EAT: Eat a Pita

I wish I had known about this place from way before. Who knew that such a charming place existed in L.A.?

Eat a Pita is a Middle Eastern fast food stand but what makes it special is the outdoor covered patio dining area complete with a water fountain in the middle. The soothing sound of water trickling provides the soundtrack to your dining experience. It felt like I was in Italy, where water fountains, a common fixture, constantly tickle your ears. There are plenty of tables under the ivy covered canopy-thingy, making this place an excellent venue for groups.

I ordered the falafel pita wrap, which was a little too salty. Nothing beats the awesome falafel that Moishes serves up at the Fairfax Farmers' Market which is just a few blocks down the street. But the ambience is way better at Eat a Pita. When you enter, you feel like you've been transported to some verdant hideaway far, far away.

Other food options are beef/chicken/lamb shwarma, kebobs, various salads, and pita wraps all under $10. You order at the window, pick up your food, and snag a table as close to the fountain.

Speaking of pitas, guess what I just found out the acronym PITA means? Hint: it involves the word "ass."
