Kosher Grill STL food truck will open this weekend

A new food truck will enter the St. Louis circuit this Sunday, Nov. 17.

Co-owner and chef Sharon Burgana said Kosher Grill STL will be stationed at Agudas Israel synagogue at 8202 Delmar Blvd., in University City from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays through Fridays.

This will be the first kosher truck in the St. Louis area, certified by Vaad Hoeir of St. Louis. For Burgana, the concept’s necessity was self-evident. “We ourselves keep kosher, and we didn’t have anywhere to eat meat,” she said. 

Diners can look forward to everything from shawarma, schnitzel and falafel to hummus, tahini and rice plates. Salads will include the Moroccan carrot salad, the mayo-based red cabbage salad, a beet salad and a corn salad. Entrees include Moroccan fish, beef in mushroom sauce and oven-roasted chicken. Pita will be sourced from Angel Bakeries. 

Burgana said the truck will also take catering orders, as well as provide food for synagogue events. The food truck will also offer weekly Shabbat menus.

Eventually, Burgana hopes to take the food truck on the road. “The goal is to get everywhere. Everybody should be able to taste it,” she said. “But for now, we’re at Agudas.”
