Kabob Doner (and more) Coming to former Shawarma Spot Space in Adams Morgan

2418 18th Street, NW

Back in mid-January we learned that Shawarma Spot had been closed “For Its Protection” at 2418 18th Street, NW.  Shawarma Spot originally opened back in the Adams Morgan shawarma craze of ’09.  Stay tuned for Kabob Doner coming soon.

Ed. Note: There is a Doner Bistro located nearby at 1654 Columbia Rd, NW. 1654 Columbia Rd, NW was formerly home to Sharama King. So it looks like the Shawarma rivalry between these two storefronts will soon switch to a Doner rivalry.

    More of the same, I’d guess.

  • I welcome a donor rivalry.

    • I welcome a donor rivalry (to literacy charities), but I really also welcome a doner kabob rivalry.

  • Closed “for its protection”? What does that even mean?

  • Just, why? Doner bistro is great and Amsterdam is right around the corner.

    Are we talking ACTUAL doner kabobs? On the crusty bread? Because that would be awesome. I don’t need any more falafel or gyros, thanks.

    • Doner Bistro serves what you would get in Europe. It is wonderful.

        Döner Bistro definitely serves a good döner. Their schnitzel sammich is pretty good – the bread is lovely – light and propely chewy. Having tried the currywurst yet… looking forward to it.

        • The currywurst is really really good. Much better than I had in Berlin actually. I’m glad I gave it a second try. Damn now I want currywurst.

    The end of the falafel craze and beginning of the Doner craze! Tesekkuler and vielen dank!

    Like a REAL doner kebob? I was thinking of opening my own place for years…
