Sahara: Lunch $10 and Under
|Sunbusek Lunch Platter|
Lucky for us they opened a new location last year on the northeast corner of McClintock and Southern.
Sahara is a modest, pocket-sized family owned and operated eatery with an intimate setting. A couple of booths line two walls while the rest of the space is filled with a handful of tables. Windows on two sides allow for the overhead lights to be kept off allowing only natural light brighten the cool, well put together room. A welcome escape on a hot summer day.
But as nice as the place is, you're not there for the ambience, you're there for the food. Lucky you. Sahara has been churning out some pretty amazing Middle Eastern food for more16 years.
Sahara offers a lunch platter Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. For just $7.50 you can get a good sized portion of either Gyro, Chicken Tikka, a Kafta Kabob, Falafel, Veggie Sunbusek, or Spinach Sunbusek served with pita bread and your choice of two sides
|Red Lentil Soup|
For a real treat, order the the Gyro Pita Wrap: a well-seasoned mix of lamb and beef wrapped up in a pita with lettuce, tomato, pickle topped with cool tzatziki sauce. For just $5.50 it's a steal. Splurge and spend the extra $2 for a cup of lentil soup. This was the first time we tried the soup and we will never make the mistake of not getting it again. The soup alone is enough to keep us coming back
