Few weeks ago, I discovered a hidden falafel spot in the heart of Makati. Two Chickpeas serves vegan and vegetarian friendly food within reach. It features falafel pockets and bowls with several toppings to choose from such as quinoa salad, cabbage salad, pickled basil beets and hummus. They also serve side items such as gyro fries and turmeric rice.
Upon entering the vicinity, you can smell the freshly prepared food from their kitchen. You’ll be greeted immediately by the helpful and accommodating staff. I really love the relaxing and comforting vibe of the restaurant.
This is the current menu as updated last April 2018:
Here’s my take on each dish I tried during my visit:
The Falafel Bowl was freshly prepared. I picked out quinoa salad, sweet potato fries, turmeric rice, hummus and tomato cucumber salad as my sides. In every order of the bowl, you can select five free toppings to go with your five falafel balls. The falafel balls were not dry. I suggest you eat it immediately. My verdict? A HIT for me.
The Falafel Pocket was so good. It was my favorite during my visit. It comes with five falafel balls in a pita bread. You can add hot sauce or garlic sauce on it. My score? An ACE!
I tried the Seitan Gyro of Two Chickpeas. It was made from seasoned and seared seitan, french fries, tzatziki, lettuce and tomato wrapped in a flat bread. How did it fare to me? A HIT.
