My foray into the vegan cuisine experience was very short. I personally didn't find the food or snacks appetizing until I recently discovered for myself, Chickpea.
First off, the smell that radiates from this place is drool inducing. I've spent many nights waiting for orders here for Doordash and wanting to eat here asap. Secondly, the atmosphere and decor is very Main St. I love looking at the decoration at the top near the ceiling. Third, their menus have old school hardcover books, such a throwback.
But you came here for the food and I assure you, the food is amazing. Never would I thought I would give a vegan place a perfect score, but Chickpea deserves it. I ordered the Cauliflower of Life which is:
I was enlightened to the point where I would go vegan if every meal was this good. Ordering the platter gives you humus, pita, salad, and the legendary chickpea fries. The chickpea fries are a must cause it's drizzled with a sweet chilli sauce and when fresh, the middle is oh so good.
She loved her platter and would order again for sure.
Keep in mind, if you're early, you won't have to wait long for your food. From 3pm to 6pm they have happy hour deals like pita and a pint for $15, pints of craft beer for $5, and deals on house made cocktails.
Rating: 5/5 because it was so elfin good.
