NileGuide Expert tip:
Baba gets busy later in the evening--try to get your humus fix earlier in the day.
At Baba you can order your humus plain or with any number of toppings (ground meat; pine nuts;felafel etc) and it will arrive freshly made at your table ready to be sopped up by chewy pita. There's plenty of real food besides humus on the menu--main courses of spicy chicken wings; tender kebab plus an assortment of Middle Eastern-style salads. It can get noisy at Baba later in the evenings, and the place tends to attract groups of teenagers out to satisfy their humous cravings, but Baba is a good place to get acquainted with teh authentic version of one of the Middle East's most beloved dishes.
