Ask ML: Can You Get a Sabich in Midtown?
After seeing Robyn Lee’s amazing looking write up of the “sabich” from Taim on Serious Eats New York, I am now on a quest to find one of these sandwiches in Midtown. Described as a pita “stuffed with thick rounds of fried egglant that melt like butter, along with a sliced hard boiled egg, hummus, Israeli salad (diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and parsley in a lemon mint dressing), marinated cabbage, tahini, and amba (pickled mango sauce).” Oh my lord. I know Olympic Pita has a mango sauce, but there is nothing called a “sabich” on their menu. Has anybody had one of these in Midtown before? Must… have… now. [Photo courtesy of Robyn Lee]
