Pita Hot

1343 E. Chapman Ave. Fullerton, CA 92831 | Fullerton | 714-449-0100

Location Description:

Pita Hota is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Fullerton that operates under the guise of mainstream tastes. Sure, you can order your pitas, kebabs, and falafels, all delicious and familiar--but displayed prominently on the menu are the treats that have yet to cross over. Zaatar, that intoxicating mix of spices and olive oil, comes presented as a wrap, as does the tart labneh. Breakfast brings giant bowls of foul, fava beans enlivened with parsley and sumac; it works great on chilly mornings. The appetizers innocuously titled “red cabbage” and “cucumber yogurt salad,” while true to advertising, blast your senses with tartness. And Pita Hot remains the only restaurant in Orange County that makes mesebaha, a type of hummus spiked with whole chickpeas, jalapeños and garlic that’s as powerful as it sounds.
