Sham on Santa Monica Blvd at Fifth is now open until midnight on Friday and Saturday - Jihad, the owner said he had customers until 1 a.m. last night too. Just had our second lunch there - excellent food but not quite as bountiful as on our first visit - the lunch special was three mini size choices from appetizers, salads or main dishes. Now its two larger size dishes from that assortment. A good value would be to split a plate that comes with two sides and looked really wonderful. Jihad said you can order a choice of five salads for $8 and we'll do that next time. I just love the decor there, the noise and the bleating rhythm of arab music.
Oh the yoghurt drink is fresh made, salty. Jihad took the rotisserie chicken off the menu because a lot of customers said they can get that anywhere but they come for the Syrian food.
