Five Satisfying Ways Taim Will Fill Your Summer Lunch Needs
Taim means “tasty” in Hebrew, but in Lower Manhattan it’s also shorthand for “affordable, satisfying lunch.” The beloved local chain that serves up falafel, shawarma and sabich has added exciting new menu items (which you can get at its 75 Maiden Lane location). Everything is available in a bowl or a pita, making it the perfect meal to grab and enjoy outside in the summer sunshine. Here are five things to try this summer.
Summer Strawberry Tomato Gazpacho
This cool and refreshing soup is perfect for the start of the city’s hottest months. It’s a favorite of Taim chef Einat Admony, and features bright tomatoes and strawberries mixed with shallots, vinegar and spices, topped with a sprinkle of jalapeno and pita crumbs.
Taim was once an all-vegetarian chain, but, with the exception of their West Village location, that’s changing this year with the addition of roasted chicken. It’s marinated in mint, sumac and honey, and available in a bowl, salad or pita.
For meat lovers looking to replicate classic kebabs with the same taste, Taim offers kebabs made of Impossible meat, the trendy plant-based protein that looks and tastes like beef. Get it mixed with herbs, spices and onions, in a pita, bowl or platter.
Don’t sleep on the cauliflower shawarma, a signature dish at Taim that’s hearty and satisfying. It comes with pickled onions and amba sauce, and goes great in Taim’s fresh pita.
Finally you can send falafel, shawarma and hummus to your friends outside the city: Taim is now shipping nationwide via Goldbelly. The food is guaranteed to arrive fresh anywhere in the United States. Use code: GOLDB3LLY to get you $20 off your first order.
