Little Morocco Cart Gets Robbed; Chef Omar Pops Up at Kebab Express

It’s been a tough 12 months for Little Morocco, the great street meat as garbage plate cart on 39th & 7th. A year ago this month it went missing, then it came back, but Omar (the man behind their great food) had left to start his own cart. That didn’t go so well, so he returned, and things seemed better again. Then we heard a rumor that Omar was moving to Los Angeles, and last week the cart disappeared after its permit was reportedly stolen right off the cart!

While Little Morocco is on hiatus (presumably trying to get a replacement permit) Omar has started working with the guys at Kabab Express on 55th and 6th. Word is he may stay with them until he moves to Los Angeles at the end of the year. That could be bad news for the Little Morocco cart (if and when it returns) since the food is clearly not the same without him.¬†We don’t know yet if Omar’s signature Garbage Plate be available at the Kabab Express cart, but it would be one more thing for them to add to their epic You Tube video.

But once I saw the YouTube video, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer. If these guys spent half as much time on their food as they did making that video (it’s 7 minutes and 20 seconds worth of photos) it couldn’t be bad, right!?
