Rod Zaray and chef/mother Ruth, who hails from Rabat, Morocco, now preside over Sababa Kosher Grill in Sherman Oaks Plaza after running several restaurants in Israel. The family relocated to LA two months ago and replaced short-lived Ventura Blvd Grill in September, with a name that translates from Hebrew as “cool.”

The space retains a flaming street sign logo and contains glass-topped wood tables, an open kitchen touting a grill and shawarma spit, and a cafeteria-style line for customized pita, laffa and baguette sandwich construction.

Star ingredients for sandwiches or plates consist of turkey kebab, entrecote steak, hanging tender (netach katzavim), beef kebab and an array of chicken parts. Jerusalem mixed grill is a savory mix of grilled chicken breast, heart and liver stir-fried with onion. Possible additions found in stainless steel bins include olives, pickled carrot and cauliflower, Israeli salad and an array of house hot sauces.

Sababa Kosher Grill even has a Tuesday special that leans on Ruth’s Moroccan heritable, couscous with vegetable hummus and a choice of either beef or chicken.

Vegetarians also get plenty of choices, including falafel, hummus with mushrooms or fava beans, a Tunisian tuna sandwich, an omelet with parsley and onion, and the increasingly popular tomato, pepper and egg dish, shakshuka.

A perfectly tended rose garden filled with prized varieties was a source of envy. An expanse of deep green lawn was a must. But now, with […]
