Dutchies who like (food) festivals might have seen the Pita Queen food truck last summer, but they also have a food stand at Market 33, a food hall in Amsterdam South. All their food is organic, homemade and halal. Owners Rutger and Mahraoui worked at some of Amsterdams leading restaurants before they decided to start Pita Queen.
I went there last week to try their vegetarian options.
We started with soup (they have two vegetarian soups) and pita crisps with three different healthy dips; hummus, lime hummus and baba ganoush. You can taste that everything is homemade in their kitchen. It’s fresh and healthy!
I got some pita’s that you can normally order in a regular size in a mini version so I could taste several versions.
They’ve got the regular with pita bread, but also a whole wheat, spelt and gluten free version. All of the pita breads are made by the chef himself. I had one with avocado, feta and lentils and a wonderful invention of the chef: quinoa balls. They serve the quinoa ball with mint tzatziki.
You can taste it yourself at Market 33 or maybe you’ll see their food truck at one of the Dutch festivals this summer!
