Venue Info

Lost and want to know where to start exploring Yemeni cuisine? Try Saltah, which some consider the national dish. It’s a brown-meat stew that will fill you up with good feelings, along with cooked veggies and a fenugreek scented whipped froth that serves the same purpose as sour cream atop black bean soup. Though filling, it’s crucial that you leave room for dessert because that’s where Saba really shines. The bint as-sahn is bready, layered heaven, and the areekah uniquely combines bananas, fresh cream, purified butter, cheddar cheese, and honey. Adding authenticity are the various forms of seating at Saba'.
