Tzikii Pita Grill

7510 S. Priest Drive Tempe, AZ 85283 | Tempe | 480-456-5555

Location Description:

The uniqueness at this Mediterranean fast-casual eatery in Tempe comes from its Egyptian slant, giving way to a menu of homemade dishes heavy on the rice, vegetables, and lentils made from family recipes stretching all the way to Cairo. A Subway-style affair, the wallet-friendly spot lets guests pack pitas, bowls, and plates with very good chicken shawarma, tameyas, Egypt’s version of the falafel, and spicy baba ganoush. There’s also koshari. A kind of Italian dish by way of Egypt, this hearty vegan- and vegetarian-friendly snack is made from rice, lentils, garbanzo beans, and pasta coated in a spicy tomato sauce and sprinkled with fried onions.
