When Tal Smith’s sister, Nirit, returned to South Africa from Israel, they decided it was the perfect time to add a open a second Sababa (which has been feeding the appetites of happy Sea Point customers since December 2009) in the city centre.
The deli’s neutral decor is the perfect backdrop to a huge central table configuration laden with homemade quiches, salads, vegetarian dishes and mouth-watering desserts, cakes and pasties (meat-dishes are refrigerated). The extensive menu has something for everyone, whether, like us, you want a little something sweet to serve with coffee or need to stock up your freezer with delicious family meals to save time in the kitchen after a busy day.
The Bree Street location also has a coffee and cake special for R30. The cake (all fresh-baked daily) is usually one of the following: cheesecake; carrot cake; frangipane and apple tart. Bree Street is also where you’ll find a variety of rogolach (the traditiional Israel pastries we indulged in at our meeting).
Last week a “Fallafel Night” was launched in Bree Street. From 6pm to 9pm every Thursday you can enjoy authentic fallafel, Sabich, Baklava, Yoghurt Pannacotta, Fresh Lemonada with Mint, and local beer & wines.
And if you’re out shopping in the vicinity of the Neighbourgoods Marketon Saturdays, stave off hunger pangs with their famous sesame chicken schnitzel in a pita with all the Istraeli salads, dips and sauces to go with it.
Hours are Monday to Friday 7am – 5pm, Saturday 9am – 2pm, with Falafel evenings on Thursday from 6pm – 9pm at the Bree Street location. Sea Point hourse are Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm, Saturday 9am – 2pm.
