Saj & Co. - The kitchen of Neo-Nastalgia

Well here I blew my World Vegan Month 2018 but frankly, I could have easily stayed true as there are vegan choices at Saj&Co. I just had to try the Labneh though....and that led to a taste of the roast beef that we got for Marie. Saj&Co is one of my favourite new restaurants that I have tried in a long time. Funky and cool with amazing music (I am listening to Le Couleur as I write this) and eclectic decor (I was pretty sure that I would find Nietzsche on their book shelves but instead there was decor and architecture). I usually arrive home with some extra thumb and feet photos but this time I managed to delete my best ambiance photos.
You will just have to look on Google or Yelp (Sorry! Was that out loud?) The food though is the main thing, correct?
We started with the Labneh ( a sort of pressed yogurt cheese) Plate, which was delicious . I have fallen stupid in love with the house recipe flatbread of rye and buckwheat dough. It is amazing! On the side were pickled vegetables, cucumber and tomato and some mighty fine olives.
We also tried the Folks Full. Same but with house cooked Fava beans. Fava could be my favourite beans in the world and this dish was full on vegan! Could have used salt but picture me weak in the knees anyway!
Don't be upset with Marie but she doesn't get the vegan thing (so far). Saj& Co does accommodate the viscous carnivores in our midst (OK. I am usually one also). The Hummy Yummy includes roast beef, white cheddar, wonderful hummus and a refreshing hit of lemon from somewhere! 
We finished up with a Baklava looking thing that was in a container on the counter tempting the hell out of us! Honey, phylo and I'm just not really sure what else but don't pass this up!
This is kind of a tiny place but so cool and so friendly. A saj by the way, is a domed flat top (?) which I do not have a picture of (see above). We will update this review as I am feeling warm and fuzzy about what we enjoyed tonight. Do you think of Lebanese as falafel and shawarma? I love that stuff but Saj&Co proves there is so much more!
