Our history

We are Chakula, a vegan bistro with Levantine cuisine.
Our name means “food” in Swahili, an African language.
We chose this name because we want to share our love of different cultures and cuisines with our guests.

We started traveling with our food truck to festivals in 2008.
Since 2018 we have a bistro, first located in Freising and since spring 2022 in Erding.

Our concept

Our concept is simple: we offer fresh, healthy and delicious vegan dishes from the Levantine region.
This is the area around the Eastern Mediterranean, which includes countries like Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. 
 We make much of the food ourselves, without additives or flavor enhancers.
We value sustainability and environmental protection.

our services
