SAJJ Mediterranean in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

SAJJ Mediterranean opened with its newest location in Rancho Santa Margarita, and I got to visit a little over a week ago. SAJJ has an amazing customizable concept; build your own wrap, salad bowl, rice bowl, or stuffed pita bread with a variety of fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients. Enjoy Mediterranean favorites like shawarma and falafel with a fast, effortless and modern twist. Don't forget to add on a side of fries, pita chips & hummus or baklava to complete your meal; you even receive a complimentary lentil soup! See the entire menu here

Join SAJJ for their grand opening weekend Thursday March 15 - Sunday March 18. During my visit, I enjoyed the falafel wrap, Scott had the steak shawarma bowl and we both shared chips and hummus and baklava. I also loved the mint lemonade - and you can enjoy all that too. The weekend’s events will kick-off on Thursday with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Rancho Santa Margarita city officials and Chamber of Commerce members. Additionally, all guests who visit SAJJ on 3/15 between 11:30 AM and 2 PM will receive a FREE entree

All weekend long, SAJJ is offering two ways to win great prizes: 

1. Guests can drop their business card in-store for a chance to win a catered party for 10 people.
2. Guests who post a photo of their meal on Instagram with the hashtag #ILOVESAJJ and mention what they love about the Mediterranean eatery in the caption will be entered to win a $100 SAJJ gift card. 

To further make a splash in the new community, SAJJ will be donating 10% of the weekend’s sales to local schools in Rancho Santa Margarita.
