Our founders grew up overseas and had a different idea of comfort food from their friends in the US. Chirba Chirba grew from a nostalgia for our own childhood food cravings. Here in the states, there simply weren’t that many options for authentic dumpling goodness, and adulthood meant we also had the drunchies… So, the OG Chirbas decided to bring their favorite dumplings to the NC streets, and Chirba Chirba was born. Since their start, Chirba Chirba has grown to two trucks (and a restaurant coming soon!) under owner Nate Adams and has been awarded Best of the Triangle while dominating food truck rodeos and events year after year since 2011. When you see one of the big yellow Chirba trucks pull up, you already know, the dumplings are here!
“Chirba Chirba” literally means “Eat eat!” in Mandarin Chinese. The expression embodies a very warm and hospitable feeling, especially to a friend or guest. When someone is offering you our amazing dumplings, what they are saying is: “This is so delicious and it makes me extremely happy to see you enjoy it, so please, eat!”
Chirba Chirba prides itself on using quality ingredients and hand pleating to create its authentic Chinese style dumplings, sides, and sauces… all inspired by our globetrotting team. Seasonal dumpling specials and everyday favorites make any trip to a Chirba truck a foodie approved experience!
