SF Lunch Series #20.2 report - Sabra grill

Alexandra | Sep 12, 2004 01:01 AM

Four of us (nja, ChowFun, RWCFoodie, and myself) met to chow down on Israeli Glatt Kosher delights on Friday at Sabra Grill, in the FiDi at Grant & Bush.

We ordered:

Israeli "green" salad (tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, in simple lemon juice dressing, about $3.99)

Falafel plate (8 pieces of falafel - no hummus or tahini included, sadly - about $5.99?)

Baba ghanoush (sp?) - really unique and delicious to me. Interesting pale green color and very smooth texture (someone speculated it had mayonnaise in it). I'd go back for that with pita.

Spicy eggplant ($5.99? - a little spicy and heavy on the garlic - tasty)

Malawah (Yemenite fried dough served with chopped tomato "sauce" - unfortunately the tomatoes used were unripe and flavorless) - good, but not as good as the malawah at Holy Land, in my opinion. HL makes it bigger, flakier, and less greasy, not to mention blistered in places in a really tasty way.

Double skewer of lamb shishlik kebab ($15.99, I think), served with rice or fries and two types of cabbage salad

We each paid $15 and got lots of food. Everything was tasty, but a couple of dishes really stood out to me - the baba ghanoush and the lamb shishlik (well-done and fatty but very flavorful). Not an everyday lunch place because of the prices, but somewhere to go with a group and share, definitely.

Am I missing anything?
