Brunch at Sabur, Davis Sq.

aromatherapy | Feb 28, 200301:24 PM

Haven't seen many posts on this place so I thought I'd toss in my 2 cents. They are open for brunch/lunch on Sat. & Sun. The menu is soup, salads, and many of the appetizers from the dinner menu, plus some eggy stuff. Prices are $4 for a substantial soup, around $7-8 for most dishes, top out at $10 for I forget what.

Tried: the zucchini fritters with ajvar, five or six deep-fried golf ball-sized fritters surrounding a pool of ajvar (roasted red pepper puree--food of the gods), all sprinkled with bits of feta. They were fried quite dark brown--if that was a mistake they should keep making it, because the contrast in texture between the crisp crust and the light, airy inside was wonderful. Mildly flavored (well, it is zucchini)and a great vehicle for the very good, mildly spicy-hot ajvar.

And a side order of grilled Balkan sausages, six plump little mildly flavored lamb-beef-veal (I asked) cylinders that came with a cup of yogurt-cucumber-garlic-mint sauce--nice sauce, but if I get this again I'll ask for ajvar instead (I would have expected yogurt with the fritters, ajvar with the meat, but I got to mix and match anyway and both combos were good).

With a coffee, the bill was just under $14 before tip.

The houndish couple at the next table enjoyed their sausages, lamb and chickpea soup, and boreg (sp?), a savory pastry in a phyllo-type dough.

Nice room, nice staff. I was impressed and will go back.
