The newly opened lunch spot downtown is all about the authentic pita, a Mediterranean star that isn’t easily obtainable in the Bay Area. Sababa bakes the fluffy, excellent pita on the spot. Add chicken shawarma, fried eggplant and brown egg (try it!) and crunchy falafel, plus vibrant salads inspired by Israel, such as Moroccan carrot, roasted beets and quinoa tabuli, and you’re in business. The homemade lemonade and pickled mango sauce, called Amba, are also must-tries.
