Pita Pan at Marina Bay Sands

Rachel and I had lunch at Pita Pan after a visit to the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands. Pita Pan is a vegetarian restaurant serving homemade Pita Breads, Falafels, Middle Eastern Salads and other Mediterranean dishes.

Via their website:

The restaurant is the brainchild of chef and restauranteer, Mrs Reena Pushkarna and her son, Mr Kunal Pushkarna. Mrs Reena personally taught the all-Singaporean team of cooks the fundamentals of Middle Eastern cuisine and sent them to understudy in various kitchens in Israel. Pita Pan’s menu boasts modernized versions of all-vegetarian dishes from Mrs Reena’s personal vault of recipes.

I am not a big fan of vegetarian or extremely healthy food. Most of the time, taste is compromised and I am more of a foodie than a health nut (which explains my thick waistline).

I enjoyed my meal at Pita Pan though. The many sauces they offer were really rich and flavorful, compensating for the plain tasting pita bread and dough staples.

The restaurant’s Red Shakshuka comes highly recommended. This is the first time I am trying this tomato dish. The presentation in a sizzling hot pan looks awesome and very delicious, but I am not really a fan as it is a little too mild in taste for me.

Rachel and I particularly like the crispy pita sticks and the accompanying condiments. The mediterranean platter for two works for those who wants to try a bit of everything – kind of like an introduction to middle eastern mediterranean food.
