DönerMen started with a simple idea; bring German Imbiss (street food) to the Chicago. Where Bavarian beer hall fare is what Americans have come to think of as German food, Imbiss is a popular and rich side of German cuisine that draws from various intersecting food cultures in Europe.
DönerMen is anthropology through food. Try Currywurst, a post-war Berlin invention combining Indian spices via British Imperialism and German sausage in one dish. Or try the other DönerMen stalwart, Döner Kebab, a marriage of flavors brought to Germany by Turkish immigrants in the early 1970's, packaged for the fast pace of modern Berlin.
Sound highfalutin? It’s not. You know how the U.S has tex-mex? This is sorta of a Ger-Turk. Or is it Turk-Ger? Either way it's delicious.
In this spirit of this emergence, new dishes and specials have evolved to showcase grilled meats and flavor combinations from around the world, but with a tip of the Seppelhut to Deutschland.
