Finland street food trader Fafa's set for London debut

The chain started as a kiosk in Punavuori back in 2011.

Finland-headquartered Fafa’s is set to open its first London site this September on Monmouth Street, in Covent Garden’s Seven Dials.

Founded by Tel Aviv-born street food trader Doron Karavani, Fafa’s now has over 40 locations across Finland, Sweden and Estonia.

Serving Mediterranean street food from a small Finnish kiosk in Punavuori back in 2011, Karavani’s menu eventually included pitas, salads and meze.

The upcoming London site offers a counter service menu with seating for 12 inside and out. New UK additions to the menu include stuffed pitas of slow cooked short rib with spiced beetroot and tahini, as well as grilled shrimp and harrisa. Cocktails, small batch kombuchas and cold press juices are also available.

Echoing the brand’s Finnish roots, the 750 square foot interior designed by DesignLSM features a bespoke concrete counter, statement geometric flooring and a bright suspended ceiling.
