Sahara - New Brunswick

JustJake | Sep 1, 2011 09:48 AM

had occasion to visit my son at Rutgers and I suggested dinner in town, in a town that is rich with a of opportunies. Have dined at quite a few, and opted to try Sahara, a Mediterranean bistro up the road on Easton Ave.

Reasonably priced, I suggested to my son that he could do far worse as to eating in town as he now lives off campus. Healthy food, salads, etc. that are affordable to even a student on a stipend and far better than those hellacious 'grease trucks'.

Started off with a phylo appy with feta and dill with a cream dipping (tzaziki sp?) sauce.

I ordered a shrimp kabob with Turkish spices that had the plate filled with long grained rice (w/almonds), pickled red cabbage, fresh tomatoes, and a wonderul bulghur. We both ordered the lentil soup which was extraordinarily good. He ordered the Shwarma (essentially a lamb based cutting ala gyro) on his plate with essentially the same sides as I.

Next time I'm in NB with my better half for a show, a game etc, I'm going to check this place out again and begin exploring the menu a bit more. Good stuff.
