The last time I was in Houston, Cindy was saddened she couldn’t take part of progressive lunch so we gave her reins to pick out a place for dinner. She introduced us to Cafe Pita + which was recently featured on Food Network by Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Coincidentally, this was our 2nd DDD venue in one day; earlier we went to Niko Nikos which was also featured on DDD.
Two things you should know the first time you go to Cafe Pita +:
1. It’s BYOB!
2. The cevap is the famed item in the menu. Order it.
Cafe Pita +’s order of cevap consists of 10 homemade sausage links about the size of breakfast sausages served in between 2 slices of lepinja bread. They recommend you eat it by tearing the lepinja bread, wrapping it around a sausage link, and eating it with your hands after you dress it with the onions and the cream cheese/sour cream/butter spread. Mmm. The sausage tasted similar to a kebab. The creamy cheese spread was a nice complement. I kept the onions off due to personal preference.
This was my favorite item we tried. It was a nice break from all the beef we ordered. Puff pastry stuffed with spinach and cheese. So decadent, warm. I could not stop gushing as I was eating the burek. We let our waitress pick our third item to sample and this is what she picked for us. I was very pleased with her choice.
If the Cevap sausages were in patty form and then stuffed with cheese and mushrooms, you’d have the Stuffed Pljeskavica. If you watch the video clip I posted at the end of this entry, you’ll see how they make this midway through the video (Cevap is intially featured; Pljeskavica is featured second.) It wasn’t as cheesy as Guy Fieri’s Pljeskavica in the video but perhaps that’s because Kim and I ordered for our group and maybe the cheese wasn’t as melted by the time the rest of our party came. It tasted like a Mediterranean version of a good burger.
Palacini (crepes) filled with hazelnut spread and chocolate.
I love chocolate and I love hazelnut, because of that the crepe was enjoyable. However, I’m sad to say to wasn’t at all impressive in anyway. Can’t win it all though!
