Chicago Still Lags Behind Great Cities as far as Mobile Eateries

While Chicago still lags behind in other great cities as far as mobile eateries, you can still get a decent lunch for a good price. Street vending is all about food you can get for less money than if you sat down and had a meal in a restaurant so enjoy what Chicago has to offer. Mostly street vendors will cook up popular and quick Mexican dishes but more and more places will branch out into savory dishes as Chicago's street food grows more popular.

Döner, common German style (Berlin)

Here in Germany I have gotten addicted to Doner Kabob's. I had one today when  I went to Kaiserslautern. It was okay, the best so far were the ones  I ate in Berlin.

A version developed to suit German tastes by Turkish immigrants in Berlin has become one of Germany's most popular fast food dishes. Annual sales in Germany amount to 2.5 billion euros.[12] Veal and chicken are widely used instead of lamb, particularly by vendors with large ethnic German customer bases, for whom lamb is traditionally less preferred.

Döner kebab in a dürümTypically, along with the meat, a salad consisting of chopped lettuce, cabbage, onions, cucumber, and tomatoes is offered, as well as a choice of sauces—hot sauce (scharfe Soße), herb sauce (Kräutersoße), garlic sauce (Knoblauchsoße), or yogurt (Joghurtsoße). The filling is served in thick flatbread (Fladenbrot) that is usually toasted or warmed. There are different variations on the döner kebab, one of which is kebab mit pommes. This is similar to an ordinary döner kebab, except that it has French fries instead of the salad. Another variety is achieved by placing the ingredients on a lahmacun (a flat round dough topped with minced meat and spices) and then rolling the ingredients inside the dough into a tube that is eaten out of a wrapping of usually aluminum foil (Türkische Pizza). When plain dough is used (without the typical Lahmacun spices and minced meat) the rolled kebab is called "dürüm döner" or "döner yufka".
