A decade ago, two guys from Morocco – complete strangers to each other – moved to Virginia in pursuit of the American Dream. Hicham and Isalmou met as line cooks in a restaurant, became fast friends, and are now restaurant owners and entrepreneurs together. They found that they share a love of food, a fierce work ethic, and a sense of humor that never ends (really – they are always laughing).

In 2016 the duo thought of the concept Koobála – Mediterranean, Hawaiian and Latin American cuisine served in a fast casual setting all under one roof. You really can't beat it!

Ammar Ikram, executive chef and owner of Flavour, worked alongside Hicham and Isalmou to help bring their vision to life. After months of meticulous menu planning and tastings, these three visionaries have created the perfect blend of flavors for you to enjoy!

We are all one family here – and we invite you to

be part of the Koobála family, too.
