Chickpea - 4298 Main St and 884 W Cordova St (Food Truck)
Plant-based comfort food with a Mediterranean twist! In the beginning, Chickpea was all about hummus. Made from a delicious mixture of chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and spices, hummus is an essential part of virtually every Middle Eastern menu. This simple dish was the inspiration for Chickpea’s incredible food truck, which quickly became a favourite amongst Vancouverites yearning for a healthy and hearty plant-based fare. Now a charming brick-and-mortar on Main St (and burgeoning catering business) Chickpea offers hungry diners a colourful menu of Middle Eastern flavours, punctuated by modern, plant-based additions such as Tempeh Shawarma marinated in curry, sumac, and coriander. Using wholesome ingredients prepared with love, Chickpea’s all-vegan menu is as nourishing as it is decadent, making it perfect for breakfast (served all day), lunch, dinner or a celebration amongst friends.
