The Chubby Chickpea food truck offers cheap Middle Eastern dishes for the mobile food lovers of Boston.
Chubby Chickpea lacks some of the glamor you’ll see at other food trucks, but it still stands out with its mustard shading.
During my first visit to Chubby Chickpea back in March of 2012, I was a bit disappointment w/ our buddy Chubs.
They were out of a lot of food, including essentials like tabouli, and I wasn’t in love with the falafel. Despite my negative first review, I continued to hear good things about Chubby Chickpea, so decided to give them another shot.
This blog post is my new and updated review of Chubby Chickpea food truck.
Chubby Chickpea’s Falafel Plate
I tried the Chubby Chickpea’s most popular dish on the menu, the falafel plate. The falafel plate comes with hummus, pita bread, and Israeli salad, which is a mix of diced cucumbers and tomatoes.
This time around, the falafel was much improved from my last visit – a nice, crumbly outer layer with a moist, warm inside.
The serving sizes at Chubby Chickpea are very generous – heaps of tabouli & hummus, and plenty of falafel. Chubby Chickpea is a really great value – at $5-6 a sandwich and only a dollar more for a plate, it’s remarkably cheap for such huge servings.
For me, the star of the Chubby Chickpea meal has to be the tabouli – absolutely delicious with a unique taste. I asked Chubby Chickpea food truck manager Avi and he let me in on the secret ingredient – mint! I’ve never heard of mint in tabouli, but wow, it is GREAT!
Chubby Chickpea Review: 4 out of 5 forks
With giant portions of grub at a great value, Chubby Chickpea is an excellent choice for those in the mood for Mediterranean.
Avi explained to me that back in March, they were still getting a hang of the food truck biz, and have greatly improved since then. I absolutely agree! Check out Chubby Chickpea food truck next time you are in their area.
