Berliner Döner Wien
One of the mainstream destinations in Vienna for döners, especially late at night and fueled by alcohol. Berliner, which has nothing to do with the German capital, serves affordable dürüms (wraps) and falafel sandwiches too out of an oversized food truck parked, somewhat ironically, at the foot of the 18th-century Schottenfelder Catholic church. There are plenty of bars nearby, this is the fashionable-hipster District 7, which explains the late-night crowd. The döners are tasty, but far from memorable. In 2018, they opened a brick-and-mortar location across the street with an extended menu, but customers seem to prefer the original, open-air venue.
