Cuisine origin: Iraqi
When one thinks of fast food in Israel, falafel immediately comes to mind. The lesser-known sabich is a must-try, and many foodies will tell you that there is nothing better to sink your teeth into. Sabich was introduced by Iraqi Jews, and was first seen in Israel in Ramat Gan in 1958. Rather than deep fried chickpeas, Frishman Sabich fills your pita with eggplant, egg, and potato. In addition to this are the familiar accompaniments of hummus, tehina, tomato, parsley, cucumber, purple cabbage and onion, which are all loaded on generously.
The mango based spicy and rich in flavor sauce called amba takes this dish is the game changer. The combination of egg and hummus is a very interesting and creates a satisfying interplay of flavors that will leave your taste buds yearning for another bite.
Price: This glorious pita will only set you back NIS 17.
Tip: Be sure to stock up at the salad bar with portions of pickled cabbage, peppers and carrots. It also should be noted that the sharp flavor of vinegar contrasts and enhances the flavors in the sabich.
