Miami New Times's Description
Pita Loca in South Beach is an Israeli joint where the falafels are filled with warm spice and crunch, the hummus is peerlessly smooth, the shwarma features real roasted lamb, and the salad bar is a smorgasbord of eminently crammable comestibles. Pay the extra buck and get your sandwich on lafa bread, which is larger and fluffier than pita. After the requisite splash of nutty tahini sauce, point to the items in the salad bar you want stuffed into your sandwich and a nice man behind the counter will oblige: Pickles, coleslaw, tabouleh, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, hot peppers -- keep pointing until the man starts looking a little less nice, which means you're pushing it. You won't find a much better sandwich in town.
Tips from foursquare
Amazing Israeli foods! Shawarma is authentic and fantastic
The Shawarma is awesome! Certified #Kosher :)
Delivery takes FOREVER. But the food is worth the wait* Huge portions :)
Food is good. Not too many tables though, so if you have a large group you might want it to go.
Chicken Shish Kabob Pita is the best I've ever had. Delicious!
