“The 24-hour Indian restaurant is a naan-stop”

"Naan” (a flatbread) is the subject of several puns, such as:

“The 24-hour Indian restaurant is a naan-stop.”

“I have a friend who wants to open a 24 hour indian restaurant.  It will be called Naan Stop” was cited on Twitter on June 19, 2008,
“My grandma’s favourite 24 hour Indian restaurant—Nan’s top non-stop naan stop” was posted on Reddit on July 7, 2016.

There actually is a restaurant called Naan Stop in Isla Vista, California.


Wikipedia: Naan
Naan, nan or khamiri is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread found in the cuisines of West, Central and South Asia.

@ToddGinsberg I always said that a good name for a 24 hour Indian place would be “Naan Stop”, but now a quick Google shows it’s been done.
