SAJJ Mediterranean, the fast casual Middle Eastern eatery known for its fresh, exotic, and customizable cuisine, will celebrate the Grand Opening of its second Orange County location on Friday, November 30. The newest SAJJ outpost is located in Irvine at 6636 Irvine Center Drive, within the Sand Canyon Plaza shopping center. To celebrate, SAJJ will be giving away free entree cards to the first 30 guests in line at 11am, and guests who visit all day long on November 30 will receive 50% off their order.
“The support we’ve received for our other OC store in Rancho Santa Margarita has been beyond what we imagined, and so now that SAJJ is better known in the area, we have even higher hopes for Irvine,” said Fred Tarazi, Managing Partner of SAJJ Mediterranean’s Southern California stores. “Irvine is such a wonderful family-oriented city, and we look forward to making SAJJ an integral part of the community through partnerships with local business, schools, charities, and other organizations.”
The upcoming Irvine location will spread SAJJ’s reach to a new part of Orange County, and marks the beginning of SAJJ’s aggressive statewide expansion announced last month. The brand was recently named to San Francisco Business Times’ list of Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area, and will be opening new locations in San Mateo and San Jose before year’s end, and San Ramon in early 2019.
Named ‘Best Fast-Dining Spots in the Bay Area’ by San Francisco Magazine and ‘Best Value’ by SF Weekly, SAJJ’s fully customizable menu offers traditional Middle Eastern dishes made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Guests begin building their meal with a choice of pita bread, SAJJ wrap, salad, or turmeric rice bowl, then fill it with chicken or steak shawarma, pomegranate chicken, shawafel (falafel & shawarma), or their famous falafel, which Zagat SF called the ‘best falafel in the Bay Area.’ Guests can further customize their meal with unlimited toppings and sauces, including hummus, cilantro mint chutney, tahini, tzatziki, peri peri and more. All entrees are served with complimentary lentil soup, while fries, pita chips, hummus, falafel, and baklava can be purchased as additional sides. Traditional Middle Eastern beverages, like mint and strawberry lemonade, tamarind, and a mint yogurt drink, are made in-house and available at SAJJ’s newest location.
SAJJ Mediterranean’s Irvine outpost will be open everyday from 10:30am-8:30pm. In addition to their regular menu selection, SAJJ’s Irvine location will offer catering services with choices of proteins, wide selection of sides, an appetizer menu, salad bar, and individual meal packages.
