Rafka’s Lebanese Food Truck in Newburgh

If you crave NYC shwarma or a good falafel, look no further than Water Street! Rafka’s Table food truck is serving up Lebanese style street food favorites like baba ghanoush and tabbouleh. The husband and wife team, Christopher and Rebecca, are there Monday to Friday 11 am – 3 pm. They accept cash and cards and better yet, they are available for events!

A few more details from Rebecca:

“Chris is a veteran and was in the US coast guard. He is Greek and added his heritage to the menu by adding his favorite, the gyro! Rebecca- or Rafka in Arabic is where our truck name derived from. I am Lebanese and why we cook the food we do.

Why the truck? It is hard to find Mediterranean food in the area so we thought why not. We love cooking, interacting with people so this allows us to do what we love…and do it together. It also allows us to spend time with our four children Xavier (11), Dominique (6), Malia (5), and Mason (2 months). It lets us teach them that they too can follow their dreams.

Why Newburgh? We love this city. Every part of it. It’s diversity, sense of community, abundance of activities….all of it.”

  • Newburgh needs a falafel/middle eastern cuisine restaurant…I miss that very much since being here. I hope this couple is successful and that maybe they open a restaurant or small cafe here in the future.
