Pita Jungle to launch “Seasonal Kitchen Crafts Menu”

New gluten-free and vegetarian bites.

Pita Jungle is celebrating the new season by launching a Seasonal Kitchen Crafts Menu beginning on Tuesday, October 22.

The restaurant usually commemorates their anniversary by bringing throwback dishes from over the last few decades. However, this time around it’s “a rebirth of deliciousness,” which includes dishes like the Ginger Stir Fry with Shirataki Noodles.

The new Seasonal Kitchen Crafts Menu is a combination of a balanced Mediterranean diet with global cuisine and dietary trends of keto, paleo, and gluten-free.

Another perk: Both of the Tucson locations are getting the reinvented dishes.
