Fluffy pita anywhere?
Where can I find thick moist and fluffy pita around here? I live in Bedstuy but would be willing to bike ride to the good pita.
my post disappeared, there goes again..I hate when that happens!!
Queens Kosher Pita
68-38 Main St, Queens, NY 11367, Kew Gardens Hills
The fluffiest pita I've had, and they supply Hapisgah, good Israeli restaurant on Union Turnpike. Might be worth going there for the lunch special, and getting some salads to go, great falafel there nice and green, and good spicy fried eggplant salad, ----
The other pita is Pita Express which lots of places including Carmel sell. They are in Brooklyn somewhere, but I find their pita to mold very fast, maybe it's the plastic bag, who knows?
When I get the Queens Pita, and especially from takeout from Hapisgah, I take it form the paper bag and transfer to a ziploc and it's good the next day to have with the leftoever salads.
Lots of Israeli's really like the Queens pita and it passes their muster. Queens Pita is the same shopping center as Amalya and Super Sol.
if you're looking for a place in brooklyn, i'd recommend pita sababa on king's highway and about east fourth st. the pita's definitely fluffy and for whatever it's worth, the only kind my 6-year old will eat (he turns his nose up at the kind at damascus). pita sababa is kosher so it closes early on friday and is closed on saturdays.
I can think of three places in Brooklyn that make them fresh. There's Bedouin Tent on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Fatoosh on Hicks between Atlantic and State St in Brooklyn Heights and Tutt Cafe further down Hicks in the Fruit Streets, also in the Heights. I prefer Fatoosh, but if you're on a bike, it shouldn't be too much trouble to compare.
