The best kebabs in Madrid

By | 25 August, 2023 | 0 comments

This typical Turkish dish has become famous not only for its deliciousness but also for its affordability. The best-known format, the Döner, was invented in Berlin in the 1970s as a result of Turkish immigration to Germany. While the traditional kebab features lamb, nowadays it can also feature other meats like chicken, and is usually served with lettuce, tomato, onion and yoghurt sauce, though other ingredients like feta cheese and hot sauce are common. In this post we will take a look at the best kebab spots in Madrid.

Kebab House


The oldest kebab shop in Madrid is also considered the best in the city. Located in the heart of the Moncloa district, until recently it was also considered one of the seediest, though it underwent a complete refurbishment when the former owner retired. What distinguishes it from other kebabs is the quality of the meat, as they use slim fillets of beef stacked on the skewer, to which are added vegetables, yoghurt sauce and hot sauce, all arranged in the traditional patty. Remember, only kebabs and drinks are sold here, so don’t expect anything else.



Yunie Kebab


Another of the most popular kebabs in Madrid, it is run by Georges, a Lebanese who has lived in Madrid since 1976. What makes these kebabs special is the fact that there are 100% homemade using beef and chicken fillets that he buys himself then marinates overnight before stacking them on the rotating skewer. He then assembles all the ingredients in the pita bread and dresses them with homemade sauces.



Sumer Kebab

Located on Calle Bravo Murillo, Sumer is run by Ana and Zara, a Turkish woman who emigrated first to Germany, then to Spain. The key to their success is that everything is handmade, including the bread, and the meat for the rotating skewer is assembled fillet by fillet after marinating overnight. The meat varies from week to week and can be beef, chicken, or a combination of beef and lamb. The sauce is also homemade using natural yoghurt, mayonnaise, dill, garlic and parsley.



Byblos Kebab

This restaurant specialising in Lebanese cuisine is famous for preparing one of the best shawarma (kebab in Arabic) in town, which features crispy pita bread stuffed with chicken or falafel and accompanied by fries and a selection of garnishes. It is located in the heart of the Chueca district.
