Pita Tree is a casual dining restaurant which serves good quality and healthy Mediterranean food at affordable prices. The restaurant aims to offer diners great value for a delicious and wholesome Mediterranean meal with no frills.
All dishes are made from natural ingredients and nutritious superfoods such as sumac berries, barberries, tahini, pomegranate, yoghurt and saffron. Pita Tree also uses virgin olive oil in its dips and salads.
Pita Tree Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar has opened its first outlet in Boat Quay to serve customers who crave good quality, healthy Mediterranean food at prices that will not hurt one’s pockets.
Unlike Pita Tree Mediterranean Grilled Kebabs along Orchard Road, which is mostly a take-away kiosk, the latest offering from the team behind Persian restaurant Shabestan, is a full-service casual dining restaurant with an extensive menu and seating capacity of up to 50.
Chef Hany Mustafa Basyouni Gabr who heads Pita Tree’s kitchen, said: “The Mediterranean diet is known to be the world’s healthiest diet for good reasons. It uses ingredients that are rich in antioxidants, omega-3, low-fat protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber.
“Pita Tree is proud to bring these healthy choices to our customers and to let them know that healthy food doesn’t need to be bland and unexciting.”
At Pita Tree Mediterranean Kitchen & Bar, diners can choose from a wide variety of dishes ranging from appetisers, dips, salads, stews as well as grills and kebabs.
Mixed Dip Platter served with Pita bread
The restaurant’s dips and salads are made with virgin olive oil and its dishes are made with natural ingredients and nutritious superfoods such as sumac berries, barberries, tahini, pomegranate, yoghurt and saffron which boast various health benefits.
