Abdul Mohamad was born in Syria, a country he left to flee the unstable economic and political situation. He also wanted to pursue a quality life and build a family in a prosperous country. He came to Greece back in 1996.
In Greece, Abdul has established his life and created a family. His wife is a fellow refugee from Iran and together they raised their 4 children in Athens. Currently, they reside in a suburban neighborhood called Agia Paraskevi.
In 2019, he decided to open his Arabic fast-food restaurant in the neighborhood, which serves traditional recipes with a Greek “twist” and a falafel specialization.
