Toum (pronounced “Toom”) is Lebanese for garlic. In Lebanon, toum sauce is viewed as the national condiment. In NYC, Toum is the Big Apple’s first Lebanese food truck. Its traditional Lebanese dishes – chicken shawarma, makanek, beef Kafta – are made from fresh ingredients and time-honored recipes. Family owned and operated since 2012, Christine works the business as she raises her children – her Dad works the truck. Although Toum’s daily location may vary due to street closures, events, construction and weather, the truck normally operates on the streets of Manhattan or in a food truck lot in Dumbo – social media alerts keep customers in the know. While the food truck has garnered a strong following from moms, suits and hipsters alike, Toum’s business continues to grow with catering and pop-up events.
