The Original Sab-E-Lee recently opened a new location in Rancho Penasquitos.
After Kirk first reported of a new Sab-E-Lee was opening, I was really excited to check it out. I’ve always enjoyed the original one, but the location is so tiny that we rarely dine in. The newer location is a little bigger so you can actually bring a bigger group of people to go eat.
The menu is very similar to the original location.
I’ve been a fan of the beef larb so it was interesting to try the duck one. It was a little on the spicy side, but enjoyable.
Thai Sausage Fried Rice
I liked the fried rice itself, but wished there were more pieces of sausage. I usually get the sausage by itself and think next time I’ll do that again and then order a different fried rice.
This was a first for me. I thought the noodles were a little too soft and mushy. Also even though we ordered the same level of spice for all the dishes, this one barely had any spice.
This was pretty good and always one of my favorites. It packed quite a bit of spice, even at a level 3 spice.
This was my first try with their beef jerky. It was basically what I thought it would taste like, a homemade version of beef jerky without all the preservatives.
We also got an order of sticky rice. I love the little container it comes in. I’ve always felt the sticky rice here is a little on the hard side.
Overall, we had a good lunch here. The food quality was very similar to the original Sab E Lee. I’d rather visit this location because it has more seating more. I’ll definitely be coming back soon with others for my Thai food fix. Here is the full menu:

Of course, the most enjoyable part was the company we got to eat with. Eating with food bloggers usually also means yummy treats too. On this occasion we were treated to some delicious chocolate espresso mochi cake from CC and some walnut candy and pineapple cakes from Jinxi. These didn’t even last the afternoon before DH and I polished them off.
