Haji Baba Middle Eastern Food

1513 E. Apache Blvd. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-894-1905

Location Description:

Mouth-watering Middle Eastern eats served up in a bustling cafe that shares space with an equally bustling Middle Eastern deli-market. Outstanding hummus, and mind-blowing baba ghanouj, as well as other traditional faves such as lamb tongue, and chicken and beef shawarma. Rice to die for. Great for nearby ASU students looking for cheap ethnic eats, or just anyone who loves the cuisine from this part of the planet.
