Naf Naf Grill Restaurant Review

: It’d be easy to overlook this counter-service joint, situated in chain-laden suburbia --- if not for the buzz it’s generated. That buzz, well deserved in many regards, centers largely around one thing, however: puffy house-made pita that’s plucked from the oven throughout the day. For the record, it’s good all on its own. When used to envelop the moist, flavorful chicken shwarma or falafel, it’s even better. Hummus is a bit of a letdown --- heavy on the tahini, light on lemon and garlic --- but the Israeli salad, a sprightly mix of chopped cucumbers, tomatoes and herbs, is first-rate. All the basics are offered, like kebabs and baklava; less common is the offering of purple cabbage salad.
