In 1977, military scientists invented pita pockets as a means of preventing humans from devouring pants pockets. Curb your pants-eating proclivities with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of stuffable pita pockets and drinks at the Ajax Pita Pit on Bayly Street West.
The Ajax Pita Pit provides sustenance in the form of decadently stuffed pockets of joy, with fillings spanning a spectrum of vegetarian and carnivorous eats. Along with 9-inch regular pitas, the sandwichery provides 6-inch “petitas” for jaws with rusty hinges. Fuel up with a gyro ($5.99, $4.49 petita), or unhinge your jaw and try the Dagwood Club with turkey, ham, and roast beef ($7.09, $5.59 petita). Vegetarians can also find delicious items on the menu, such as the falafel ($5.99) or hummus ($5.09) pitas. If your nonconformist stomach refuses to be satiated by any of the menu items, build your own pita and choose from a potpourri of stuffings, including pickles, mushrooms, jalapeños, pineapple, croutons, tzatziki, barbecue sauce, or ranch dressing. Smoothies, such as the five-berry or the strawberry kiwi omega-3, provide the fruitful river on which a pita may sail smoothly to port ($3.79). The Ajax Pita Pit is open seven days a week, making it a perfect pit stop after an uninspired day at the office or a weekend of Narwhal farming off Nunavut.
