How to serve them?

The cook removes a thin slice of meat that will constantly be grilled, and this meat will be cut into minute pieces. The meat is combined with the vegetables and sauces. The mixed content is placed inside a thin flatbread shaped in the form of a cone. The dish is then surrounded by paper wrap and delivered to you. This dish is suitable for occasional snacking and dinner.


Most commonly, the cooks use white mayonnaise and chili sauce for the mix. They can be consumed separately without any extra dressing or sauce. This dish is available in other variants like the shish kebab, Beyti kebab, and Urfa kebab. Instead of bread, they are also placed within tortillas.
