LIVINGSTON, NJ — Members of the Livingston Area Chamber of Commerce joined Mayor Shawn Klein and members of the Livingston Township Council at Tabboule Express—a fresh, healthy option at the Livingston Mall Food Court—on Monday to commemorate its opening with a celebratory ribbon cutting.

Tabboule Express, which officially opened on Sunday, offers fine Lebanese cuisine, featuring fresh, homemade ingredients. According to owner Chuck Jabaly, Tabboule is unique in that it provides a healthy alternative to the fast-food franchises typically seen in the shopping mall setting.  

“I’m trying to have healthy food in the malls,” said Jabaly, adding that his menu features options that include grilled, natural meats as well as vegan and vegetarian selections. “You go to any mall, you can’t find anything healthy—it’s all fried or greasy. Our food is very healthy.”

The Livingston Mall Tabboule is Jabaly’s second location, with a full dine-in restaurant in Ridgewood that also offers take-out and delivery options. After being in the restaurant business for 14 years, Jabaly said he was enthusiastic that the Simon Property Group gave him the opportunity to bring this unique cuisine to a shopping mall.

In fact, he said he hopes to open a Tabboule Express in another mall in the future.

“Try the food, don’t be scared,” Jabaly said to potential customers. “Just ask about it and try it. It’s very tasty, very healthy, no artificial, no colors—it’s all natural food: real chicken, real meat and 99 percent gluten free.”

Testimonials from diners who have visited the Ridgewood speak highly of Tabboule’s chicken kebabs, falafels, grape leaves and more. To read more reviews or to view a sample menu, click HERE.
