Somehow I came across Doughlicious on social media – their videos of pita bread baking always make me drool. Check them out on IG @doughliciousyyc and through their website www.doughlicious.ca. I was out running errands on a Saturday so I stopped in on my way home. It was around lunchtime so I figured I’d grab something small to eat. I got to taste the different kinds of lebneh cheese (OMG!) on their homemade crispy pita chips. For $5 I purchased a small container with three different kinds – the spicy one, one with walnut, dill and I think lemon, and one with cumin perhaps? I should have written it down because that one was my favourite. I used some of the lebneh as a spread to make a veggie pita sandwich the next day for lunch – so good!
I also brought home a bag of crispy pita chips (although, I do think they’re too greasy), fresh pita (yum!), and frozen vegetarian samosas. I still haven’t tried those puppies yet, but I’m sure they’re going to be super delicious.
For lunch I discussed my options with the very friendly lady and ended up with a simple spinach and cheese pizza for $5.95. You can pay a couple bucks extra to get your pizza loaded with all the mediterranean fixins you would typically find at a pita/shawarma place.
I watched the lady make Fettee for another customer and it looked and smelled super tasty. I’ll have to try it next time. I sat in the store to eat my pizza and the place got busy really quickly. It’s nice to see that families and local businesses have found the location, given that it’s a little bit off the beaten path.
There are lots of options for sweets – if you need a dessert for a dinner or potluck, you should stop in here for something different!
