West Seattle seems to have somewhat fallen off the food-truck map – of course, it’s winter anyway. But Shimi Kahn, who started his Middle Eastern food business in West Seattle and is about to launch a truck, is looking for a spot in the area and wondered if we had any suggestions. So we’re sending his question out to you. Read on:
My name is Shimi Kahn and I am the Owner\Chef of Falafel Salam. I have been working for the past 6 months on opening a food truck and I am fully licensed and ready to go now (Hopefully this Thursday). We serve gourmet authentic Middle Eastern cuisine (falafel, shawarma, hummus, salads, etc’) and For a short while (2 years ago) we were working at West Seattle Produce (under “2 Chefs”, in a canopy).
I would like to turn to the people of the neighborhood and see where you would like to see our truck for dinner time. I started the business here (selling Hummus, Babaghanouj, etc’ at Thriftway and Husky Deli, using the Senior Center’s kitchen) and have grown and have always dreamed of working close to home.
I would be grateful if you could help me in any way.
There are two main restrictions.
1. It needs to be private property (way simpler permit).
2. I need a permission from a nearby business (up to 200 ft) to use their restroom.
If you know of anywhere like this and would like to see me there, please let me know.
Looking forward to cooking you guys some great Middle Eastern food!
