Will Always Remember the Fried Cauliflower
Posted on 08 / 06 / 2010
The thing I will always remember about this nice restaurant is the fried cauliflower with tahini sauce that was on the appetizer specials when we ate there twice in June of this year. Golden brown and topped with scrumptious tahini, this was the best fried cauliflower we have ever tasted! When we complimented it to one of the servers, she said that yes, a lot of people really liked it, and had urged them to put it on the regular menu. It went perfectly with my white wine!
The Macro Platter was also very good, particularly the tofu. The second time we ate at Pita Jungle, my partner and I both had the Lentil Fetoosh Salad (after finishing the fried cauliflower, of course!). This huge salad features lentils and rice with caramelized onions, heaped upon a bed of mixed greens, tomatoes, red onions, and cucumbers, with a lemon vinaigrette dressing. This was very enjoyable and extremely filling (especially after the fried cauliflower appetizer!).
The atmosphere at Pita Jungle was very pleasant, and the service was quite good. With almost all of the tables occupied, and the sound of laughter, happy conversations, and upbeat background music, it was clear that this was a popular restaurant and we could see why. If we ever spend the night in Flagstaff again, there's no question where we'll be heading for dinner.
