The other day I wanted to try some Middle Eastern food other than Sababa, so I went to a place that incorrectly romanises its name as Baba ke baba.
It is more expensive than Sababa, and the taste is quite different. I ordered a set Moussaka meal. Cheese is not my thing, and the effect on my body afterward was not unexpected. However, even if I hadn’t, the fact was everything had tonnes of yoghurt put on it. From a compatibility standpoint, Sababa is better for me. It costs less and I won’t get lactose unless I specifically order a side dish like yoghurt.
The above dishes had fairly fresh ingredients, but they aren’t comparable to what I would buy at Sababa. Hence, I ordered both falafel and hummus in addition to the set meal. The hummus was creamier than at Sababa, and probably the creamiest I have tasted. It seemed closer to tahini than hummus. The amount of pita bread provided was laughable.
Compared to Sababa, the falafel was drier and smaller.
Dessert, however, was very good. They provided rice pudding:
Verdict: I will go to Sababa or try other middle eastern restaurants in the future. If I am in the Shi-da area (where this restaurant is located), I would go to the Out of India restaurant next door, which is suited much more toward my tastes.
