Hmm do you know any doctor(s) who could take on this dangerous task?

Caught some bar seats by showing up right before they opened with a few friends.

Apps ranged from good to exceptional, mostly very good. Highlights there were the crudo and tomatoes w/eggplant puree.

Red snapper tagine was decent. Skewers were meh.

Soft serve was incomprehensible (maybe it’s trying to pick at some notes of nostalgia that I’m just missing?), strawberry shortcake was good, flan was divine.

Drinks were excellent. (I had the sour & the milk punch, both of which I really liked, and tried a friend’s cherry limeade - wasn’t my thing but if you like that sort of thing they did pull it off).

If I hadn’t been dining with a vegetarian and two other people who didn’t eat red meat I would’ve gotten a different main, and maybe been happier for it. As it was I’d probably rather go back to Bavel, but I can’t complain too much. I’d still be very happy to have something like this in the neighborhood when I move to Berkeley.

I think they’re chasing these popsicles from childhood with their soft serve but I could be WAY off

We liked it.

Due to set0312’s unfortunate bout with COVID (yet somehow still managing to pass on good eats to others), we enjoyed a great unexpected meal at Saffy’s. My pics are horrible compared to those in this thread so I won’t bother but just wanted to post to join in the enthusiasm for the chicken skewer. We never order chicken at a restaurant but did so based on the recommendations here and boy, were we glad! We also loved the shwarma plate - we ordered two and roundly rejected the waiter’s attempt to persuade us to trade one of the plates for a salad to “balance” out the meal. Pfffftttt.

is it still make your own shwarma? I’m not sure how i feel about that. I love having Ori make mine…it tastes better.

But @PorkyBelly says its because of me that they switched to DIY style as Ori stared at me as I cut his beautiful creation to split with my fellow diners. He didn’t like that and had the waiter take it back and send us new one that he expertly cut in 3.

Yes, it’s still DIY. I can see how it would be better assembled by Chef (who was there on Saturday) but we still scarfed everything down. And the kids enjoyed eating just the meat with the sauce after the flatbread was gone.
