Taim’s Soup Makes A Great Start To Lunching In The New Year

It’s a new year, it’s freezing outside and you may have made a resolution to eat healthier lunches. Taim has your back with its daily soup, which you can find at the shop in Nolita on Spring St. (at Mulberry). The truck sometimes offers soup as well, although they don’t park downtown a lot these days.

The good news is that this lunch is so much more than the usual cup of soup with a stale roll or piece of bread alongside.  Read more »

Taim Is Officially Open In Nolita!

Yes, we all love the Taim Mobile truck, but now we have a constant source of falafel, sabich and hummus with Taim announcing on Twitter last night that today it’s opening the doors of its second brick and mortar location on Spring St. (at Mulberry). The store has a larger menu than the truck serving three kinds of falafel, platters, a bunch of sides and salads, smoothies and desserts. Whether or not you’re a meat eater, this is good news for the area although nearby Hoomoos Asli isn’t too shabby either. It never hurts to have more than one source of good falafel.

Taim Announces Opening Date Of Nolita Location (Kind Of)

There are a lot of people waiting patiently for the second brick and mortar location of Taim to open in Nolita at Mulberry & Spring. The opening was planned for early summer, but it’s now late September and that’s a lot of time to wait for some of the best falafel, hummus, and sabish sandwiches in the city. Word came on Taim Mobile‘s Twitter feed yesterday that the shop is opening sometime in the second week of October so fingers crossed that it actually happens. Luckily the Taim Mobile truck has been parking downtown a couple of times a week to tide us over. We’ll let you know when more specifics are announced!

Dear Taim: Please Open In Nolita So We Can Have Harissa Falafel Every Day

It’s a good thing I don’t live or work near the Taim brick and mortar location in the West Village or I may develop an addiction. However, when news came out that they’re opening a new flagship shop on Mulberry St. (at Spring) in Nolita, I did a little happy dance inside because their delicious falafel would be available after only a short ride on the subway. But that opening was announced what seems like ages ago, and the Taim Web site still carries a message that the shop is opening “soon.” Reports at the beginning of July said the location would open in two weeks, but that came and went. Rather than wait for the Taim Mobile truck to come close to my office (the WFC lot is as close as it gets, and that’s still far), I took matters into my own hands to try their harissa falafel at last weekend’s food truck rally in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. And after tasting this flavor of their falafel, I want that new shop to open even more.
