Toum, meaning “garlic,” is the national condiment of Lebanon. This spread packs a serious blast of garlicky flavor enhanced by powerful citrusy undertones. Fans of bold taste would be remiss to miss out on this sauce, and Toum NYC is bringing it in spades to the streets of New York City. This truck, founded with the intent of sharing Lebanese cuisine with the Big Apple, is a true blue foodie experience.
The formula at toum is simple. Pick either a pita or platter and then customize it to your liking. You can, say, grab some chicken shawarma served over tabbouleh salad. Or, if you prefer, go for a whole wheat pita stuffed with falafel and pickled cucumbers sprinkled with parsley. Then, slather on your choice of sauce. You should probably go for the eponymous spread, though, which is pretty much impossible to dislike. To try toum yourself, stop by Toum NYC the next time you’re hunting for eats on the streets. If your palate is dazzled, book ‘em for your next event. This full-bodied fare will ensure guests leave licking their lips.
