SAJJ Mediterranean has added chicken kabobs to its in-store menu at all locations in California. The kabobs, which have been a popular item on SAJJ’s catering menu since 2013, can now be enjoyed as a protein option in any grain bowl, salad, sajj wrap, or pita sandwich.
SAJJ’s authentic chicken kabobs are made with cubed chicken breast that is marinated in cardamom, turmeric, and peppers before being charred on the grill and finished in the oven with fresh tomatoes. Executive Chef Loay Alhindi recommends enjoying the chicken kabobs on top of a turmeric rice bowl with garlic spread, tomato and cucumber salad, mixed greens, olive oil lemon dressing, and cucumber pickles on the side.
“We began testing the chicken kabobs in our stores earlier this year, when we would feature it as a special of the day on our line,” says Executive Chef, Loay Alhindi. “Our customers would come back asking for the chicken kabobs once they tried them, and many of our catering customers recommended we have it as a permanent menu item in-stores, so we’re excited to have officially launched it in all SAJJ restaurants.”
Recognized as ‘Best Fast-Dining Spots in the Bay Area’ by San Francisco Magazine and ‘Best Value’ by SF Weekly, SAJJ’s fully customizable menu offers traditional Mediterranean dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Guests build their meal in an assembly line format, starting with the choice of signature sajj wrap, pita sandwich, grain bowl, or salad. In addition to the chicken kabobs, protein choices include chicken and steak shawarma, pomegranate chicken, shawafel (half falafel and half shawarma) or SAJJ’s famous falafel, which was awarded the title of ‘best falafel in the Bay Area’ by Zagat SF. Unlimited spreads, sauces, and toppings can be added to further customize the meal to each guest’s liking. Complimentary lentil soup is served with each entree, and additional items like fries, pita chips, chocolate hummus, and traditional Mediterranean beverages can round out the meal.
