I love trying out new things and prefer to go to a different restaurant every time I go out for dinner. So I was very happy when the Foodhallen in Amsterdam announced that they opened up several new stands. Most of them opened up in October last year, so I already visited the new Fento, Gunther’s Flammkuchen and Dim Sum Thing back then.
But even more new stands opened up last month, so this week I went back to try Pita. Pita is a food stand from the owners of restaurant Breda in Amsterdam. And although restaurant Breda is quite fancy, they serve something that you might consider less fancy at Pita: döner. The owners try to get rid of the image of döner being louse late-night street food. They offer organic lamb or chicken doner and pita falafel for the vegetarians like me.
In my opinion they succeeded in taking the döner to a new level. One of the main reasons was the bun; they didn’t use the standard pita bun that can taste a bit like (let’s be honest) cardboard. They serve it on a bun that tastes more like Turkish bread and add slightly spicy homemade sauce.
Also new at the Foodhallen is Yoghurt Barn. They already have several shops throughout the Netherlands, but now you can go there for lunch or dessert at the Foodhallen. I had a yogurt tasting with my friend where you get 4 small cups with their different yogurt combinations.
