Ethnic Food Series: Pita Village

“Opa!” was our greeting as we walked into the Pita Village. This restaurant was a recommendation from Angie’s mom. Yes, her mom. I find the best places are the ones that are recommended through someone we know and mom usually knows best, right? So we headed to Dupont Road for some Greek food at the Pita Village. Before you can even walk up to the counter to order your food, you are immediately greeted by the workers shouting “Opa!”. After great consideration I chose to order the falafel and Angie got the original pouchy gyros. We devoured them! This was the first time I have ever had falafel, but was willing to step out of my comfort zone and try something a little different. It was three fried balls made of chickpeas with onions, spices, wrapped in a soft pita, with cucumbers, onions, ziki sauce and a side of hot red pepper bean sauce. Angie’s original gyros was as well delicious. Also wrapped in a soft pita, it was piled high with gyro meat, ziki sauce, lettuce, onion, and tomato. I definitely want to go back for more and try other items they offer. This time around we forgot to leave room for dessert. It was probably our biggest mistake because the baklava looked so delicious! This place was warm, casual atmosphere with great food. Who can beat that? The restaurant is family-owned and operated. They dish up authentic Greek food that has been passed down from their families. Stop in and check it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed. They do dine-in, carry-out and even catering. I challenge you to go out, change up your routine and try some of our local cuisine. Opa! Check out their website...
