Does anyone know if this is available in Toronto?
From its Wikipedia entry:
Sabich, served in a pita bread wrap, traditionally contains fried eggplant, hard boiled eggs, hummus, tahini, Israeli salad, potato, parsley and amba (a mango pickle). Traditionally it is made with eggs cooked for a long time until the white of the egg becomes brown. Sometimes it is doused with hot sauce and sprinkled with minced onion.

I've had it at the old dr laffa (north location). Wasn't bad, but a bit off the mark. The eggplant was dryish/burnt and I don't remember if there wasn't enough amba or it just didn't taste right/strong enough. I'll probably try the new dr laffa one of these days....but may hold out until the next tel aviv trip for the really good stuff.
I was at Cold Tea on Sunday. Top chef Dustin Gallager did a pop-up bbq. He served a phenomenal Iraqi sabich + grilled pineapple (dipped in ginger ale and rum) for $10.
The eggplants were grilled, not fried, and the eggs were soft boiled.
It was a delicious!!
From Dustin's Twit:
According to the chef, he is in the process of opening a restaurant with "similar type of food" on Queen W.
