Village Voice's Description
Offering an expansive combination of Syrian, Palestinian, and North African fare, Ali Baba provides a handful of dishes unavailable in the usual restaurant of this genre. Any of the homestyle lamb stews --which come in with a big plate of yellow rice--are totally dope, including one made with dried baby okra, and another featuring peas, carrots, and potatoes, both with an exceptional broth. Hummus is served Palestinian-style with chopped beef or cubed lamb, and the menu also dabbles in Moroccan cous cous, and the Syrian deep-fried, cracked wheat meat pies called kibbeh.
