Happy 2016! It’s a new year and with that come resolutions to get healthy, which none of you have had any problems keeping up to this point in early/mid-January. But in case you’re strapped for a few ideas on what to eat to help you stay the course, allow us to reacquaint you with some of our more popular dishes that are appetizing and packed full of nutrition! Mjadra Mjadra is a dish that’s steeped in history and can actually be traced back to middle ages. Simple and delicious, it consists of green lentils, sliced onions, brown rice, jalapenos, and a mixture of middle eastern spices. We stew them all together and then top it off with crispy onions and avocado. It’s one of our most loved dishes and, conveniently, also one of our healthiest as it was recently named one of the best dishes you can order in Vancouver by the St Paul’s Hospital Healthy Heart Program. So next time you’re at Nuba, be sure to give Mjadra a try and experience firsthand why it’s been making people healthy and happy for 1000 years!
Falafel Our falafel comes from a secret recipe that has been passed down for generations. Made daily with fresh, organic chickpeas, fava beans, veggies and spices, it is loaded with nutrition and will give you the energy you need to make it through a long day.
Happy New Year, and we trust everyone's resolutions are going well four days into 2016. Just remember Nuba is here to help with healthy and delicious offerings from our menu, which is loaded with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, to help you stay the course.

Fattoush Salad Our trademark salad. Made with organic greens, tomato, cucumber, green onion, chickpeas and carrots with a garlic lemon-herb dressing and toasted pita chips, our Fattoush salad is healthy and filling. We recommend enjoying it with one of our fresh-squeezed juices.
Lentil Soup As a side or on its own, you can't how wrong with our vegan lentil soup. Not only will it warm you up on a cold winter day, the lentil is pretty much the perfect food from a taste and health standpoint.
