Cafe Sababa solely has one Restaurant Week particular: Aaron’s Well-known Candy Potato Muffins ($6) — and my goodness, it was particular. I ordered, waited fifteen minutes, however the dish was well worth the wait. Three candy potato croquettes sat on a mattress of spring greens tossed in a lemon French dressing with mango salsa and and squiggles of lime aioli. The presentation was stunning, and it tasted so, so good. The candy potato balls had an excellent crispy edge, and the salsa was refreshing and candy. I particularly cherished the distinction of temperature between the recent crosquettes and the chilly diced mango and pink bell peppers.
This dish is difficult to catch. It’s solely out there at lunchtime from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. this week. There’s nothing else prefer it on small cafe’s regular kosher menu, so if it sounds scrumptious, you want to attempt it right now, Wednesday, or Thursday.
