Pita Fresh in Yonkers or nearby?

Vielka Aug 7, 2013 05:38 AM


I'm making hummus for an event his weekend and would really love to have fresh wonderful pita or Syrian bread depending on where you are from. Any ideas of sources nearby? I know that there is a community near the Riverdale section of the Bronx, actually Yonkers, as many middle eastern restaurants have cropped up in recent years. Any ideas?

    Yaranush Middle Eastern Gourmet, 322 Central Ave
    White Plains, NY 10606 (www.yaranush.com) is the only place that I know of that sells a variety of pitas and breads.

      But they are unfortunately packaged. How about making the pita yourself. They are super simple to make.

          I think my favorite brand of pita available at Yaranush is packaged in a clear bag with blue trim and/or writing, I'm sorry I don't remember the name. Definitely better than your average pita. The owners husband is very nice and always makes good recommendations you can always consult him!

      Ta'aim in Hastings probably has good bread. They also have the best pre-made hummous I have ever tasted (which I got once at the Bronxville Farmer's Market).

        They still go to the Bronxville Farmer's Market. I saw them there a couple of weeks ago. I'll have to try the hummous!

          We picked up their basil hummus and also the roasted tomato and garlic hummus a couple of weeks ago, expensive but fantastic.
          Regarding pita/nan bread if it's the same as when they opened and they still make it in house the nan from Shiraz in Elmsford is delicious.

            I didn't see nan in Shiraz when I was there; is it frozen or fresh?

              What type of bread did they serve when you were there?

                I was talking about the market, not the restaurant, as I was assuming the OP was looking for bread she could get from a store

                  Oh ok...thanks for clarifying. I thought at one point in the thread we discussed getting it fresh from a restaurant. I have not been there recently but they used to serve the most addictive house made lavash. I don't specifically remember what they carried in the market.

            Just got back from the Bronxville Farmer's market and Ta'aim has a new Saffron Hummous. It's fantastic especially if you drizzle some spanish olive oil on it.

            They need to bring more bread though because they always run out by 1:00 or so.
