Just curious...Is that corn I see?

Those yellow bits...corn in their baklava?

I hope someone will stop in and take advantage of this bonus offer...and report back on this.

Not corn TC. I'd venture that's a chunk of cashew or some other nut variety.

The wife and I like to eat at the remaining location near Tai-Da and although we've enjoyed it before, it's even better now. The food is even better, the service was much better. Not that it was bad before, but if the gentleman that we met there today was the owner, then he seems to be taking a more direct hand in how the food id prepared and served. if you haven't been in a while, check it out.

Yes, I got a similar impression when I visited a couple of weeks ago. Much more personable and enthusiastic service. Also, authentic Middle Eastern hirsutism now in the kitchen. :cool:

Yeah, I go about once a week and like the changes. Funny, I used to go ocassionally years ago, and then about 6 months ago realized I loved their food so why not go more often?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Thanks for the info. I was disappointed when they closed the restaurant in Tianmu. I haven't made a trip to the Tai-Da location in many years. Now I'll plan a visit.

Seems that the Heping location of Sababa has been taken over by Imma Pita. Assume that it is associated with Imma Bakery in Tainan but I'm not sure. It was closed when I was walking by so I didn't have a chance to sample the food.

The Heping location (actually much closer to Xinhai Road) is back in business, apparently with new ownership. I've only tried the chicken souvlaki pita--and it was delicious, enough to get me back there the next day to have another. The portions are not huge, so big eaters may not be fully satisfied, but it was perfect for me. There are a handful of tables, clean and comfortable. In the back, they're baking pitas for the other shop in Gongguan (I heard) as well as for the Sababa stand in the Gongguan night market. The fresh smell of baking and the bright fresh food make the Heping location a pleasure to visit. Beware though: as before, it's closed on Sundays!
