#GotHummus? New Ottawa Restaurant Chickpeas sure does!

Chickpeas Ottawa just opened it’s doors and already they are getting slammed with crowds of Ottawan’s demanding all the chickpeas! If you’re looking for a healthy, made-from-scratch meal, that happens to be vegetarian, you may want to do yourself a favour and head over to Trainyards.

We had the chance to sample the multicoloured hummus tray, the falafel sandwich, the falafel bites and the piece de resistance… the falafel waffle!

The owner and head Chef, Omar, was telling me that he travelled to Lebanon on a quest to find the best authentic and made-from-scratch recipes. He worked with chefs and visited quaint restaurants that helped him develop his signature menu and learn the tricks of the trade. Omar also told me that he soaks fresh dried chickpeas every night and removes the skin off 15 Kilos of chickpeas every day to make the creamiest hummus in town!

Chickpeas is not a fancy restaurant. It’s a healthy, vegan/vegetarian friendly eatery with a simple, tasty and fresh menu. You can grab a quick bite to eat, bring the family or take your meal to go. I love that it’s located in Trainyards, only minutes away from my place. It’s nice to have a healthy take-out option in the area.

So here is what we ate…

Here is the plate of hummus we were all dying to try! Beet, original, black bean, mango, avocado and red pepper. My fave was avocado!

This is the signature BAKED falafel waffle. I absolutely loved it! The falafel batter is so fresh and delicious. It’s not too heavily spiced and super soft in texture.

Yummy falafel sandwich. This falafel is particularly delicious because the falafel is fried. I love the fresh tomatoes in the sandwich that help to balance the salt in the dish. The falafel chips are perfect for the avohummus.
