The nearest Pita Pit is less than 200m away from my house; yet until this day I’ve never made it there. Today was a Sunday night on which the quick walk and the prospect of not having to make dinner seemed tempting, and so we finally went.
I heard heard that Pita Pit was “basically like Subway, but with pitas instead of subs” – and in a way, that’s very true. From the green billboards to the ads of supposed “fresh eating”, the 2 places seemed very similar. Same concept, too: you walk in, choose your size and kind of bread, choose your main topping, and then have a variety of vegetables, extra toppings, and sauces available.
One significant difference to Subway though: this place seemed much more vegan friendly. There are a total 4 vegan options, and they are clearly marked as such on the menu – Hummus, Babaganoush, Falafel and Garden. Check out their menu here. I chose the 6 inch Babaganoush on whole wheat bread with lots of spinach, tomatoes, onion and black olives (love black olives), and bean sprouts. The whole thing cost $3.79, which I deemed acceptable.
Definitely good choice for a quick Sunday night dinner, maybe not great if you’re very hungry or needing some protein (shame, no tofu or tempeh in sight).
