I've been envious of fellow blogger (KirkK) over at mmm yoso!!! for all his posts about Sab-e-lee. I have yet to try it. Mostly since it's not in my area and I don't like driving much on the freeway. When I read about Sab-e-lee 2 opening up, I jumped at the chance to try since it was closer to where I live.
I believe this was the locatin of Thai Style Restaurant. I had only one experience with the food when it was Thai Style . I was disappointed that they didn't have sticky rice and their papaya salad was not what I had expected. I'm Lao and had never had the Thai style papaya salad.
So back to Sab-e-lee...this is what you see when you enter. I can't remember if the decor has changed since Thai Style. Looked the same to me. It was empty when we entered. I didn't expect any customers since it was 3pm.
And this is the left side. Plenty of seating. We ordered our food to go.
We started off with the fresh rolls. They were filled with shrimp, glass noodles, lettuce, and bean sprouts. They were 'okay'. The dipping sauce was a bit too sweet for me. I guess I prefer the hoisin/peanut dipping sauce.Here is the portion of the sticky rice for carry out. Rather small. This is the crying tiger. I will always eat grilled beef if it's not dry and served with some kind of jeow. This was filling.
