In Copenhagen, dürüm is king and everyone has their favorite spot. But don’t listen to them – Kebabistan is the best, and there are a few of them dotted around the city so you can maximize your chances. Alongside freshly-made falafel, which are pulled from the fryer and smashed flat with tongs by the counterman, there’s salty and juicy shawarma: spinning cones of meat that’s served in shavings on dürüm or Turkish bread, before getting rolled up with masses of shredded lettuce, pickles, tomato, chilies, and tzatziki. The best way to experience Kebabistan is as a lunch on the go or after early-evening drinks ruined dinner plans, with a side of fries and plenty of chili sauce.
