Eating on the Sofa Is Encouraged at Newark’s Ali Baba

When you walk into Ali Baba, you're immediately greeted with a decision: standard seating, or something a bit more fun? In the back dining room, Ali Baba recreates Middle Eastern homes with sofa seating. In the front, however, you're welcome to dine with more traditional American tables and chairs. No matter where you sit, one aspect of your meal remains the same: the fresh Middle Eastern cuisine.

Ali Baba especially earns raves for its different renditions of chicken. The Moroccan chicken comes highly recommended by regular customers, and it comes two ways: with a spicy harisa cumin sauce or lemon and olives. A duo of Moroccan-style salads round out the dish (carrot and green). The dajaj mashwy is another popular chicken dish, a recreation of a typical homemade eat. The chicken marinates and then bakes to golden and juicy, at which point chefs set it atop a bed of rice and drizzle it with garlic sauce. Pick tabouli salad or hummus on the side. You can also dig into a meat kebab, enjoy a plate piled with different vegetarian noshes, or try a pita wrap at Ali Baba.
