Falafel Pita

Falafel Pita

Did you know that it is basically impossible to take a decent picture of a pita?  I took two photos of it when I got it, but there were boring, because it was just sort of laying on that Pita Pit paper and you couldn’t see anything except the wrap.  So I at some of it and took this picture, which came out a bit blurry.  It’s hard to take a picture of something you can only hold so far away from yourself.  And you still can’t really tell what’s inside it.  Pitas are not photogenic.

I’m a big Pita Pit fan.  There are four in the greater Orlando area, so I was always able to get my pita fix.  Aside from Ali Baba, it’s the only downtown vegan-friendly eatery open for late night dining, as far as I’m aware.  And when you get done belting your heart out at Lonnie’s, and all your omni friends are munching down on nasty hot dogs from the guy on the street corner, you can head over to Pita Pit for some veg-a-licious awesomeness in a wrap, and your friends will be jealous.

I pretty much always get the falafel pita with hummus.  Falafel is good.  Pita Pit has pretty good falafel.  Eat it.  Then I add whatever veggies suit my fancy on that particular day and some secret sauce, which is the only vegan condiment that seems to be any good on this particular combination of things (mustard? I don’t think so).  The people working in Pita Pit are always super nice, but there’s not a lot of dining space.  There are but a few tiny tables, and it can get crowded after last call.  If you’re enjoying a pita during your lunch hour, you might very well be one of the only people in the place, which is fine by me.

I will definitely be back to Pita Pit.  I’ve been eating there for years, and they continue to be a reliable standby in my mental library of vegan eateries.  And every pita is a little different if you change your veggies and toppings, so it’s not like eating the same thing every time you go.  An added bonus: delivery!!
