Chickpea, a popular Vancouver food truck known for its vegetarian and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, will be opening a restaurant at 4298 Main Street this month. Situated within walking distance of other veggie-friendly joints like MeeT on Main (4288 Main Street) and East is East (4433 Main Street), the 2,400-square-foot space will serve Chickpea’s full food-truck menu, plus a selection of newly introduced dishes, desserts, and a full beer and cocktail program.
For the last 27 years, the Restaurant Awards finalists were kept tightly under wraps, but this year, we’re too excited
Not so long ago, street food was seen as something undesirable and inherently un-cool. After all, why eat from a truck when you could sit down in a proper restaurant? Today, food truck cuisine is a recognized and celebrated part of Vancouver’s cultural identity.
Chickpeas, the humble base for hummus, falafel and other beloved Mediterranean dishes, have long been a favourite food for vegetarians. Now, they’ve also become synonymous with in-demand, healthy fast food for Vancouver food truck fans. With Chickpea, Rotem Tal and Itamar Shani have created a menu made up of salads, platters and pita breads that even the most hardened carnivores can enjoy.
