Killer Kebab is the unlikely child of an old friendship and a global pandemic.
Like it happened to many others, the first lockdown left the boys considering what they wanted to do with their lives.
These deliberations led to somewhat promising academic careers and dreams of global surfing adventures to be put on hold, in favour of opening a kebab shop.
But not just any run of the mill kebab shop – rather, the boys wanted to draw on their shared passion for food & culinary culture to create a kebab and a kebab eating experience out of the ordinary mold.
That’s why they decided to make everything themselves: from the meat spinning on the döner grill to the fluffy sourdough flatbreads, from the falafels to the yoghurt and chili dressings, everything was to be made in house to ensure that every single kebab is of the highest quality.
The first store opened in a rather quiet side street on Vesterbro, Copenhagen’s historic red light district, in September 2020, from where the boys’ take on a modern Kopenhagen Kebab quickly built a loyal following of foodies and kebab konnaisseurs.
Critical acclaim followed in 2021 with positive reviews published in the national newspapers Politiken (link) and Børsen (link), with Berlingske Tidende (Link) most recently rewarding us a 6-star review and the title as Copenhagen’s best kebab in their 2022 kebab test.
A second store will open in downtown Copenhagen in early August 2022 and the boys hope to open more shops in the future, but for now they are working tirelessly to ensure that every kebab and falafel lives up to the standards set in the first shop on Viktoriagade.
