> * Sababa is definitely the kind of place that I like to support: something different and even unique brought to the ‘Burgh by an inspired family. – Foodburgh > * Stand-out versions of classic Middle Eastern mezze, some with a twist, are where this restaurant shines. Hummus is rarely bad, but it’s rarely special either. Hummus Sababa is topped with warm whole chickpeas, slices of hard-boiled egg, chopped parsley, lemon juice and a healthy drizzle of olive oil…Piled on flatbread, it’s more like a sandwich than a spread, a particularly delicious one at that. – China Millman, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
