I’m so excited to share about my recent dining experience at the casual vegetarian restaurant Pita Pan. Pita Pan (how cute is the name?!) has been around for a while but only recently opened a new outlet at the very convenient Marina Square. After reading so many raving reviews about Pita Pan from fellow bloggers and instagrammers, I finally made some time to pay it a visit. And boy am I glad I did! I really love Mediterranean food and Pita Pan didn’t disappoint!
Just a little intro about Pita Pan which I lifted off their website:
“Pita Pan is a casual vegetarian dining experience, not fast food. Our Mediterranean inspired, vegetarian dishes are made to order, using the freshest ingredients, right in front of your eyes! We serve the most delicious homemade Pita Breads, Falafels, Middle Eastern Salads and many other unique Mediterranean dishes. The food is 100% vegetarian and most of the menu items are dairy-free.”
I decided to go for the pocket sandwiches made using their homemade Pita bread since it was the recommended item on the menu. You start off by choosing your main ingredient – either crispy Chickpea n or Veggie Shawarma (soy based mock meat)- followed by adding different toppings and sauces as much as your pocket can hold!
Naturally, I chose the Chickpea Falafels! Here’s my yummeh pocket pita – filled with Garlic Tahini, Hummus, corn, salsa, red cabbage, eggplant, onions, and carrots. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! The Falafels were tasty and crispy while the toppings and sauces complimented it so well. Right now I’m actually feeling hungry as I’m typing this post =X
My Bf had the Veggie Shawarma – which he preferred probably because it tasted like meat. I’m not a huge fan of mock meat but I guess the shawarma is a good option for hardcore carnivores. You can also choose to make your pita pocket a meal – comes with fries and a drink. If i had one criticism it would be – don’t order the Ice tea. It was pure syrup and very little water.
Being a typical kaypo Singaporean, I also scanned the restaurant to check out what everyone else was having and ended up ordering a Shakshuka to share. A Shakshuka is basically a dish of eggs poached in sauces and vegetables and served in a sizzling hot pan. We ordered the Green Shashuka which had baby spinach, basil, spring onions and paparika…but we omitted the eggs and Halloumi. Bf thought it was OKAY and felt it could be more flavourful …and I guess that’s why the original dish had cheese and eggs to balance out the flavours. I on the other hand quite liked it! Sorry I couldn’t snap a picture of this because eating the pocket sandwich got really messy and I didn’t want to dirty my camera haha. You can check out how it looks from thier website here
After I posted a picture of my pita pocket on Instagram, a friend commented that the food at Pita Pan was quite expensive. While there are cheaper vegan options around, I personally find that the price point is decent for the quality of food you get. And it’s very filling too since you’re loading up on carbs and protein!
I have many fav vegan places to eat at but I always end up at the same one or two places like Real Foods because it’s convenient and centrally located….but now, I have a new option and you’re gonna see me there often. Very often!
So head down to Pita Pan if you haven’t already done so and show them some love ❤
