Chef Najati

Cuisine: East African, Somali & Swahili

Originally from Somalia, Najati came to the United States in 2008. She learned to cook at age 12 from her mother, who also owned her own food business. Najati spent her childhood selling her mother’s cooking and eventually her own on the streets in Kenya.

Najati wanted to start her own business, Namash Swahili Cuisine, so that the Salt Lake community could share her experience of being home. She prides herself on great customer service and serves authentic Somali and Kenyan family recipes. Najati recommends trying the chapati, chicken curry, and coconut beans!
