I have been wanting to try Sababa for over a year now and I even made a reservation but got cold feet and canceled. Finally I took the plunge. Service was cold. You can get two courses for $22 at brunch time. The food we had was tasty but did not agree with my stomach due to spices.
Charred Eggplant – Herbed Labne, Pomegranate & Pistachio
Very simple baked eggplant rolled and topped with pomegranate molasses and chopped pistachios. It was good but a little too light.
Smoked Trout – Muhammara, Walnuts & Grilled Cucumber
Very spicy muhammara was the base for smoked trout. Crisped chickpeas added crunch.
Sumac & Onion Marinated Steak Kebab
It was good but a bit chewy.
Lamb & Beef Kofta Kebab
It was flavorful but too spicy for us to enjoy.
Halva-Chocolate Pot De Creme Almond Brittle, Date Molasses & Chantilly
After all the spice we needed a sweet to cool us down. It was enjoyable.
