Wallet nearly empty after a shopping excursion in Cambridge? Looking for a quick, inexpensive, and tasty bite to eat? Then check out Sabra Grill at Harvard Square!
Don’t let its small size fool you. Owned by a friendly husband-and-wife team, Sabra Grill has fresh, fast, and delicious Middle Eastern fare. The restaurant prides itself on “using only the very finest all natural ingredients to ensure 100% consistency for our customers while the freshness of each dish is guaranteed by made-to-order hand-cut preparation.” They also offer catering services to the local community.
Their hummus and falafel sandwich comes in a large wrap with tomatoes and lettuce. It is certainly filling on its own, but they also offer rice pilaf and spinach rollups as side dishes for those who desire more. Their zesty carrot juice is also refreshing and delicious – it is the perfect accompaniment to the falafel sandwich. My meal cost around $8, and it was definitely worth the price for a satisfying lunch!
Other healthy offerings at Sabra Grill include homus (hummus), tabouli, and baba ghanoush sandwiches. They also have lentil soup, salads, grape leaves, and shish kebab plates. You are bound to find something nutritious and delicious here!
