I went to Sagi’s Grill for lunch today and enjoyed it. It’s a small and simple place in the southwestern corner of West Boca. It’s on the west side of 441, just south of Judge Winikoff and just north of Sandalfoot.
The plaza includes a number of ethnic restaurants and retail, especially South American places. Parking can be difficult.
I had the shawarma platter, which they make with turkey. It comes with rice or french fries. Both the meat and the rice were very good. The meat was flavorful and nicely textured.
Lunch also includes their “salad bar”, which is not what you might expect. I didn’t see any lettuce. It has several bowls with various kinds of salads like cole slaw, potato salad, and some more ethic dishes that were all delicious.
At $11.95, my shawarma platter seemed a little expensive. But it was a lot of food and I took more than half of it home. Also, it seems reasonable to pay a little more for genuine kosher food (even though I personally do not keep kosher).
Table service was a bit limited on my visit. I was never offered more cold water or hot water for my tea, and since half the food came from the salad bar, there’s not much service needed. There was a big table of older Jewish women who were getting a lot of attention from the lone waitress. On the other hand, the place was not crowded.
One other important note for families – the restaurant website does show a kids menu.
