Had lunch here the other day.

Tried a small BABA GHANNOUJ and a LAMB KABAB sandwich.

BABA GHANNOUJ is mashed charcoal grilled egg plant blended with tahini, parsley and olive oil. Served as cold dip with pita bread. It was good, but I was looking forward to more hearty eggplant flavor. Portion for $1.50 is huge, probably could make a meal of this.

The lamb kebab sandwich is minced lamb/spices, grilled, then put in a pita w/shred lettuce, tomato. It is served w/two small bowls, one consisting of hot chili sauce and the other is tahini. I was again disappointed at the blandness of the meat, I almost thought he had put on some ground beef kebabs rather than lamb. The rest of the ingredients were very fresh though. Sandwich was $3.

An observation, almost all “whites” were ordering the combination plates which consisted of a combination of Shish Kabab, Shawarma, and Kifta Kabab served with salad, rice pilaff, and hot Pita bread. Most “ethnics” were ordering the falafel sandwiches and shawarma sandwiches.

Next time I’ll try the falafel or shawarma sandwich for sure.

Pita House is on Roselle Rd, located ½ mile south of the intersection of Roselle & Schaumburg Rd. More info on website below.
