A restaurant meal is incomplete without its after-dinner mint, which cleanses the palate before patrons gnaw a subterranean tunnel home. Chew the scenery with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Middle Eastern cuisine at Sababa Middle Eastern Grill.
The traditional menu at Sababa Grill blends meat and parve ingredients into Middle Eastern meals served in a dining room warmed by tangerine-tinted walls. Beneath a Warhol-esque canvas of technicolor pitas, diners fork through the restaurant's signature shawarma, svelte slices of broiled chicken and lamb ignited by a classic concoction of spices and a flamethrower ($15). Lemon and garlic marinate into boneless grilled chicken steak ($16.95), and the Sababa salad's mountainous greens come flecked with wedges of avocado, garbanzo beans, and homemade lime dressing ($9.50). Vegetarians can also warm up to the shakshuka ($9.90), two eggs over easy atop a stew of tomatoes, peppers, and onions in an individual frying pan, handy for subduing cartoon burglars trying to steal food from the table.
The quality of the food was only second to the quality of service we received. Our waitress was super friendly and helpfulForked! 2/24/11
The hummus is perfect. It comes paired with freshly baked pita, still warm from the oven.Phyllis K., Yelp, 11/19/11
