Many world cuisines have developed a hand-held food form, such as the Mediterranean pita and the Middle Earth lava pop. Hush hunger on the go with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of stuffed pitas and drinks at the Pita Pit on 98th Street Northwest.
A self-described "proudly Canadian, no b.s. place to eat," the Pita Pit conquers hunger with an always-fresh army of pitas, salads, and smoothies. Wraps begin with either a plain white or whole-wheat pita before customers choose from 15 vegetable toppings and more than 15 sauces, including tzatziki and ranch, based on their personal preference and horoscope for that day. Small pita wraps ($3.99+) can contain epic heaps of familiar deli cuts such as black-forest ham and turkey or can be packed with Mediterranean staples such as gyro meat ($6.69 for a large), hummus ($5.99), or falafel ($6.29). After chomping their way through pita territory, patrons can soothe parched palates by trying one of the Pita Pit's fruit smoothies ($4.75), such as the antioxidant-packed five-berry smoothie.
Pita Pit’s sandwich artisans arm themselves with fresh produce each morning as they battle the common assumption that healthful food is never delicious. They customize each fresh-made pita and salad with 15 veggie options and more than 15 sauces to dazzle taste buds during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. To quench thirsts, they blend myriad fruits into smoothies that are more refreshing than diving into a giant smoothie, complementing tender roast beef and spicy buffalo chicken wrapped in low-carb pitas.
