The Pita Pit is closed.
mmm-yoso!!! is a blog about food and you get to vicariously enjoy-or not- what Kirk and/or his Friends ate. Today, once more, it is Cathy talking about a small meal she had.
Yep, Cathy here. Kirk is still gone. You get me and a meal, again.
So, anyhow, if you own a home in San Diego County and don't have an escrow account, you have to pay your Real Estate Tax to the County Assessor's office. If you actually drive to the Office, this place is in the plaza right next door. It is new and a franchise. Editor's Note: There is a location on College Aveneue near SDSU and also one on Mission Boulevard in the beach area, according to the website link below. Cathy's Note: It was new to me.
The Pita Pit- "Open and Rollin' " it says on the door.
This is a copy of the fax menu.
Kind of a Subway sandwich shop with pita (white or wheat) or put all the toppings onto lettuce and make it a salad.
Standard toppings include: shredded lettuce, romaine, spinach, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumbers, pickles, black olives, pineapple, pepperocini, sprouts, mushrooms and jalapenos.
Cheese choices are: Cheddar, American Swiss, Feta and Parmesan.
Sauces are: Cesar, Tzatziki, ranch, spicy vinaigrette, mayo, BBQ, sour cream, hot sauce, teriyaki, catsup, mustard (yellow, honey or Dijon), salsa, horseradish Dijon and chipotle.
The various meat pitas to choose from are: gyros, turkey, Black Forest ham, roast beef, chicken breast, bacon, chicken souvlaki and tuna . Pretty much any combination is available. Prices are around $6.25.
For an added charge you can get hummus, babaganoush, double meat or double cheese.
My only mistake was treating the pita with gyros like it was a pita with gyros.
You can see it in the white bread here, not as stuffed as the whole wheat chicken souvlaki.
I only wanted gyros with feta, onion, tomato and tzatziki and that was what I got. The meat and also the sauce was kind of dry: the pita bread had a wonderful fresh flavor though, as did the meat. I should have chosen more toppings. The meat was flavorful, but not juicy. It was pre-sliced thin and fried until warm and almost crispy, so no juiciness that sometimes happens with an unevenly cut off the spit piece of meat was evident.
The sandwich was, however, not sparse in the amount of meat on it. Very filling.
I suppose I complain because I compare.
The Mister got the chicken souvlaki with feta, lettuce, tomatoes, green pepper, cucumber and the "secret" sauce (which is a spicy vinaigrette). This was an excellent sandwich that was full, moist and tasty.
I will go back, but will more or less think of the food here as sandwiches in a bread pocket rather than a pita, per se. Despite the name above the door.
