$10 for $20 Worth of Middle Eastern Food
The menu includes small plates such as chicken shawarma wraps ($7), baba ghanouj ($6), and falafel ($6), as well as larger plates such as shrimp kabobs ($16) and mixed grilled kabobs ($17) served with red-lentil soup. Guests can relax on the patio around a hookah ($17) filled with flavors such as double apple or white grape as bartenders mix innovative craft cocktails, including white-wine mojitos ($8) and espresso martinis with vodka, Kahlua, and espresso ($8).
When Sababa's founder and head chef, Ed Wahhab, isn’t whipping up a homestyle menu of Middle Eastern dishes, he can be found in the dining room reading diners' fortunes in the bottoms of their cups of Arabic coffee. Ed’s banter and his love of card tricks create a sense of camaraderie that fills Sababa—Hebrew and Arabic slang for "awesome"—as patrons settle in at the bar, puff strawberry-daiquiri-flavored hookah on the patio, or sample housemade hummus and falafel.
Putting a modern American slant on traditional Mediterranean cuisine, the kitchen flavors beef sliders with kifta spices and creates nachos with pita chips, feta and cheddar cheese, lemon tahini sauce, and a medley of garbanzo beans and vegetables. Bartenders pour wine, crack open bottled beers, and mix up specialty cocktails, such as a manhattan with cardamom and a French martini, whose blend of Chambord, pineapple juice, and vanilla vodka is served in the traditional French way, by a weeping clown.
