Akram's Shoppe updates?

Hello, just wondering if anyone has heard out there what's going on with Akram's Shoppe in Kensington. Last I heard, it was under renovation, due to open in January. It's still boarded up and it doesn't look too hopeful so far.

  1. Looks like the renovation to Akram's (I'm guessing former) shoppe in Kensington is finally near completion. Does anyone out there know what's going in there?

    1. Good news! I was in Kensington Market on the weekend, and the new Akram's sign is up. I'm sure it will be open soon. It's been a very long time. Looking forward to having their falafel's and shawarma's again.

      1. is that the place by patty king and the army surplus store that had square "pizzas"?

        1. Oh man! I can't believe he's coming back. I'm so happy. Poor guy must have been through a hell of an ordeal over these past few years.

          1. I can't believe Akram's is coming back. We thought that place was a goner for sure with all of the boards up for so long. I loved the Madouce (sp?) and veggie sandwiches. Any idea what the place looks like now?
