Hi there. A girlfriend and I are headed to Saha for dinner tonight. Neither of us has been, so I'm wondering if anyone out there has recommendations on must-try dishes or other thoughts on the food? thanks!
I had dinner at Saha a few months ago. The 3 Green Things salad was excellent (the green beans were cooked to just the right amount of firm bite), as was the braised lamb shank. Some of the dishes we had were served with a light drizzling of a wonderful smoky, sweet date sauce.
We also enjoyed our dessert, a chocolate-filled phyllo purse that, if I remember correctly, was named "Slap Your Mama" :)
I have heard their bastilla and tagines are good, although we did not try them.
We had a delightful dinner at Saha yesterday - ordered a Saha plate which insludes several kind of dips, then merquez sauasage and kofta, both coming with their own dipping sauces, fattoush and baby okra: everything was outstanding, especially hummus. Highly recommended.
Went twice the last month, both times with large groups (good place for a group).
First time, got a variety of the small plates, a few entrees, things were great. The meshwi plate was solid, with an assortment of grilled meats, rice, and yogurt. I remember liking the pizza and the avocado salad, also. The salmon baklava sounded good, but was disappointing.
Second time, a bunch of us got the prix fixe menu, thinking that it would be a good deal. You don't actually get a full portion of any of the items, so it's not really as great a value as you'd think.
