Sometimes a picture really is a worth a thousand words.  I mean, there’s not much I can add to convey the deliciousness of all these pictures.  Yet, I will!

DonerG  just opened it’s second location in Irvine a few weeks ago on Barranca in the Target shopping center.  Their first location is Anaheim.   The restaurant is the brainchild of Yalcin Aslan whose family has been in the restaurant business for over 25 years in Turkey.  Yalcin brings this passion for Turkish/Mediterranean food to his DonerG restaurants which I had the pleasure of visiting a few days ago.

I started with their delicious appetizer plate which comes with baba ghanoush, hummus, dolmas, and pita bread.

I was dying to try this after watching that sizzling meat on the spit behind the counter.  Let me tell you, it was not what I expected, but in a good way!  I was expecting a Gyro type pulverized meat with lots of spices.  This however, was more steak like.  I learned that in Turkey, doner kebab meat is all about quality and needn’t be buried in tons of spice.  At DonerG, they only use thinly sliced top round and you can really taste how delicious the meat is.  They serve it with a side of DonerG sauce which you can add for more kick.

Their chicken kebab was also incredible.  I tried it along with a sampler of their various meats including Chicken Shish Kebab, Beef Shish Kebab and more of that yummy sliced Beef Kebab.  I’m usually a beef guy but I think the standout here was their Chicken Shish Kebab which was tender, juicy and a perfect fit with their DonerG sauce.
