fresh pita bread in the East Village?
- Jating Aug 11, 1999 11:42 AM
Some people have recommended a few Middle Eastern
restaurants in the East Village to me, but I was
wondering if anyone knows of any good Middle Eastern
bakeries down there? I'm mainly looking for a place to
get some pita bread to chow on at home.

I had lunch here today with my wife Julie. In a word WOW! Julie opted for the Ouzi silky puff pastry filled with chicken, special herbs (they wouldn't tell me what they were) basamati rice and peas.Nice little delayed heat action going on behind the upfront flavors.GIGANTIC portion. I guess it must be tomorrows lunch. I had a bowl of Lentil soup very delicately spiced nice and thick. It could have been a little warmer.Then I had Pitza/ lamb,tomato,parsley and special herbs again."Do I taste cinnamon"? No the chef shook his head. Finally I guess he could see I was smitten he said it was a special lemon spice mixture.Well in any event it was mouth watering good. Nice thin crust and just the right amount of spice.I also had a turkish beer. That was ok. Excellent little restaurant.2 glasses of house white, and a turkish beer along with everything else cost $34.00.
