Middle Eastern Fast-Casual Naf Naf Grill Opened Today in Center City

Falafel, shawarma, and s’khug come to 1919 Market Street

After just opening its first Philly-area location at the King of Prussia Town Center, the Chicago-based fast-casual restaurant opened its doors to Center City today at 1919 Market Street. And just like they did for the suburbs, they’re doing the same for the city: free sandwich, fries and a drink, to anyone that shows (until 3 p.m.)

Naf Naf works like this: Choose between pita, hummus, rice, lettuce or couscous, then add either chicken shawarma, steak shawarma, or falafel. Garnish it with purple cabbage salad, sumac onions and pickles, and top with garlic sauce, tahini, or a Middle Eastern hot sauce called s'khug.

You can go to Naf Naf because it's new and exciting, but don't forget about Mama's Vegetarian, home to some of the best falafel in town (and just around the corner from Naf Naf).

More area locations are coming to Malvern, PA and Marlton, NJ—a company rep tells Eater they'll open in 2017.
