Greetings food fans. Let’s talk about the new food place that everyone is buzzing about: Chefhyve (pronounced chef-hive).

Chefhyve’s owner, Ala Munzer Barghouti, explained to me what Chefhyve is all about.
“It’s a food hall where you can watch local chefs prepare an endless variety of cuisines from all over the world.”

Our Renfrew-Collingwood location features a Mediterranean food bar, artisan salads, gourmet fish and chips and a variety of desserts including a full waffle bar.

“Everything at Chefhyve is locally sourced and fresh. The only thing in the freezer here is ice cream.”

After a delightful conversation with Ala, I decided upon the falafal salad, which includes handmade falafel, spinach, chopped iceberg, hummus, seasonal hummus (carrot), seasonal pickles, spicy olives, tomato onion, cucumber, pita crisps, tahina dressing ($16.75).

Also that day, for the ol’ accomplice, I ordered the lingcod fish and chips: fresh wild lingcod served with fresh-cut chips and homemade tartar sauce ($14.95).

For dessert, a slice of raspberry white chocolate cheesecake ($8.95).

Everything was out-of-this-world amazingly good, especially my falafal salad.

I highly recommend that you investigate Ala’s Chefhyve where fresh, local and gourmet all come together.

You can read more on the Chefhyve.ca website, phone for pick-up, or get their goodness delivered by Skipthedishes, Ubereats or Doordash. Bon appetit.
