You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we have a better idea. Each week, Canton Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out.
The Chubby Chickpea–There is no doubt about it. Middle Eastern cuisine is becoming a new American fast food. , located conveniently in Canton Center, offers great food at reasonable prices. It is a bright and sunny little place, easy to zip in and out of. The service is friendly, and by now you are probably familiar with their food choices: Hummus, pita bread, falafel, cucumber dip and other wraps and salads. Perfect for a healthy lunch! If there were any items you were not already familiar with, not to worry. There are descriptions of almost everything right on the menu.
The Chubby Chickpea is an authentic Middle Eastern restaurant great for a pick up order or a quick sit-down meal with kids or friends. It is a very casual environment. Definitely worth trying, as a falafel sandwich will only put you down $3.50. There are still kid-friendly staples like French fries, so they won’t have the feeling everything on the menu is exotic.
