Tasty Falafel sandwich at Sabra Grill [San Francisco]

fine wino | Oct 10, 200609:14 PM     13

I just came from lunch at Sabra Grill on Grant (near the Chinatown Gate) and I gotta say that was the best falafel sandwich I've had in quite some time.

I got there about 11:45 and no one else was up there. I don't know if they make the falafel to order as a rule or just because it was still quiet up there but once I put in my order, the cook measured out the balls in a little cup and popped them one by one in the fryolater. They were warm and crisp and really flavorful, served in that great pillowy pita bread that is hard to come by in these parts. A nice change from the usual lavasch roll-up.

All the fixins' were top notch: vine tomatoes at their peak of ripeness, crisp iceberg, excellent tahini sauce with just the right touch of garlic, chive and lemon and a couple bites of pickle on top. My only improvement would have been thinner slices of pickle incorporated throughout the sandwich. Next time I'll ask for xtra pickle.

Great lunch option at $5.50 a sandwich. And this place blows Oasis away. I'd walk the 5 blocks to Sabra any day rather than cross the street from my building for Oasis. Looking forward to a return trip to try out some of the other offerings.

Note that they're closed on Sat.
