    On one of our evenings we went to Newroz Kurdish Doener Kebab at Rua Nova de Abaixo, 20 (Pza. Fuenterrabia, 5) in Santiago de Compostela.

    The restaurant is just about 100 m from the cathedral and in the Old Town.

    The restaurant is clean and simple furnished.

    We liked the dark furniture, colorful lampshades and the industrial kitchen.

    When ordering we went to the counter. We had a set meal with a soft drink and a chicken doener kebab included for 5 Euro each, ca. 6.80 USD. Our choice was water.

    We were then asked to sit down and our order was delivered as soon as it was ready.

    The doener was different than what we were used to from Germany or Poland.

    It was lighter, less spicy, had more salad leaves, which makes the doener healthier, and was easy to eat, aka “no mess here”.

    We liked the succulent meat, textures and flavors.

    The staff was friendly and spoke good English.

    Payment was taken at the counter.

    When we are back in Santiago we definitely are going to stop at Newroz again.

    It’s an affordable option in the heart of this fascinating city.

    Would we recommend this restaurant to a friend? YES!
    Would we visit this restaurant again? YES!

    Fascinating city and region. Even in summer, while the rest of Spain is baking, Santiago can be surprisingly cool although other parts of interior Galicia match even Seville. Thanks for your review u….


    Thanks Alexpo1. Indeed, Santiago de Compostela is a fascinating city, a composition of the past, present and future. We had mostly sunshine in August this year, plus one day of rain, but this is to be expected from one of the wettest regions in Spain. Cheers and safe travels.

    Likewise u………….

    Did you sample Empanadas and Pimientos de Padrón?

    Have superduper w’end!


    Yes, we sampled a lot of diverse foods and drinks incl. the famous peppers which we enjoyed filled with cod and Galician cheese, plus we had, local ham, savored olive oil, Spanish wine, egg dishes and of course some homemade Sangria too. But as always, we tried also a Doener, when possible it’s interesting to see how it’s offered here too on diverse locations.

    Thanks & Enjoy your weekend.


    After our dinner at Newroz Kurdish Doener Kebab (see also review) we went to Smöoy for frozen yogurt as dessert. It’s just a few steps away and interesting, because it has a white, contemporary interior livened up with a few color splashes in red, yellow, green and pink. There is also a nice seating area.

    The counter assistant was very busy with a few people waiting in front of me. There were three choices: a small, medium or large cup with one topping, two toppings and three toppings respectively. The choice was huge from berries to chocolate to gummi bears.

    We chose natural frozen yogurt, Dulce de Leche and fresh strawberries in a medium cup. We shared it, because the portion was fairly large. It cost around 3 Euro (ca. 4.10 USD). We must say it was delicious and loved the combination.

    So there is no doubt we will have to go back, when we’re in Santiago de Compostela.

    Would we recommend this outlet to a friend? YES!
    Would we enjoy visit this outlet again? YES!


    @ uggyboylovestravel – the worlds best frozen yoghurt, without any doubt, is Menchies

    I don’t work for them, but am often seen inside enjoying, whenever I am in range…..

    May not have been close to where you were, but its well worth a visit …


    Thanks for the suggestion Martyn, I will try them when we have the chance.
