Hummus House in PP: https://www.facebook.com/hummushousecambodia/
I should try there sometime.

One of the places at GSM does a good kebab, but the one on the corner (Mediterranean Cafe?) made me a "wrap" which was dry and horrible, not like a proper kebab.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

I see no photos of Pita bread. Hopefully this is no longer the case , but at every place I've been you get a "wrap" which is not Pita.

Don't know the English name for this kind of fast food, but in my birth country it's just called a Pitta and you can find it on every corner, usually served with loads of garlic sauce and a bit of salad. Had a craving for it since a couple of days but a quick google didn't deliver me any results. Any idea where I can find this in PP or Kampot?
It's called döner kebab (turkish version) or gyro (greek version) usually. Unfortunately I haven't found a proper pita place in Cambodia yet.

I'm pretty sure Hummus doesn't have pita breads. They only do flat bread shawarmas, which is not exactly what the OP is looking for.

Babylon on 350 do a good Iraqi version
Hummus House do a good Lebanese version
a South African guy and his missus does a strange but good kebab on st 135 and 460(?) for 6000៛
The cart in front of Niel's mini mart does a late night emergency version that shouldn't be consumed without a gut load a Anchor
The Turkish (?) place on the corner of 51 and 172 does a good one

Never found a good Greek souvlaki here

A good Turkish kebab like I used to get in front of the Brunswick market would be good right now..

There’s a guy at a corner at O’Russey, who sells pork meat pita, very Haram, just like me and all the other dogs...

The Bassac lane store has good bread. not sure if they make it but I remember it being better than a supermarket wrap.
