Pita the Great


Restaurants & Cafés


No prizes for guessing what the speciality is at this long-running Tameike-Sanno takeaway, which opened back in 1993. Pita the Great prepares its bread instore, and you'll notice customers surreptitiously brushing flour from their clothes while they wait for their orders to arrive. The shop's signature falafel sandwich (aka the ‘Big Pita') is a real gut-burster, filled with roughly-shaped patties that are fried to order, plus sauerkraut, salad, tahini and spicy sauce. It's a substantial (not to mention rather stodgy) meal, but you can pay an extra ¥100 to get it with an additional topping of fried potatoes, onion or hummus. Just be warned that the resulting concoction is liable to induce a food coma after you're finished eating it. Pita the Great's breads and sauces are also available for takeaway, and you'll find them on the shelves at import supermarket National Azabu in Hiroo.
