The 983 Helmcken Street fast-casual spot has seating for 30 guests and offers the same standard menu as the Gastown location.

This consists of a bowl or wrap with three scoops of hummus, a grain (saffron rice, chickpea rice, or bulgur wheat), proteins (meatballs, sirloin cubes, chicken kabob, or garlic chicken), veggie proteins (cauliflower, lemon potato, mushroom, or Mediterranean veggies), and 12 types of superfoods that customers can add to their meal.

Balila offers patrons nine different flavours of hummus including original, garlic, pomegranate, fresh pepper, and walnut, pesto, olive, beetroot, yam, kale, and spicy.

Known for their Armenian sausage, the Balila team told Daily Hive people can expect amazing specials just like the ones at their Gastown spot too.
