Illinois-based chain Naf Naf Middle Eastern Grill, has opened its first Georgia location in Lawrenceville’s Sugarloaf Mills mall.
Naf Naf, which means “fan to flame,” began in 2009 in Naperville, Illinois. Naf Naf made its Florida debut in the spring and also has a location in Knoxville.
Customers can build their own pita or bowl, with choice of basmati rice, romaine lettuce, hummus or couscous as a base. Customers can add chicken shawarma, steak or falafel, topped off with chopped cucumber and tomato salad, purple cabbage, sumac onions and pickles.
Sauces include tahini, garlic sauce, harissa and s’khug — made with hot peppers, garlic and coriander. Pitas and bowls can be accompanied by Naf fries or lentil soup.
Naf Naf will be bringing its family-style meals for four to six to Atlanta, as well as larger catering options.
Lawrenceville’s Naf Naf is open 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays and noon-6 p.m. Sundays.
