Food Truck Review: No. 29


Rumbling out of Parkesburg, Chester County, the Happy Pita Truck ( serves up gyros and rollups that seem fresh and well prepared. We caught up with them one Tuesday afternoon at The Porch at the 30th Street Station – a great site if you want to check out food trucks. There are two new ones there every day.

pita1 Food Truck Review: No. 29

A chicken gyro cost $8.50 and came with a long list of ingredients: Chicken (you could choose beef also) with arugula, tomato, onion, pickles, banana peppers, hummus, tzatziki sauce, tahini, cucumbers and feta. There’s a lot going on there. It all meshed quite well – although picking up this hefty pocket of pita bread proved impossible. Much as I disdain anyone who eats pizza with a knife and fork, there was little choice here.

There’s a decent Buffalo chicken rollup, as well as various versions of hummus and falafel and other offerings that drive me to spellcheck. Anyway, we’ve had a bad pita experience during the Food Truck Frenzy. This one restored our faith in Mediterranean food.

Score – 81/100
