Since moving to a job in the NE last year, I've been eating regularly at the Village Pita Bakery. The usual order is a meat pie and a spinach-feta pie. It ties for my fave cheap lunch spot near work (the other being Pho Xuan on 36th St.) I buy the pies to take home but I’d say they’re 50 per cent better when you eat them hot from oven – or whatever warm thing they got goin' in the back room. You can also find the old fashioned "flatbread" – the paper-thin bread that was always served with a meal at my Lebanese grandfather’s house.
In addition to the great food, the entertainment factor kicks in over the noon-hour when the throngs of kids from the school next door descend on VPB. It gets noisy and busy faster than you can say fatayer. But the owners are patient and keep a separate line for adults.
I tried the donair place (Babylon?) across the parking lot but wasn’t too jazzed. I’d be interested in any others’ experiences at the other eateries in Short Pants plaza.
