“FiDi was a natural choice because our food is quick, fresh, and healthy. For people that eat lunch out several times a week, they can come to Sababa and have a real meal, with vibrant flavors and seasonings, but within their lunch hour and budget.“
“Sababa is a Hebrew and Arabic slang word meaning to have a good time - and really that’s how I describe what we try to do at Sababa.”
“I’ve always wanted to open my own restaurant, but always thought it would be later in my life, after years of fine dining training. Instead, I came to the conclusion that I like cooking casual, tasty food, especially my childhood cuisine from Israel. At the age of 23, instead of finishing up a business degree while working in fine dining, I decided to take the plunge and pursue Sababa seriously.“
“I’ve probably changed the recipe (for the falafel) 10 times before I was happy with it. That being said, I highly recommend trying a sabik sandwich. It’s something uniquely Israeli. It comes from Iraqi jews that came to Israel, and it’s now one of the most popular sandwiches in Israel.”

Sticking to a Mediterranean style diet might slow down aging finds the EU funded project NU-AGE. At a recent conference in Brussels, researchers presented that a NU-AGE Mediterranean style diet, tested in the project, significantly decreased the levels of the protein known as C-reactive protein, one of the main inflammatory marker linked with the aging process. Another positive effect of this diet was that the rate of bone loss in people with osteoporosis was reduced. Other parameters such as insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular health, digestive health and quality of life are yet to be analysed.
As with biological markers, considerable country differences were seen when comparing several aspects, for instance on the overall nutrition knowledge. In France and the UK, over 70% of participants thought they had high nutrition knowledge while in Poland only 31% believed so.
