You won’t find everyday items on our menu, but that’s exactly what customers love about us. From hearty Kabobs and Shawarma (made from plants) to our house made garlic dressing and harissa to our fan-favorite fried onions, we’ve made it our mission to fix the current food system: one plant-powered, nutrient-packed koshary bowl at a time. We strive to embody the mantra #Eat.Feel.DoGood in every action we take, and thankfully, it’s paid off. Our humble beginnings in the Common Kitchen have expanded to a beloved food truck, Cleo, that can be found anywhere in the DMV in a given week.
How are we creating impact? Our campaign #Don’tEatAlone launched right beside us on October 5th, 2018, where we donate one free koshary meal for every three koshary bowls we sell. Our customers become active participants: they get handed a token when they buy a Koshary bowl, and they can drop it in one of four boxes representing four different charity partners.
Each box displays tidbits about the organization and its efforts in bettering the local and/or global community. Our partners include: The Food Project, Crossroads Community Food Network, Grassroots, Give One for Good Food®, Baltimore Orchard Project,, Friends of Sparsh, Columbia Community Care, and we never forget about Essential Workers. All of these companies align with our values to uplift all people with love and support. Cleo, the truck, is getting ready to head to disadvantaged communities to serve them warm, hearty and healthy meals (Reach out through our website if you’d like to bring us to a community in need.) To this date, we’ve donated 3400 meals through #Don’tEatAlone, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
At Koshary Corner, we’re committed to sustainability. This means biodegradable packaging. This means encouraging bagless orders. This means no food waste. In simple steps, we’re making efforts to reduce our own carbon footprint in order to inspire the larger community to do the same. That being said, at Koshary Corner we don’t tell people what to eat: you do you. However, we strive to create options that enrich the market and give people broader, healthier, and more satisfying choices.
We do it all while we remain strongly tied to our Egyptian roots. Full of captivating flavors, amazing textures and so much history and culture, the food of our homeland is too delightful not to share with everyone. We strongly believe that this universal language can eliminate all barriers between different races, ethnicities, and identities. Our vegan twist on tradition represents the essence of Koshary Corner: to feed others with wholesome food, memories, and connections, who then go on to pay it forward.
Celebrate Koshanniversary with us today with our special anniversary deal: $8 for a wrap or “Normal Day” koshary bowl, only at our food stall.
