Looking for Pocketless Pitas

caphill2320 Jun 5, 2007 08:17 AM

Just got the new issue of Cook's Illustrated and I'm dying to make the lamb gyro sandwiches featured in it. The recipe recommends, and I prefer the pocketless pitas, but I want to know where I can get the best. The anemic looking ones at Whole Foods are not cutting it for me.

I would like to stay in DC and I heard of a middle eastern store on New Mexico in the medical building with the Starbucks...do they carry them? Anywhere else I can pick them up? Rockville is also an option since it's near the office...

    I get them at the Lebanese Taverna market off Lee Highway in Arlington.

      Wegmans sells the same brand that Lebanese Taverna Market sells....for less. I eat them all the time. But I guess that doesn't help caphill in DC.

      Trader Joe's has them. And I don't remember them being anemic...just make sure you check the sell by date. I love TJs but have bought some dry breads there that were too close to the sell date.

        I am pretty sure Asadur's has them. This is located in the shopping center at the intersection of Randolph and Nebel Street.

          Where exactly? In that strip mall that has a Staples? That would be the southwest corner?

            Yetka Market on Rville Pike next to Joe's Noodle House behind the On The Border mexican place. Or Bob's in Ritchie Center in Rockville.
