Yalla is a growing fast-casual restaurant brand specializing in authentic Mediterranean cuisine in a vibrant, environmentally-friendly space. Currently located in Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek in California’s Bay Area, Yalla is slated to launch six more stores by early 2016. Yalla will first arrive in Burbank in fall 2015, followed by Culver City and Torrance. Yalla will present its brand of fresh, accessible, and authentic cuisine in a welcoming yet refined environment to Angelenos.
Incorporating traditional Mediterranean spices and flavors along with classic grilling techniques, the restaurant offers a build-your-own Salad or Yalla Plate, including skewers, sauces, and toppings, as well as three Mediterranean side dishes. Yalla utilizes a patented open-rotisserie to prepare grilled-to-order meats at the optimum temperature in less than three minutes. Offering hormone and antibiotic-free meat and a variety of gluten-free sides and sauces, Yalla will be a welcome addition to the Los Angeles dining scene.
For dessert, the restaurant serves Soft Serve Greek Yogurt with the option to add toppings. Beverages include handcrafted lemonade, ice tea, local wines on tap, and local craft beer. With an eco-friendly ethos, Yalla only uses 100% compostable packaging, napkins, straws, utensils, and cups, and the atmosphere includes a live lemon tree, in-store herb wall, and a colorful display of seasonal sides and salads. Inspired by the Mediterranean marketplace experience, the restaurant offers a warm and inviting environment for guests to enjoy accessible, authentic, and healthful cuisine.
