You might have noticed that most (if not all) of the recipes we've posted are typically eaten with pita bread. While eating Lebanese food, think of pita bread as your fork! You can rip it into bitesized pieces to scoop up some food or you can roll pita up into a sandwich.

You will find the white pita bread (and most likely the other 2 types) at most Middle Eastern or Mediterranean grocery stores. You just have to search for one in your area!

Pita bread brands sold in grocery stores are typically thicker and harder to break apart. There's also a slight difference in taste.
