Falafel Pita Sandwich at Sababa

The owner of Sababa, Rami Cohen, greets newcomers with a free falafel that has been dipped into hummus, and he tells them that his is the best falafel in Las Vegas. For each order, ground chickpeas are shaped into a ball, dropped into the fryer and tucked into warm pita that has been insulated with a healthy smear of hummus. Additional toppings such as pickles, salad and tomatoes are up to you, but be wary of Sababa’s hot sauce. A blend of herbs, garlic and chilies, this boldly flavored condiment will knock the socks off even the most hard-core of spice freaks. $7, 3220 S. Durango Drive, 547-5556.
