For Middle Eastern cuisine in Hoboken, there’s no regime change needed!
As Hoboken’s “Arab Spring” moves into summer, the massive uprising of falafel joints in the geographic middle eastern portion of town has sparked ongoing protests as to which of the new regimes can best serve the populace. But while these fledgling gastronomies struggle to occupy the territory, one house continues to dominate the region.
Ali Baba Middle Eastern Restaurant at 912 Washington Street has been in power since 1983—that’s back before Reagan went after Khadafi/Gaddaffi/Qadafi—and throughout their benevolent ascendancy, this family-run operation has served the finest curries, kuftas and kebabs off a menu rich in chicken, beef, lamb or even vegetarian dishes.
Sure, Ali Baba delivers… but then you’ll miss out on the dramatic Middle Eastern décor and authentic Old World ambiance—complete with hookah service and a cup of coffee that’s guaranteed to rock your Casbah.
Stop by and see why Ali Baba reigns supreme on the west bank of the Hudson for nearly 30 years, and could very well do so for 30 more, insha’allah…
