60 Second Review: Two Pitas in a Pod
Lunch Truck Season is Back!
…Two Pitas in a Pod: A Mediterranean Contender in Hoboken!
With Mamoun’s Falafel coming to Hoboken – plus the conversion to Mediterrean food over at Hoboken Cottage – one option that slipped my mind (sorry guys!) was the Two Pitas in a Pod lunch truck – which has been in operation much of this winter, while other trucks hunkered down.
Now that spring is around the corner – they’ll be ramping up their schedule in Hoboken – and I had a chance to do my first review this week.
Two Pitas in a Pod fresh across the board
- The “Classic” Falafel sandwich ($5.50) is a knockout. One of the best tasting falafel balls in town. Packed with fresh ingredients – and weighs nearly a pound! Healthy and filling.
- Frites are out of this world. You gotta try the “Pod Frites” ($3.50) which are twice-fried Yukon Gold potatoes – “tossed with garlic, parsley, lemon zest and feta.” 411 Tip: For best results – eat them on the spot.
- Hummus had perfect consistency and flavor, and all the sauces and salads were well done and freshly made.
- I tasted a few other things too… The Lemon Coriander Chicken was nice (locally raised in Wyckoff (when you can sneeze), NJ) – as well as the ground lamb and a daily special burger made from prime rib.
Inspect the simple – yet tasty – Two Pitas in a Pod Menu Here.
For one – I also hope they can eventually get a brick & mortar location like The Taco Truck. It’d serve them well if they can also expand their menu – and also avoid much of the headaches associated with being chased away in various spots in town (like Stevens Institute – where they used to do a brief Wednesday lunch – until big bad-boy Sodexco kicked them out.)
For now – they’re doing lunch downtown (Tues – Fri) – and dinner uptown (Tues – Thurs). And hope to incorporate weekends down by Pier A Park as the weather improves later in the Spring.
The will be around on Saturday for the St. Patrick’s Parade – so be on the lookout for the green pita truck!
