Nuba is a Lebanese restaurant in Vancouver that originally started out with their location on Hastings and has expanded to numerous locations around Vancouver. They sell pita wraps, lunch plates, and lots of sharing plates for group dining.
For my lunch, I went with the Mjadra pita wrap ($7.25). This was filled with green lentils, jalapenos, rice, avocados, caramelized onions, pickled veggies, organic greens, tahini, and hot sauce.
The pita wrap was slightly warm, soft, and fresh tasting. I’m a big meat eater, but for a vegetarian option, this was full of flavour and delicious. The tender lentils were full of aromatic herbs and spices.
The greens and pickled vegetables added a fresh crunch. Although I don’t think avocados are normally used in Lebanese cuisine, the addition of them to the wrap added a buttery richness. The smokey and sweet caramelized onions added another interesting element to the pita.
The pita from Nuba was tasty and bursting with flavour. Some of their plates can get a bit pricey, but the pitas are a great option for an affordable fresh lunch.
Yes, for a yummy pita wrap.
