Finland's Fafa's will be serving up filled pitas in Covent Garden

What: Fafa's

In a nutshell: Street food via Helsinki

Summing it all up: Fafa's is a Finnish success story having started out as a street food vendor - and now with 39 outlets across Finland and beyond. This is their first time in London, where they'll be bringing their filled pitas to Covent Garden. 

The low-down

They're big in Finland (they started as street food and now have 39 stores) and now Finnish chain Fafa's has its sights on London with a launch in Covent Garden. First reported by Big Hospitality, this opening is just the start and they're looking to open a few more in London over the next few years. 

They primarily sell filled pitas and in the UK, there will apparently be a breakfast menu that you don't see in Finland and a few exclusive pitas too. That includes one with short rib, beetroot and tahini and another with grilled chips and harissa. And as for this first opening, it'll mainly be takeaway - but expect bigger venues to come.
