Pittabun, a new street food concept now open in Soho

mcith_pittabun.jpgPittabun is the third venture from Greek Chefs/Owners Georgianna Hiliadaki, Nikos Roussos and their UK partner Andreas Labridis, the person behind two-Michelin-starred Athens restaurant Funky Gourmet and Marylebone’s contemporary Greek OPSO.

Savoury and sweet hand-stretched stuffed pitta buns, sourced directly from Greece, are available alongside fresh salads and served on trays.

The kitchen team prepare the food behind a long, marble take away counter, fronted by an exposed brick wall. Past this, there’s a sit-down space with marble bench seating around the edge of the room, a central counter and stools dotted around. 

Pittabuns range from £7 to £12 and include the Sunday Roast Lamb Bunwith charcoaled slow cooked lamb shoulder, feta, roasted peppers, chips, lemon–oregano sauce and the Burger Bun with charcoaled beef short rib patty, bacon-onion topping and homemade tartar sauce.

The Spicy Chicken Bun (charcoaled slow cooked chicken thigh, guacamole, tomatoes, red onion and fresh cilantro) has a fiery kick, and for something meat-free, the Veggie Bun contains charcoaled iceberg lettuce, feta, mascarpone sauce, spring onion and dill.

All meats are slow-cooked for 10-15 hours and finished off on the robata grill or left to caramelise in a custom-made rotisserie. Freshly hand cut chips and salads made from Mediterranean ingredients complete the savoury offering.

Sweet pitta buns include Choco & sour cherries with chocolate ice cream, homemade sour cherry compote andApple crumble with vanilla ice cream, roasted apples and homemade cinnamon crumble.

There are also selected draft beers from microbreweries, as well as the restaurant’s own-labelled Greek wines.
