Middle Eastern Lemon Chicken & Pasta Salad

There are are countless bodegas surrounding the Newark Ave. area in Jersey City. Some offer the standard deli fare, others like the Pita Grill Express at 56-58 Sip Avenue, cook up a spread of hot, homemade dishes that are tasty and cheap. The Pita Grill is open 24/7 and its sign proudly proclaims that “anytime is the perfect time.”

I choose the $3.99 lunch special, chicken and vegetables with pasta salad.

The chicken and bell peppers had a zesty citrus flavor to them. The pasta salad, a mix of bow ties and stuffed tortellini, was just right. After so many rich lunches, this decidedly light meal was flavorsome but didn’t seem to quite fill me up. I guess it’s time my expanded stomach shrink back to the size of a fist instead of a cantaloupe.
