World Record for Biggest Kebob Set in Berlin

Deutsche Welle reports that the world record for the biggest doner kebab has been broken in Berlin. It is a fitting title for the city where the sandwich was invented.

A massive 423.5-kilogram (934-pound) doner kebab was served up in a Berlin shopping center on Friday, October 27, 2017, breaking the world record for the sandwich that has become a staple of German food.

The doner weighed in at almost a ton, but broke due to its weight and needed to be cut in two.

Still, the larger doner piece broke the previous world record of 413 kilograms set in Australia, said the Record Institute of Germany, a counterpart of the Guinness Book of World Records.

The meat was served in pita bread alongside classic ingredients like salad, meat, and red and white cabbage. The cooks used an herb sauce because such an amount of garlic sauce would have created too much smell.
