A New Place To Try in Pelham - Lambo's

This newly opened spot at 232 Fifth Avenue sells chicken and lamb pitas , among other variations. I had the chicken pita (5.50). It reminded me a lot of my favorite Pakistani food cart in Manhattan. The pita was huge, with lettuce, tomato, and sliced red onion on the bottom, piled with tender cubes of spicy marinated chicken. You get two containers of sauce, one is hot and the white sauce will cool it down. Love that white sauce!

The postcard-style menu shows rice with chicken, presumably without the pita. You can get that with lamb too. Lambo's Mix combines the two meats. There's a vegetarian falafel and a "Hero" too.

Eat it there, or take it home. (There's a cooler, with drinks.) I took mine home and ate it with a dish towel tied around my neck. How even to bite the thing? But I managed and I'll go back.

p.s. It was doubled wrapped with foil and was still warm when I got home.
