Too Much Toum!
Yea there’s no such thing. For those uninitiated, Toum is Lebanese for garlic, so as we said, there’s no such thing as Toum much. Toum is known as the national condiment of Lebanon, and its signature dip, for good reason, you can put this stuff on anything. No seriously, test it out.
While trying to recommend Lebanese fair to friends visiting, founders Christine and Rodrigue realized there weren’t many places they could go, and the idea for Toum was born. They would introduce authentic Lebanese cuisine to us grateful New Yorkers.
Toum hit the streets in 2012 with their brand new food truck, eager to serve the masses. From the Upper West Side to Midtown, to Fidi, people just couldn’t get enough. Fast forward to today and Toum finally has a brick & mortar location so we can all stop chasing down that elusive truck. Stop by for juicy chicken shawarma, served with Toum (of course), Fattoush salad, pickled turnips, and freshly made pita. Try the classic crispy falafel rice bowl, served with rice and vermicelli, creamy tahini, and pita.
Looking for something light and fresh? Don’t miss the Tabbouleh salad with beef shawarma, served with creamy tahini, pickled onions, and fresh parsley. They also have delicious sides, such as pumpkin kibbeh (bulgur with minced onions, and spices stuffed with pumpkin), beef kibbeh, and spinach pies.
There’s really no way you can go wrong, so step up Toum the plate and try one of their dishes today!
