Firinji, a Turkish-influenced (with a diverse international menu) quick-serve will open later this month at 54 E. Lancaster Ave, joining a slew of recent and upcoming Ardmore openings (Hummus, healthy chain Sweetgreen, and Di Bruno Brothers).
Firinji’s menu is centered around flatbread wraps, kumpir (stuffed baked potatoes), and coffee, with a wide variety of each. “Firinji” is Turkish for “baker”, and the menu anchors on Turkish specialties like doner & lahmajoun (no Turkish coffee though), yet quickly explores a wide variety of other cuisines such as Italian, Asian & Mexican. Hopefully they’re not stretching to far (a la Babu Bhatt) by trying to cover such a wide variety.
The atmosphere will be a casual cafe, with nothing on the menu over $10.
