Delicious Middle Eastern Goodies
as I continued to scan through the menu It was the Pumpkin Kibbee that really popped out at me. I am a sucker for anything pumpkin so the opportunity to try something new plus the added benefit of pumpkin made my dinner decision a no brainier.
We decided to begin with an appetizer of crunchy chickpea Falafel patties drizzled with tahini and sprinkled with paprika a top a garden salad and served with a side of heavenly soft pita bread. Yum they were delicious and gone within minutes!
Then the main event was served! The kibbe was prepared with layer of soft and tender pumpkin stuffed with spinach, sauteed onions, soft chickpeas, spices and topped with another layer of pumpkin then baked making for a delicious and very filling dinner. The dish was also served with a side salad drizzled with a flavorful mustard vinaigrette dressing! I have to say this pumpkin may have just made the list of my middle eastern favorites. I might even willingly endure the trip to BC again just for this dish (yes it was truly that good).
In the end all the hassle ended up being well worth it, as we left the restaurant happy and very full!
Sabra is a family owned restaurant open for lunch and dinner and is moderately priced. The restaurant is a bit more upscale in atmosphere and pricing compared to some of the smaller middle eastern restaurants I frequent, but it's definitely delicious. The restaurant offers a $10 lunch buffet that I definitely suggest, it's very affordable plus you get to try a little bit of everything and who doesn't like that. However, do be warned expect to be absolutely worthless and ridiculously full of food after finishing your meal. The food is just too good and not finishing your meal just seems wrong. Even if your intimated when your plate first arrives, I can almost guarantee that you won't have anything left to take home
