Set to open in May this year, What the Pitta has achieved cult status as a great vegan takeaway option, and has earned the title of Best Takeaway in London. 

The award-winning brand was founded in 2016 by Cem Yildiz and Rojdan Gul, inspired by a family-held secret recipe. The pair brought back the flavours from Germany, where the recipe was discovered, and made their home in Shoreditch’s Box Park.

Since then, the kebab magicians have branched out across the South East to Croydon, Camden and Brighton, and are now making the move up North.

The takeaway has quickly gained huge success, receiving airtime on The One Show and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, as well as serving up meals to renowned Grime artist JME.

Most recently, What The Pitta was awarded the Best Takeaway in London award by none other than Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, in the capital earlier this week.

So what’s on the menu? You’ll be able to get your meat-free mitts on their crispy vegan nuggets, homemade gyros and tasty falafel wraps, all made with authentic spices and a whole lotta’ love.

And who could forget their notorious döner kebab? Just finish it off with some vegan ice cream and a big nap.
