Sabbaba in Newtown
Last week, more than 250 people from the media, food, music and art industries hit King Street for the official grand opening of Sabbaba’s latest restaurant.
Guests were treated to authentic samples of the finest Middle Eastern dishes including chickpea falafels served with pita bread, haloumi and cherry tomato skewers, hummus dips, spiced lean chicken and lamb kofta which Sabbaba prides itself on.
Although the food is made from additive-free ingredients, it is nothing short of delicious. It’s not too oily and all the while flavoursome. What makes it more impressive is Sabbaba’s highly aesthetic, street-kissed interior. Vibrant graffiti by professional street artist/tattooist Jeremy Hession (AKA: Mr Perso) adorns almost every wall for a chilled-out ambiance. The man himself was even on site creating a live art installation as he sprayed more pieces at the back of the restaurant.
Inside, Bang Gang DJ Jamie Doom and DJ Samir spun some pretty phat tunes while everybody’s tastebuds had parties in their mouths. Sumo Salad founder Luke Baylis, Tropfest Business Manager Paul Stuart and Spin! Communications’ Tim Freeland seemed to be enjoying themselves.
So if you want funky, fresh, mouth-watering food that won’t stack on calories, then head to one of Sabbaba’s three Sydney restaurants in Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction and now Newtown with an expanded menu.
