Kotti Berliner Döner Kebab is one of the newest vendors in Essex Market, serving slow-roasted meat cooking on a rotisserie. The Turkish-style sandwiches that are served on light, fluffy pide bread full of air pockets deserve your full attention - they come with juicy chicken, crispy pickled vegetables, a lemony yogurt sauce, and a spicy harissa-based sauce as well. The sandwich has so many different textures, is super filling, and costs under $15. This is one of the best things you can eat in the whole building.
