Pita Jungle – Old Town Pasadena


Pita Jungle is on my personal list of ‘Best Values” in Pasadena. They serve you fresh, delicious Mediterranean eats at incredibly reasonable prices. Happy hour is offered every day, even weekends, from 3-6pm and 9pm to close. Draft beers and house wines are $3 and well cocktails and margaritas are $4. They have a happy hour food menu as well with small tapas, but my opinion is that the main courses from the regular menu are a better value and more filling. I do however, always start with a $2.00 order of Dolmades when I’m there during happy hour. The order is 2 pieces, cut in half, and it’s a great starter to get your tastes buds going.

My personal favorite for an entree is the Turkey Pesto Wrap (but I substitute chicken breast for turkey). The wrap is huge, enough for 2 people to share, has a very generous portion of fresh grilled chicken breast, Swiss cheese, pesto sauce, grilled tomatoes and onions, is wrapped in Lavosh bread and served with a side Greek salad. It’s perfectly delicious as is, but I like to add a little Sriracha sauce mixed with Greek dressing for an extra kick.


[Chicken Pesto Wrap $9.99]

Not quite sure why this place has a 3.5 star rating on Yelp, if I was rating I’d give 5 stars. The value is incredible, ingredients are fresh as can be, and service is friendly and swift. Maybe people just haven’t tried the right menu items. Try my order and see if you agree!
