A no-frills Middle Eastern grocer and counter-service joint, Haji-Baba serves well all who enter: students from nearby ASU, lunching business-casual types, families, couples, and in-from-out-of-towners. For cheap ethnic eats in metro Phoenix, this place is hard to beat. The lamb tongue sandwich is one of the true wonders of Tempe eating; other standouts include the pita-wrapped chicken shawarma, babaghanooj, rice, hummus, and the Arizona pecan baklava. We're also big fans of the exotic aromas that have lived inside Haji-Baba for the past several decades. If we could bottle the scent of this place, we would. New Normal: Seating is limited inside this market-meets-restaurant, but takeout is always available.
