Spitz: home of the doner (pronounced due-ner) kebab and some of the most satisfied (and stuffed) customers in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Before we get into the food, let’s go back in time for a bit …
Originating in Turkey in the 18th century, the doner kebab is a type of kebab made of meat that rotates on a vertical rotisserie. I know, I know. It’s basically a hot, juicy MEAT POPSICLE. I’d take that over a blue raspberry, double-stick Popsicle any day.
Okay back to Spitz. They put their doner kebab meat (beef/lamb and/or chicken) on the following:
- sandwiches and wraps: hummus, tzatziki, feta and veggies
- salads: served with lavash chips (fried pita bread), crispy garbanzo beans, feta, veggies, and a balsamic dressing
- bowls: veggie sticks, pepperoncinis, crispy garbanzo beans, hummus and tzatziki
- baskets (see picture): lettuce, veggies, feta, falafel, hummus, lavash chips and a balsamic dressing
- taquitos (I KNOW): lavish bread rolled with spicy feta, aioli and onion. Topped with MORE aioli, feta and veggies
- fries (YEP): garlic aioli, feta, veggies, pepperoncinis and olives
See the rest of their menu here.
My favorite item on their menu is most definitely the basket. The tart balsamic dressing with the savory meat and fresh veggies (plus some fried pita bread and chickpeas) can’t be beat. Their falafel is also amazing (maybe because it’s fried?). Oh and the feta. And the hummus. And the…FRIES. Yes. The fries. This is basically a salad with fries on the bottom. It’s amazing and you should try it.
