Egyptian Food Truck Rolling into the Lehigh Valley
Later this month, sink your teeth into the Lehigh Valley’s newest flavor: an Egyptian gourmet food truck. The concept by Tim Bonner and wife Hala Rihan-Bonner sounds exciting. The truck’s not here yet, but the bright red vessel that boasts a full industrial kitchen is on its way. The business is set to debut March 22.
The menu will feature sandwiches, soups, sides and desserts. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free offerings will be highlighted. Both Bonner and Rihan-Bonner have extensive backgrounds in higher education but wanted to refocus on one of their passions — cooking, Rihan-Bonner says. They’ve jumped some of the geographical hurdles that have prevented other food trucks from rolling freely throughout the Valley by applying for approval from several townships.
They plan to be at a different daily spot Mondays through Fridays and have plans to visit Upper Saucon Township (near Stabler Corporate Park), Salisbury Township, Kutztown, Pa., Trexlertown and the DeSales campus area. There are other areas they’re still working to get into, including Allentown.
