After a week end full of food, we decided to have a salad at Pita Grill in Hoboken. Pita Grill is a chain that you can find in lots of places. The concept is healthy Mediterranean food.
We started off with a fresh squeezed orange juice.
This was a real fresh squeezed OJ, not a watered down one and for $3, there was a nice quantity of it!
For the salads, Jodi had the Goat cheese salad.
It is composed of mesclun greens, golden raisins and roasted walnuts tossed with a lemon honey vinaigrette. Served with grilled pita, topped with Goat cheese and caramelized onions. This is one of my favorites, especially the pita with caramelized onions and goat cheese! The sweetness of the onions completes so well the tartness of the cheese. Definitely to try!
On my side, I got a Pita Grill salad.
It is made of grilled chicken and basil-rubbed eggplant over mesclun greens, dried cranberries, crumbled Feta and with a roasted red pepper vinaigrette. That was delicious and fresh! The chicken was perfectly cooked: moist with a nice burnt taste on the charred areas. The vinaigrette was very light and subtle. I finished my plate!
So definitely, this is the place to go for a healthy lunch! I will try to remember the day I go to another food marathon...
Enjoy (I did)!
