There’s a shiny African gem that now sits on the edge of a quiet residential neighborhood in Killeen — literally. Sunugal, a restaurant that was once located on College Street has now opened up shop on Florence Road inside a hard-to-miss, highly-reflective silver building.

The decision to move was economically strategic for husband-wife team and restaurateurs, Ndeye and Elhadj Kante, who started cooking professionally in Killeen in 2013. Ndeye and Elhadj uprooted from Rhode Island to live in Killeen in 2013 to be closer to their daughter, also a local business owner, grandchildren and for the warmer weather.
