Al-Salaam Deli (Savannah, GA)
2311 Habersham St, Savannah, GA 31401, T: 912-447-0400
Al-Salaam Deli is a very small Middle Eastern deli that serves gyros, falafel, burgers, salads (unfortunately, this time they were out of Fattoosh), and Indian-type food (chicken curry and tikka). The people are very nice, but a bit slow.
We order a Chicken Curry Sandwich (5.99) and get it spicy rather than mild. The chicken is marinated and comes in a soft pita, which sucks up the spices of the more Indian-style sauce: excellent! We also order a Gyros with fries and a can of soda ($7.69). The gyros is very good: standard meat, but soft pita and subtle garlic sauce. The fries were very crispy and lightly spiced: excellent for generic fries.
Al-Salaam is a great little place that serves authentic Middle Eastern snack, though with a surprise Indian twist. It is well off the beaten track, but worth a visit!
