Sherman's Food Adventures: Gourmet Pita

Gourmet Pita

It's been pointed out to me that I've been eating way too much Asian food lately and upon closer inspection, it's absolutely true. However, I am finding it increasingly difficult to not eat Asian food in the GVRD. This is especially true in North Delta. Struggling to find non-Asian food, I decided to go back to an ol' standby, Gourmet Pita. Yes, it's not the most sexiest of choices to eat and blog about; but trust me, it's good eating.

Located in the same plaza as the Shell gas station on 112th and 84th, Gourmet Pita is not merely just a take out place. The restaurant itself is quite spacious and the seating is comfortable. In addition to pitas, there are salads, soups and smoothies. However, I'd stick with the pitas since this is what the place is all about. Funny thing happened when I asked if I could take some pictures. The staff looked extremely perplexed as they questioned, "Blog? What's a blog?" I tried to explain that I blog about restaurants on the internet and that still didn't seem to erase the confused looks on their faces. I think they finally just let me take pictures because they thought I was nuts or something.

Anyways, there is a wide selection of pitas ranging from Tandoori Chicken to Chicken Teriyaki. The prices range from $3.55 for a 7" Veggie to $6.98 for a 9" Chicken Breast. I've had a few of the pitas before and all of them have been pretty good. The freshness is what makes the pitas good - the meats and veggies are fresh. I chose the Tandoori chicken (it's my favourite), and picked my veggies and got Tzatziki sauce. Tzatziki sauce? On Tandoori chicken??? Yes, as odd as it may sound, it tastes good. The chicken was tender and there was just enough spice for flavour. The large pita is quite large, it is more than enough food for lunch. However, for the purposes of this post, I ordered the Chicken Noodle Soup as well. Let me say that I regret ordering the soup. First of all, it was stone cold. Second, the veggies were crunchy. I don't know about you, but I don't fancy crunchy soup. However, it did taste good, not being overly salty and the chicken was tender. But, as I said before, you come for the pitas at Gourmet Pita, nothing else.

The Good:
- Fresh food at decent prices
- Nice selection of pitas
- Comfortable dining room

The Bad:
- Don't eat anything else but the pitas
