VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) A new restaurant offering Mediterranean food, including frozen yogurt and baked goods, has officially opened in the Victor Valley.
The newcomer is Pita Barn Express, which quietly opened earlier this week for it’s ’soft opening’ and is located at 14120 Bear Valley Road, Suite # 2, next to Shakey’s Pizza Parlor, and offers platters, wraps, salads, and vegetarian choices.
The Shawarma Mix Meat and Chicken Wrap, created with skinless, boneless chicken breast, and selected layers of beef, marinated with herbs and spices, roasted and served in pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and tahini sauce is one of the top sellers amongst the crowds this week, according David Gerges, an employee of the establishment.
Side dishes include hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, rice, french fries, house salad, and vegetables.
The eatery also serves pomegranate, blueberry, birthday cake and strawberry shortcake flavored yogurt and many more, with a variety of toppings to choose from.
One must-have item from the menu is the authentic in-house-made baklava, a rich, sweet dessert pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and held together with a sweet honey syrup.
The owner of the new restaurant also owns the Shakey’s Pizza Parlor next door, and the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery, a sports bar located along Amargosa Road in Victorville.
The owner told Victor Valley News that a date for the official grand opening is still in the works. The store can be reached at (760) 269-0470. You can give them a ‘like’ on Facebook here.
