Tabbuli Grill presents, “What is a pita?”

If you have never really tried Mediterranean cuisine, you may be wondering about some of the items on the menu at Tabbuli Grill. Today, we are talking pitas! According to Wikipedia, a pita “is a round pocket bread widely consumed in many¬†Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines. It is prevalent in Greece, the Balkans, the Levant, the Arabian Peninsula and Turkey.”

Pita bread is round, but puffs up when cooking due to the steam created while the bread is baking.  After the bread cools and flattens, the bread can be cut open to reveal a pocket in the middle, which is perfect for stuffing with any number of toppings.

At Tabbuli Grill, we love pitas and have a variety for our guests to choose from. And, whether you’ve never had a pita, or you’ve tried them several times, Tabbuli Grill has eight different pitas to try – including beef, lamb, shrimp, chicken, falafel, kofta, ‘you choose’ and a gyro pita.
