What is TAZA?
Taza means “fresh” in Arabic, which is exactly what their food is. Egyptian and Egyptian-inspired cuisine, made fresh every day! Tim and Hala of The Taza Stop run a full service, gourmet kitchen that serves fresh Egyptian cuisine with beef and chicken options that are all certified halal (all natural diet, no hormones or antibiotics), as well as several tasty vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free main dishes, sides, and desserts!

So What Is Egyptian Cuisine?
Egyptian history is over 7000 years old and has seen many cultural changes and influences! Egyptian cuisine is a unique blend of Middle Eastern food, like taameya (Egyptian felafel), shawarma, hummus, with the many cultures and spices of Europe, the Mediterranean, and Africa. The Taza Stop brings to the Easton Public Market the tastes of Egypt in fresh and healthy recipes that have been handed down through the family from Nana Hannah, the matriarch of the family. Much of Egyptian food is naturally vegetarian and gluten free also. And the food is made with NO preservatives!
Who Are The Owners?
Hala and Tim have been university professors and administrators for years. So why would these Ph.D.s want to open a food business — The Taza Truck, their mobile kitchen, and The Taza Stop at EPM?! For one, they’re passionate about creating a unique culinary experience and sharing these fresh healthy options with people searching for something different. Tim and Hala have traveled to over 40 countries learning about the great tastes from all over the world, and Tim also grew up in his parents’ restaurants as a kid learning how to cook and manage successful restaurants. Hala ran a successful business in Egypt and has been cooking her mother’s traditional Egyptian-inspired recipes for over 30 years. This combination of world culinary experience and a passion for providing simple fresh, preservative-free cuisine will bring you back to Taza again and again.
