & modern tunes, you can’t help but feel excited and smile at the relaxed feeling you get from the place.

Keeping it simple and to the point, there are 3 ways to have your ‘döner.’

Don’t deny yourself the carbs for this treat. The bread used is delivered fresh from a local bakery, and made exclusively for Berlins, adding to the hype that is Berlins’ Döner Kebab.

Berlins Doner Kebab

The Turkish word ‘Doner’, literally translates to rotating meat, which is exactly how the meat is prepared and cut. So, for your protein you can choose their traditional 10-grade Beef & Lamb, their marinated chicken, or their veggie option. And just in case you’re wondering, there is no mystery meat involved in this creation.

Finally, before heading off to fill your belly, you have to top off your meal with fresh and locally grown vegetables and one of their 4 sauces, which makes the meal complete in my eyes.

Don’t be afraid to take some home with you, because the kebab’s size should not be taken lightly.

From pro to light eaters, most will enjoy every bite of this delectable meal and seek to add it as their cheat meal of the week. Every ‘Doner’ is 550 calories or less!

To keep things interesting, you can also take your pick from their selection of boba tea.
