Houston Food Truck, Abu Omar Halal, Goes National
With multiple locations across Texas, spanning Houston, Dallas, College Station, Austin and San Antonio, Abu Omar Halal is celebrating a new milestone with the opening of its first national location in Tampa, Florida located at 4802 E Busch Blvd., Tampa, FL 33617.
The story of Abu Omar Halal started in 2008 when owner Mohammad Altawaha traveled from a small village in Jordan to the U.S. in order to pursue a Masters Degree. While working to fund his education in various restaurants across Houston, Mohammad discovered his passion for cooking. Within just a few years he opened “Abu Omar Taco” which served as Houston’s first and only Halal based food truck back in 2011. In the early days, the truck served mostly halal tacos but after growing popular for their fan favorite Chicken Shawarma Arabi, Kabobs and Falafel, the food focus became Mediterranean classics. Thus the name changed to Abu Omar Halal. Now, with over 15 locations across Texas, Mohammad Omar has his sights set on national reach as he opens his first location outside of Texas in Tampa, Florida located at 4802 E Busch Blvd Tampa, FL 33617.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, Abu Omar Halal has adopted new ways to serve their customers. Through rigorous sanitation, call ahead ordering and delivery service, the trucks have not slowed down much since pre coronavirus. Additionally, Houston trucks have collaborated with Hospitals such as HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball, to donate meals to hospital staff and other frontline workers. Mohammad and Abu Omar Halal have no sign of slowing down as they bring this same customer service and quality of food to Florida with hopes for many more national locations to come in the future.
