SAJJ Mediterranean, a Northern California fast casual staple serving up Mediterranean food in the style of making-your-own bowl, wrap or pita just recently opened their second location in Irvine, on Irvine Center Drive near Sand Canyon. Earlier this year they opened up their first location in Rancho Santa Margarita, and judging by the raving yelp reviews it's become a local area favorite!
Protein options include chicken and steak shawarma (my personal fav!), shawafel, falafel and pomegranate chicken. Your selected protein is then served in a choice of pita, wrap, salad, or rice bowl. You then get to fill your selected dish with unlimited toppings including garbanzo beans, eggplant, sumac cauliflower, avocado and many many more! To top it off you also have your choice of sauces, including cilantro mint chutney, hummus, tzatziki, spicy tahini sauce and more. The combinations of these fresh delicious ingredients are endless!
I had a great time trying out SAJJ as it was the perfect way to eat healthy without lacking on the flavor. They also offer the most refreshing housemade waters including a mint lemonade that I HIGHLY recommend you try with your meal!
The Irvine location is located 6636 Irvine Center Drive in Irvine.
Hours: Monday thru Saturday, 10:30 - 8pm, and Sunday 10:30 - 6pm.
