Ahmed Quraja was born in Palestine and learned to cook shortly after moving to the United States. Cooking was his way of connecting to others. Once he got into the culinary arts professionally, Ahmed quickly became known across Columbus, OH for his friendly attitude as much as his talents in the kitchen. Now, he’s the proud owner of several establishments, including Zaki Grill. This little food truck allows Ahmed to roll around the city and bring mouth-watering Mediterranean fare straight to eager customers.
Zaki is Arabic for “delicious.” While the name’s no doubt a boastful choice, the eats Ahmed and his team whip up more than live up to the bold claim. Here, you’ll find loads of Mediterranean favorites. Start of with an order of grape leaves slathered in a lemon marinade or some falafel balls dusted with cumin and other full-bodied spices. From there, grab your main course. Try a bowl of chicken shawarma smothered in turmeric, paprika, and garlic sauce. Sink your teeth into a good old-fashioned gyro stuffed with slow-roasted lamb and beef. Really, it’s all well worth sampling, so hit up Zaki Grill the next time you’re looking to shake up your humdrum lunch routine. Or, better yet, book ‘em for your own event. Guests are sure to love it.
Chicken Sandwich — A pressed sandwich featuring grilled chicken slathered in garlic sauce
I truly believe everything on our menu is delicious, which is the definition of zaki.
My passion for cooking all started with my mother. She taught me how to cook traditional Mediterranean dishes.
I moved to the United States in 2006. I was an employee at a well known Mediterranean restaurant. My passion for cooking grew. In 2015, I decided to start my own truck.
My family was very supportive when I told them I wanted to start my own food truck.
I catered many events that I enjoyed. From church festivals to private school events to private corporate events.
The chicken sandwich. It consists of fresh grilled chicken seasoned with our special Zaki spices, garlic sauce, lettuce, and tomatoes toasted on a sandwich press.
