ARL Doner Kebab: The Authentic Doner Kebab

Doner Kebab is originally from Turkey, it is a type of kebab, made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. The sliced meat of a doner kebab may be served on a plate with various accompaniments, stuffed into a pita or other type of bread as a sandwich, or wrapped in a thin flatbread. It sounds really interesting right?

Out of my curiosity, I tried every Doner Kebab everywhere to find out which one is undeniably the best. After a long time of completely immersing myself in a kebab scene, I feel confident to award ARL Doner Kebab the title of the "Best Doner Kebab" in town. This one just rocked me. Yet, what puts ARL Doner Kebab above the rest for me, is the way that it comes in a homemade pita and you can tell right away that their kebab is very authentic. Yes! The authentic doner kebab is already here in the Philippines.

Finding a healthy, well-balanced meal in a fast food restaurant can be a challenge. But now, you can indulge yourself with something both fast and delicious because ARL Doner Kebab is a reminder that fast food can be healthy too. It's better, yummier and healthier than hamburger. Let me just tell you that I will never forget this tender spicy taste and as a result I finished three kebabs during my three hours of stay in their stall.

One of the best thing is their price is very affordable but delivers a solid experience. The meat is tender and juicy. The addition of crisp tomato and cucumber into the classic lettuce, white onion salad and corn kernel is also a nice touch. Plus you can get a good amount of sauce. Honestly, one of the biggest reasons why I crave this place is because the sauce is too good.

For anyone who wants something healthy,wholesome, and different, come try this place out on their first branch at the 3rd Level of Robinsons Galleria South at San Pedro, Laguna from 10am to 9pm.
