Victor Bouzide founded Nuba in 2003 with a desire to spread the goodness of his grandmother’s cooking. He did this in a small 15-seat restaurant on Hastings Street which served our now famous plates and pita wraps. Every day he was up before dawn (and still is) to pick the best ingredients from the produce depots. In 2006, Ernesto Gomez arrived in Vancouver with extensive international hospitality and business experience and the drive to create something great in Vancouver. He began his relationship with Nuba, like many of our staff do, as a customer. Ernesto loved what Victor was doing and they created a partnership that combined their rich experience and talents.
