Fill-a-Pita Gets a New Menu

Fill-a-Pita has long been my go-to for Middle Eastern food. I first started going to Fill-a-Pita when it was a hawker stall on Shenton Way. The fresh falafels and hummus won me over from the very beginning. Ingredients were all fresh and homemade, fully vegetarian (with vegan choices as well) and friendly staff. Their move to Nankin Row makes them much more accessible and the small (air conditioned) space makes it much more comfortable if you can grab a chair inside.

Fill-a-Pita has had a recent change in management as the founder had to move back to Egypt. Mamdouh is now leading the team and he’s made a few additions to the menu. The choices are still all vegetarian friendly (with vegan options) and the old favourites remain.

The platter for two ($27) is a great new option if you’re with a friend who likes to share. The platter includes pita bread, falafels, fava beans, hummus and labna cheese (delicious!). The portions are just enough for two, we could definitely have used a little more hummus or an extra falafel. For some reason the platter doesn’t seem as filling as having just one falafel to yourself ($10). That could be because I shared with Husband and got the short end of the stick 😉

The lentil soup ($7) is delicious, hearty and a good, thick consistency. I added a side of pita to bulk it up for me a little and this was the perfect lunch.

On my most recent visit Mamdouh let me try a portion of the new vegetarian lasagne the team are working on. I have to say it was very good, full of fresh veggies like zucchini, mushrooms and capsicum. The Mediterranean flavours were complemented by the pasta and cheese giving a light and hearty result. I’d definitely give this a try next time.

My other favourites are the Koshari and the Fava Bean pita. The problem is that some of the menu items aren’t available every day so you need to check if you’ve got a craving for one thing in particular. I’d personally love it if the menu included info about the days when different foods are available. A couple of times I’ve had my tastebuds all worked up for something whilst I wait in the queue, only to find out when I order that it’s not available that day. At the time of writing Lasagne is available on Tuesday and Wednesday and Moussaka on Friday and Saturday.

Another new feature of the menu is a range of drinks. I tried a super thirst quenching tamarind drink on my visit, it was slightly sweet but had that sourness from the tamarind making it very refreshing.

The space is a little tricky to find, it’s on Nankin Row, the foodie street that runs between China Street and South Bridge Road, wander along and you’ll find Fill-a-Pita slightly closer to the China Street end. You will have to wait a few minutes for your pita, everything is prepared as it’s ordered, there’s no case of food sitting around to get soggy or lacklustre, it’s all perky fresh and worth the wait every time. Also, the new space is air conditioned so it’s a much ‘cooler’ experience than the previous location.

Note that no gst is charged (and there is no service charge but you could leave a tip if you like 🙂 ).

  1. Hi Victoria,

    Glad to hear that you were able to visit the shop recently and try out Mamdouh’s new additions.

    I always appreciated your support since we first opened. Glad too see you still make it by Fill-a-Pita.

    Am still checking out your reviews (from Cairo).

    All very best,

    • Hi Hassan,
      I hope all is well in Cairo. I manage to get there once every couple of months, I even tried on Deliveroo the other day 🙂
      Take care, Victoria
