I have always preferred other cuisines whenever it comes on Mediterranean food, but this time we decided to have a shot at this joint called Pita House in Lombard,IL.
Very comfortably located at Roosevelt Road this one was recommended by Foodie colleague from Zomato Meet.
As we entered there was no crowd as on weekdays people prefers takeout. A decent place with ample seating space and self-service.
If you are looking for a restaurant with luxury dining, great interior then please avoid this place, you will be disappointed.
We ordered Chicken Shawarma pocket, Hummus with pita bread & falafel combo.
Well, Hummus tasted really good while pita bread served was soft and fresh, very much authentic.
Vegetarian Falafel Plate- Falafel was really delicious with strong flavours, crispy served with the rice, lettuce and tomatoes. The combo also includes pita bread & sauces, sufficient for 2 people. Chicken Shawarma Pocket was average in taste with lost flavors on the way to our table. The chicken was tasteless, the seasonings were missing..not like the one I have tasted earlier.
For drinks we opted for Turkish coffee and Baklava in desserts. Baklava is a filo pastry sweet, filled with nuts & honey.
The combination of soft filo and crispy nuts was savory and very light. The coffee was as usual a bitter, concentrated drink but with no flavors & sensations. It was not at all near to what I have heard.
Overall, we liked this place, its worth a try for palatable Mediterranean meal especially Entrees.
My Rating for Pita Bread
