Dr. Laffa is opening a second location, with more to come

Popular Middle Eastern restaurant Dr. Laffa — recently the subject of a glowing Globe and Mail review — has announced plans to expand. A second incarnation of Dr. Laffa is set to open near Bathurst and Lawrence by early 2013, and we’re also told that plans are in the works to franchise the business.

The new location will me more takeout oriented, but the Israeli-Iraqi menu (and the prices) will remain the same. “Maybe we’ll even add a couple of things,” says co-owner Sason Haba.

Haba also says that he and the other co-owners are looking to franchise the brand, and that there are already some interested parties, so expect more Dr. Laffas to start popping up soon.

Dr. Laffa, 3023 Bathurst St.
