Pita Pocket: Get In There

Pita Pocket, a restaurant that offers vegetarian and other dishes, if given the chance, can change hearts, minds and stomachs. I am not a vegetarian. The hardest thing to do is to write a review on food you are not completely familiar.

Burgers and fries are what I like most often. I find I sometimes have to expose my palette to new taste and experiences. I believe it was necessary to visit Pita Pocket as the service, location and the cuisine wins hearts, helps them, pleases stomachs and saves money.

The vegetarian food that I know a little about is the falafel. It is hearty, made of chick peas and has seasoning that pleases the palette before it goes to please your stomach. I was in mood for this dish today. I was told about Pita Pocket and would decide to visit.

You receive a greeting as you enter the restaurant. I would order the falafel platter and two falafel sandwiches, for two other people. Before, I would always order the falafel as a sandwich. I think I am at place where I can expand my taste and try the falafel platter. This comes with eight falafel balls, fresh salad, a generous serving of hummus and a pita, which I will talk about more.

I would also taste the Babaganoush, which is hearty, smooth and sassy, creamy and delicious. I was also given the grape leaf side dish. I would initially envision this side as a leaf someone would take out of a bag of cold salad mix and hand to me. This was a terrible assumption.

The grape leaf is full, fat and compact. The side has delicious seasonings and meatiness, which is hard to describe unless you ask to try it. I would also taste Halva and one of the drinks they offer at the restaurant called the Hibiscus Drink.

The Hibiscus Drink has a hint of tart but it was so very sweet and light on the palette. The Halva really sent me to heaven. I was told it was made of sesame seeds but it has a consistency and taste similar to a sweet a desirable peanut treat.

I have to come back for the Halva though I came for the falafel platter. It all starts with salad.

The salad at Pita Pocket is fresh cut. It blends the sweet, salty and crunchy together to make an interesting flavor to accompany the rest of the meal. I know it includes cucumbers, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers and raw cabbage, which is actually so good in the combination.

It is as clean as the restaurant itself, which is very clean. The hummus at Pita Pocket is light, smooth, creamy and not tart but flavorful enough to mesh with the other components on this particular platter, for example the hummus on the pita.

It melts on your tongue and offers you to take in other flavors. For example, the falafel balls made this meal. I once would have mistaken the falafel for a kind of ground meat seasoned and fried to perfection.

It is crisp on the outside and soft, well seasoned and firm on the inside. When I was told that falafels were made of chick peas I found a new respect for vegetarian cuisine. The seasoning was just right and the chickpeas were hearty and filling at the same time. Eight of them are enough to have you sit back and relax.

In The End

Pita Pocket has taken me by surprise. The pita by Pita Pocket is hot, airy, light, tasty and blissful. From beginning to the end, the experience at Pita Pocket has sent me to a good place but the food truly took me to new heights. I think I will try the Shawarma, which I believe is the pita with chicken, at Pita Pocket on my next visit.

Update 8/9/2013

I would visit Pita Pocket recently to get a taste of something at Pita Pocket. In a vertical broiler, golden brown, glistening is chicken.

The chicken easily leaves the rack on the vertical broiler. Two warm pitas capture delicious, elegant hummus. Between fresh salad, a delicious drink and the sandwich, a Shawarma Sandwich, this meal becomes my new favorite.

The chicken from the vertical broiler is not greasy but has delicious seasoning, is hearty and is simply good. I have only had one Shawarma sandwich, at a reasonable price, I am willing to get another very soon.

For more information on Pita Pocket, visit or visit the restaurant, located at 582 Cottman Avenue in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania , and try their wonderful cuisine.
