Doner Deli, the UAE’s leading provider of wholesome German Doner Kebab, now added a new mouthwatering item to its menu. The “Deli-Salon” perfectly fits to the brand’s innovative food choices and is all set to become another successful signature dish right after the doner kebab. But what exactly is a “Deli-Salon”? It is based on the Dutch “Kapsalon” and consists of a layer of crispy fries, topped with juicy doner meat, and fresh vegetables. The dish is usually served with garlic mayo, spicy ketchup, and/or herb yoghurt.
“Kapsalon” is a Dutch word and means “hair salon”. The name refers to the fact that the recipe was invented by a hairdresser in Rotterdam, Holland, who combined all of his favorite ingredients into one dish. Very soon, the “Kapsalon” became a famous street food item and spread across Europe. With their passion for street food and their ongoing drive to create new recipes, the people behind Doner Deli now adapted the dish to the UAE market while naming it “Deli-Salon” – a reference to the brand.
Commenting on the new food item, Mustafa Alrefaie, co-founder and general manager of Doner Deli, said: “I tasted ‘Kapsalon’ in Amsterdam and was immediately convinced that this delicious dish should be included in our menu. But, of course, I wanted to give it our special Doner Deli touch. That’s why I decided not to include the Dutch Gouda cheese but to add particular herbs and offer a selection of homemade dressings to choose from. We tested the ‘Deli-Salon’ at the Dubai Food Festival where it was incredibly successful. Alongside the ‘Deli-Salon’ we are about to introduce other new street food items for the very first time to the UAE market. So it’s definitely worth to stay tuned for our upcoming menu which will be launched soon.”
