There’s a lot going on Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Unbelievable views of the city, buildings older than Morgan Freeman, and the intoxicating scent of Toum wafting right through the middle of it. Toum is Lebanese for Garlic, the national condiment of Lebanon, and a personal favorite of ours.
We got to chat with Simon about how his family's love of food - turned into a food truck. Speading the Toum love all across the city. Born out of dinner party’s turned “who gets the leftovers" show downs - and family cookouts with aromas that brought everyone on the block to their door. Toum is many things, but most importantly and quite undeniably – a crowd pleaser.
We did the beef kebab, a classic, with all the trimmings. And a couple Lebonese pizza's for the road! Made with love, the Toum crew is notorious for drawing a crowd, as made evident by the line at the DUMBO Food Truck Lot. Funny thing is, no one seemed to have a problem waiting, and we weren’t the only ones to get back in line for seconds… Follow them @toumnyc .
