Garbanzo Healthy Kitchen Recently Opened in Ventura and Subsequently Closed

Update 12/31/14: Garbanzo Healthy Kitchen became Laffa Mediterranean Grill in August and since then appears to have closed in the latter part of the year.

March 30, 2014: Social media does work in many ways, including, of course, getting the word out. For example, yesterday, I noticed a new Twitter follower, Garbanzo Healthy Kitchen.

Being the curious type, that prompted me to check out the Garbanzo Healthy Kitchen website at to check out what they offer. Located at 1780 S Victoria Ave. Suite D, Ventura in what I believe used to be Giovanni's Pizza, in the suite next to Fatburger, Garbanzo offers a $7.25 "Create Your Plate" meal with one entree, one side, two salads and pita bread. Entrees on the menu include meatballs, falafel, shawarma, schnitzel, spicy chicken, pesto chicken, stuffed eggplant and stuffed mini bell peppers. I also see hummus, tahini, babaganoush and other Mediterranean type salads.

Sounds pretty good to me as I'm a big fan of this type of food! One of these days I'll make it over there. Garbanzo Healthy Kitchen is open 7 days a week and their phone is 805.654.7044.
