Breaking News: Freddy the Falafel King of Astoria is Coming to Midtown
We don’t normally post anything on the weekends, but this news is so big we just couldn’t wait on it… Remember when we told you a few weeks back that Vendy Award Winner Freddy (aka the King of Falafel) would be bringing the food that Astoria residents rave about to Manhattan with the launch of his second cart. He was just hush hush on the exact date and location. Well, the time has finally come and it turns out all our campaigning paid off! Instead of testing the waters in the FiDi or Soho, the “King of Falafel & Shawarma Express” is coming straight to us in Midtown. He plans to set up the cart starting tomorrow (Monday) on 53rd and Park. He’ll only be serving falafel to start off with, but based on the menu he posted to his new Facebook page, the cart will be offering his delicious shawarma soon enough. Let’s get out there with a warm welcome and show him he made the right decision by choosing Midtown lunchers as his royal subjects.
UPDATE: Scratch that part about only falafel… it looks Freddy brought the shawarma today! Check out the menu after the jump.
