HowIt All Started

Place: Tartus City – Syria
Time: In the 1960s
Location: Onboard of a Greek steamship

Hannouf the Father started out as a cook on a steamship. He used to prepare the traditional dishes of Foul and Falafel for the crew. To break the dreary routine of the daily meals, Hannouf thought of utilizing meat spices and adding them to the menu. The idea found its way to his heart, and he decided to go ahead with it. This is how his passion for Sujouk and Nakanek started, and hence, he traveled to Lebanon to pursue a career at a reputed butcher’s shop specialized in Sujouk and Nakanek.


In 1965, with his new métier, Hannouf the Father decided to return to the Syrian city of Tartus, his hometown. He eventually managed to persuade his father of changing his career in selling Foul and Falafel, and he planted the seeds of love for Sujouk and Nakanek in his father’s heart. A new chapter in his life is marked here.

Commitmentto the Profession

Out of commitment and passion for his profession, Hannouf the Father was keen on keeping the legacy going. Therefore, he wanted one of his sons to carry on with preparing the most delicious Sujouk and Nakanek for the community. He actually selected his son Mustafa who was eager to master the profession and to add his own special touch to it. Mustafa was a regular visitor to his father’s restaurant, and he learned the secrets of this profession directly from the teachings of his father.
