Eclectic Healthy Cuisine Swinging into San Diego | Pita Jungle Now Open in Hillcrest
May 30, 2012
With “The art of eating healthy” as their slogan, the people of Hillcrest and San Diego are in for a treat. The newly opened Pita Jungle offers an eclectic blend of fresh ingredients, creative energy, and good times. Pita Jungle is now open in Hillcrest at 1045 University Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103.
Pita Jungle’s menu features a variety of salads, hummus and taboule, healthy burgers, wood fired pizzas, pitas and fresh seafood. The concept is based on offering a healthful and natural cuisine abounding with vegetarian and vegan options, crafted within the principles of the Mediterranean diet. The menu flourishes with items that seek to balance greens, grains, legumes, meats, and fruits.
Ingredients like olive oil, garlic, and fresh herbs, add flavor and good nutrition to a long list of featured dishes. In addition to simple preparation, the quality of the food is due to fresh ingredients that are put together daily, from scratch.
Pita Jungle has opened in the renovated Charles Jurman Building, a historic building which has since been meticulously restored to its original exterior design. Pita Jungle has incorporated the historical significance of the building into the design and decor. The historic landmark boasts a unique atmosphere that complements the restaurant’s vibe.
The 150-seat, full-service restaurant features an outdoor patio, a wood fired oven, an open kitchen and a bar serving boutique wines, domestic, premium and craft beers.
Embodied by the dynamism of the staff, local art rotations adorning the walls, and an eclectic blend of music ranging from classic to Cuban, Jazz to Indy, Pita Jungle has evoked a cult-like admiration that is easy to embrace.
For healthy food on the go, Pita Jungle offers take-out with their full menu available. Catering options are also available for events of all sizes.
