A restaurant that started as a food truck has reopened under new ownership after a four-month hiatus, according to Boston Restaurant Talk. Walloon’s Fried Chicken originally made its brick-and-mortar debut in Peabody in November 2015, as previously reported, but it closed in mid-July 2016. (Its food trucks stayed on the road.)
A post on the Walloon’s Facebook page indicates the ownership change and confirms that the restaurant at 108 Newbury St. in Peabody is indeed open again. Walloon’s has merged with HTC Catering and Delicatessen in the restaurant space, and although there is a new menu (posted on the Walloon’s website), there are still plenty of fried chicken offerings, including fried chicken sandwiches and combos. There are also assorted empanadas, wraps, sandwiches, and lunch specials, such as rice and beans with steak, chicken, or pork. Plus, the Walloon's trucks are still vending around Boston proper.
