Try It: Saffron Grill’s Tongue (Yes, Tongue) Sandwich


I was dazzled by Saffron Grill’s delectable beef tongue sandwich this week – served simply with pickle wedges, sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and the kitchen’s creamy, proprietary “special dressing,” the sandwich came on a soft white bun and showcased this super-moist, flavorful meat. Served with pickled vegetables, it was a great lunch option at this friendly, family-owned restaurant in Folsom. Other not-to-miss menu items at Saffron Grill include the garlic-mint chicken and the fabulous, fragrant Persian eggplant dip (Mirza Ghasemi).
