Israeli Street Food Comes to SoMa

Just when you thought our foodie scene couldn’t get any better, a new addition comes to SoMa.  Fast and casual spot Sababa has opened its third pita bar at 71 Stevenson St., Suite 100.

The newest Sababa offers build-your-own Israeli street food–style bowls as well as tasty pita sandwiches.  A recent Hoodline article gives you the inside scoop on this new South of Market food venue.

At Sababa, which gets its name from a Hebrew slang word that roughly translates as “thumbs up,” guests choose a base (pita, bowl or rice) and protein (falafel, chicken shawarma, kofta or sabik), and can customize their meals with a variety of salads, pickles, sauces and add-ons. To drink, Sababa offers frozen mint limonana (Middle Eastern lemonade).

The new addition to the SoMa foodie scene seems to be a hit with yelpers:

The food is so fresh and tasty. They bake the pita bread in front of you so it’s warm and fluffy 🙂 The portion are huge so I can never finish the meal. Excited to eat it for dinner as well! – Lin M.

Great place for lunch or grab something on the way very clean and great location. Highly recommend to try the falafel and the sabich with tahini and hummus. – Issac H.

Easily the most perfectly-cooked falafel I’ve had anywhere.  Delightful choice of sides with my plate, generous and filling portions, with delicious hot and sweet sauces and pickled vegetables.  This is a great quick lunch stop– we were seated with our food in minutes, even during the busy lunch rush.  Kind staff and nice casual atmosphere. – Marielle J.

Now that we have your attention, Sababa is open from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. on weekdays, closed on weekends.
