The Saj Panino restaurant has opened its doors on the southern side of the Al Jassim Building in the Fujairah suburb of Faseel, off King Faysal Rd.
The offerings on the menu are an Italian/Lebanese blend which include panino appetizers, panino salad, mish pizza, panino plates, side orders, modern saj dishes, saj omelettes and a long list of fruit cocktails to wash the food down.
The specialty is cooking the bread and food on the saj (صاج) which is a round domed grill, like an upside down wok, that is often used in the Middle East, particularly in Lebanon.
The saj is used to make markouk, the delicious light, thin bread which in this restaurant is used for many of the items, including the shawarma panino and the panino salad.
The food is reasonably priced, the restaurant has been tastefully decorated and a delivery service is available.
Al Jassim Building, Faseel, Fujairah.
