In my neck of the woods, kebabs refer to skewered meat, fruit, or vegetables which are either grilled or roasted. This, in Turkey, I learned, is shish kebabs.
There are other kebabs. Such as the döner kebab which is roasted on a vertical rotisserie and sliced thinly. In this part of the world, it is widely known as “shawarma” or “gyro”. This type of kebab is served in a sandwich or a wrap, or on top of pieces of pita bread. Like the famous Iskender Kebab.
