The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious falafel, hummus, and baklava growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of casual, authentic Mediterranean fare at The Chubby Chickpea, located in Canton.
Recently praised in a Wicked Local review, The Chubby Chickpea offers a taste of the region known as the cradle of civilization. Try the hearty falafel sandwich, served with hummus and Israeli salad, by itself ($3.50 small/$5.50 large) or with fries and a soda ($4.50/$6.50). Or go for the greek salad ($4.00/$5.50), which predates the caesar salad as the dish of choice of toga-ed emperors. The eponymous Chubby Chickpea sandwich ($6.00) combines shawarma with falafel, making peace with taste buds still angry over last night’s Cheese Whiz party. Those who prefer unbreaded, unbridled food freedom can try the eggplant plate, which, in addition to hummus and salad, comes with your choice of tabouleh, fries, or rice ($5.50).
A dedicated staff helms the Chickpea’s hunger-quashing operations seven days a week, so head there soon to prevent protests by progressive stomachs and unionized tongues.
- The Chubby Chickpea is a welcome addition to the Canton restaurant scene. The food is delicious, quickly and freshly prepared, and inexpensive. I have tried a number of the menu items and have liked every one. – Eva J., Yelp
- I’ve had my fair share of lamb-based shawarma, and this is definitely some of the best I’ve tasted. Very soft, with a fresh lamb flavor that didn’t overpower my American taste buds. It was complemented perfectly by the Israeli salad, which had the crispness only fresh tomatoes and cucumbers can bring. – Peter Cox, Mad Platter
