The idea was to create new innovative dishes with a twist. These dishes should be popular and well known, connected to Berlin and tell an exciting story. Our investigations showed that the “Döner Kebab” as well as the “Kassler” could fulfil these requirements. Both dishes are from Berlin and both dishes have a story to tell!
Berlin Reuben Sandwich
- Kassler – cured and slightly smoked pork, sauerkraut, rye bread, gherkin
We serve the classic sandwich with Kassler, a Berlin invention of master butcher Cassel, who ran a butcher’s and deli shop in Berlin around the turn of the 20th century. You could also call it the “Adlon Kassler”, as farmer Rahlf is exclusively producing it for us with a black-pepper coating reminiscent of the original pastrami.
ADLON Döner Kebab
- Strips of veal tenderloin, truffle cream, marinated cabbage, red onions, tomatoes, flat bread
The “Döner Kebab” is actually not an import success from Turkey, but in its current form was actually invented by the Anatolian guest worker Kadir Nurim in Berlin at the beginning of the 1970s. “Döner Kebab” literally means “rotating grilled meat”.
