Pita Jungle Spirit in Mexican Ghost Kitchen

by Mike Hunter

Pita Jungle's A Su Salud Tacos

Pita Jungle has taken its healthy Mediterranean concept and moved to a new continent with A Su Salud — “to your health” — a Mexican food ghost kitchen. Piloting its concept at its Tempe location, Pita Jungle launched A Su Salud in March, offering delivery through its third-party delivery partners as well as pick-up service.

“Mexican cuisine offers a palette of vibrant and fresh ingredients that overlaps with the fresh ingredients that reside within the Pita Jungle pantry, making it a natural leap for us to interpret authentic Mexican recipes through our healthy-cooking Mediterranean-diet approach,” says Bassel Osmani, one of Pita Jungle’s founders, pointing out that, actually, Pita Jungle has a well-delineated history of interpreting global cuisines, especially Baja and Sonoran delights that have appeared on our Pita Jungle menu through various entrées like Blue Corn Nachos, Medchilada, Pico de Gallo and Chicken Del Sol.

“The ghost kitchen operates as a distinct subunit within the same four walls, benefitting from efficiencies in the preparation of same ingredients, that are culinarily tweaked to satisfy the Mexican food format,” Osmani explains. “As much as possible we use the same prepared fresh ingredients — such as prepped veggies and proteins — to build a high-quality product with a Mexican-food profile.”
