Schwarma truck on hold till January

Melad Stephan

Local diners are pretty excited for Melad Stephan’s schwarma truck to join the fleet of mobile food businesses in Wichita.

But they’re going to have to wait a little longer. Though he initially said he’d open the mobile Mediterranean food court this fall, Stephan now says he’s going to have to put it off until January.

He’s just too busy trying to open Revolution Rock Bar, which he’s putting the former Air Capital Grill/Whiskey Creek Wood Fire Grill at 233 N. Mosley.┬áHe plans to have that business open sometime next week. It won’t serve food but will be open for drinks Wednesday through Saturday evenings, he said. He’ll use the restaurant’s kitchen to work on catering jobs.

He has the truck, Stephan says, but he’s working on getting it painted and outfitted. His son, Jordan, will run it along with a local chef who Stephan is not ready to name yet. The truck will serve chicken and beef schwarma, falafel, hummus, fries, fattouch salads and more.

I’ll update you when Stephan settles on official dates.
