After a busy day shopping in Carnaby Street, hands are bag-laden, stomachs growling: where to re-energise? Casual spot Pittabun is a welcoming option. Order at the counter then head down into the dinky mirror-ceilinged space out back. Here’s the deal: the pitta is hand-stretched in Greece, the meat that fills them slow-cooked for 12 hours and finished off over charcoal. Choose from the likes of short rib patty or lamb shoulder (vegan options are available on request); the foursome next to us raves about the beef. We opt for spicy chicken where oh so tender pieces of thigh mingle with guacamole and mayo. What else? Panko-crumbed cod with homemade beetroot ketchup and textural walnut-garlic spread – the deep-filled creation is imaginative and gone in seconds. Do order the fresh slaw with sherry vinegar dressing and a side of fries sprinkled with secret spice mix, and do not miss their in-house made tartare and tzatziki for dipping. Leave room for dessert too – also pitta-based, our cinnamon sugar coated pocket filled with chocolate brownie ice-cream and sour cherries holds its shape surprisingly well and is devoured greedily. It may not be a place to linger, but it certainly makes for a super tasty pitstop.
