Bay Area’s SAJJ Mediterranean Coming to OC


SAJJ Mediterranean, the Bay Area-based family of restaurants and food trucks known for fresh Middle Eastern eats, will open their first SoCal locations in Orange County. The first location will open soon in Rancho Santa Margarita, and the second in Irvine at the Sand Canyon Plaza in the spring.

Since first opening doors in 2012, SAJJ has made a name for itself for offering traditional Mediterranean dishes that take guests on a culinary adventure. SAJJ was named in San Francisco Magazine’s ‘Best Fast-Dining Spots in the Bay Area,’ PureWow’s ‘13 Best New Restaurants in San Francisco,’ and as one of the best falafels in the Bay Area by Zagat SF.

Their high-quality cuisine begins with locally-sourced produce and antibiotic- and hormone-free Halal meats to create fresh, healthy, and sustainable menu offerings. To create an experience that is inviting and inclusive to everyone, SAJJ also offers a variety of gluten-free and vegan dishes.

The menu is fully customizable offering chicken or steak shawarma, pomegranate chicken, falafel, or shawafel (shawarma and falafel combined) served in a choice of pita bread, sajj wrap, salad, or turmeric rice bowl. You can also customize your meal with unlimited toppings and sauces, including hummus, baba ganoush, cilantro mint chutney, tahini, tzatziki, peri peri and more.

All entrees are served with complimentary lentil soup, while fries, pita chips, and Baklava can be purchased as additional sides.

Traditional Middle Eastern beverages, like tamarind and mint and strawberry lemonades, are made fresh in-house and will be available at both of SAJJ’s Orange County locations.

In addition to their regular menu selection, SAJJ’s Orange County locations will offer catering services with delivery and setup provided by SAJJ. For the full catering menu and terms, and for more information about SAJJ, visit
