The Chubby Chickpea in Canton MA

 

Chubby Chickpea Restaurant in Canton MA

 

I was scrolling through some photos in DropBox and stumbled across this photo taken at the Chubby Chickpea back in 2014 on the South Shore of Boston in Canton.

 

I was in New England for a business trip for CRS and had the great fortune to meet-up with some AR friends for the first time! I thought the name of the place was pretty cool, the food (Middle Eastern) was great, and of course the company was the best!! The event was organized by Nina Rogoff and included Praful Thakkar , Larry Lawfer and Christine Smith

What a fun place to stage an AR meetup!  Food trucks are starting to take over the world - and that's not a bad thing!

It does grab your attention and I do love chickpeas and clever names for things. Always loved the Salvador Deli.

It's a great sign Anna Banana Kruchten,CRS,CRB,GRI  and it made it easy to find the restaurant which is in an area I did not know. Clever title, too, but appropriate given the cuisine.

No doubt Belinda Spillman with the big chickpea and the bright yellow. Definitely a standout.

Kathy Streib  - I can spend hours looking, and I have tens of thousands!! I loved the name.

Lisa Von Domek  me either. The restaurant itself was pretty small and low key.

Grant Schneider  - no, you are not likely to forget this restaurant/caterer. THey have been around since 2010 and the food truck I understand is Kosher!

They are definitely becoming more and more popular here Patricia Kennedy  and the variety of cuisines is so diverse.

Hi George Souto  I have gotten together with him twice, now, I believe - this meetup in 2014 and when he was here earlier this year.

Indeed Endre Barath, Jr.  - I know she was invited! Next time I am in Boston, perhaps, maybe in November 2018 at NAR!

They really do James Dray  We are so fortunate with the technology we have today!

Good point Sally K. & David L. Hanson I bet no one forgets once they see this sign. And it was so much fun to meet AR friends I know online but from so far away (yet my old stomping grounds).
