Update: 1st of 4 new vendors opens at Troy Kitchen

The newest food court tenant
UPDATE (4/15/17): The newest Troy Kitchen vendor, Halal Palace, debuted with a soft opening Friday. A formal grand opening is scheduled for Friday, April 28, during the monthly "Troy Night Out." Among its offerings are various takes on chicken, lamb and falafel in the forms of gyros, salads and platters.

Owner Cory Nelson has signed leases with four very different new food vendors to replenish his Troy Kitchen food court that has seen several original occupants leave.

As usual, he's letting the information trickle out first via the Times Union, and promises to actually tell the public the names of the vendors once every few weeks beginning sometime next month. You know, building suspense.

The vendors will specialize in halal street food, soul food, Jamaican food, and  chopped cheese sandwiches. The latter is a sort of loose-meat cheesburger sub that for some reason has become so popular in Harlem and the Bronx that, back in November, The New York Times published a feature on it called "The Chopped Cheese’s Sharp Rise to Fame."

The year-old Troy Kitchen, located at 77 Congress Street, is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday and brunch on  Sunday.
