Hi! My name is Chambi! I know it’s a funny sounding nickname. My dear abuelita gave me this nickname after watching me eat a whole tray of plantains. “Oh my! You are a Chambi!” She yelled in laughter. I was born and raised in El Salvador, a land filled with wonders, lore, and yummy food. Nowadays I call Philly my beloved home! I love Philly. I still remember biting into my first cheesesteak or eating a slice bigger than my head at Lorenzo’s. Holy moly, that’s a big pizza pie! This love for food made me want to introduce all the magical yummy foods from my homeland to the masses like pupusas, tamales, and fried yucca. Yummy! Get in my Chambi belly! Hot steaming masa corn tortillas smashed together with beans and cheese, seitan and cheese, or loroco. Yummy, yummy, I betcha you can’t just eat one! Maybe you can beat my record of 20 in one sitting! I think not, señor. Plus, savory tamales wrapped in banana leaves with yummy plant based meats with olives and chickpeas hidden deep inside the wondrous caverns of a super yummy tamale. Oh my! Yucca frites are my favorite crispy treats made out of yucca plants. Let me tell you a secret since we are amigos! Put the yucca fries on top of your pupusas! Wow! A tasty Chambi treat! I still bet ya can’t beat my record! Oh I have to tell you about our pan de Chambi and sweet treats but holy moly! I am starving! Come on amigos, let’s get some Chambi Munchies! I’II explain our other treats in our menu!
We have made it our mission to take the nostalgic foods we love and make them all VEGAN! That’s right! No animal products are used in anything we make! Will it taste good you ask? Yes! In some cases better than the original! We only use fresh ingredients and make as much from scratch as possible. We cook from the memory of all the delicious food our Abuelita cooked, born and raised in El Salvador. We guarantee our foods will be as flavorful as delicious, bichos!
We are a multi-cultural family run business. We firmly believe that nobody should have to decide between cruelty and culture. We see a lack of vegan choices when visiting our long time favorite traditional eateries. Being left with sweet memories and empty bellies inspired us to recreate our favorite foods without the use of animal products. Whatever your reason for seeking plant based alternatives we are committed to taste and quality in everything we make. We know you will be able to taste the love in every bite!
