Eclectic Healthy Cuisine Opens in Hillcrest

| June 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

With “The art of eating healthy”® as their slogan, Pita Jungle is open for business. It offers an eclectic blend of fresh ingredients, creative energy, and good times. Pita Jungle is located at 1045 University Avenue in the renovated Charles Jurman Building, a historic building which has since been meticulously restored to its original exterior design. Pita Jungle incorporated the historical significance of the building into the design and decor. The historic landmark boasts a unique atmosphere that will complement the restaurant’s vibe.

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.

Wood-fired salmon is one of the healthy meals to be served at Pita Jungle.

Constituents 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.

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.
