After three and a half years selling food from location to location in one of Loudoun’s most popular food trucks, Ammar and Emily Ikram have set up their operation, at least for the winter, in a more permanent location.
Flavour, a food truck and catering company that, Ammar says, specializes in adding flavor to American food, will officially open its first brick and mortar location in ChefScape at the Village at Leesburg on Saturday, Dec. 14. The couple will debut a new menu with four added dishes—chicken nachos, a spicy chicken quesadilla, grilled cheese and shrimp tacos.
Ammar said they have parked the food truck for the winter—a time when business drops off considerably—but will again hit the streets in the warmer months. He said Flavour will stay put in ChefScape at that time as long as business is good.
Ammar said that operating at ChefScape isn’t too different than the food truck, seeing that the space is about the same size, but that it’s definitely a change of scenery, and is warmer.
“It’s cool, it’s different,” he said.
The Ikrams launched the Flavour food truck in June 2016 on a quest to find “the perfect bite.” Their food is influenced by Ammar’s Pakistani roots and Emily’s love of southern comfort food.
They join Johnny Ray’s, A Taste of Puerto Rico and Colombian’s Place in ChefScape.
Flavour will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday. Learn more at eatflavour.kitchen.
