Pita bread is a type of soft, round, and flat bread that is popular in many countries of the Middle East and the Mediterranean. It is made from readily available ingredients such as flour, water, yeast, and salt. It is usually baked in a very hot oven to create a pocket inside, into which other ingredients can be inserted after cutting. It is often served with dips or spreads. In many countries, it is literally a staple food. Traditionally, it is baked in a wood-fired oven or on a grill, and if possible, served warm. Pita bread is also worldwide available in supermarkets.
In Israel, pita bread is served as a side dish with practically everything. With hummus, shawarma, it is part of the sabich sandwich. In stores, you can buy it for very small amounts. Do you like pita bread or do you prefer sourdough bread?
Accommodation in Jerusalem
You can get accommodation for a great price at the Post Hostel a short walk from Jerusalem's Old City. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts are tasty, and the view from the terrace is nice. One of the most cost-effective accommodations in Jerusalem. The last time I stayed here was in November 2022 and I was very satisfied.
