The king will soon have his very own castle.
Fares Zeideia, owner of the popular King of Falafel & Shawarma food truck, has confirmed that he will be opening a restaurant at 30-15 Broadway, where Chirping Chicken is currently located. He hopes to open next month.
The food truck, which operates just one block away at the corner of Broadway and 30th Street, is expected to continue as usual.
DNAinfo was first to report on Zeideia’s plan to open a brick-and-mortar eatery.
Zeideia has been in business since 2002, starting at Broadway. His business has flourished and he has gone on to open two more falafel food trucks–one in midtown Manhattan and the other on 30th Avenue.
The truck’s menu consists of falafels, beef and chicken kebabs, chicken platters and soup.
The restaurant will have a significantly larger menu. It will seat around 30 people. This will be Zeideia’s first restaurant.
Meanwhile, the owner of Chirping Chicken refused to comment as to what his next steps might be.
