“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.“
“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.”
Sababa is Hebrew slang for something along the lines of "cool," "great," and/or "general satisfaction," which is exactly what you’ll feel in FiDi’s newest fast-casual lunch destination, especially if you love pita. The hot pita bar serves pita in just about every form -- sandwich, salad, bowl -- with falafel, chicken, and kofta. It’s… sababa. Head there to score a hearty Israeli lunch for around $12.
