The gyros, the Middle-Eastern eatery's equivalent of the Big Mac, cannot be resisted. A kebab is meat on a stick. How can you beat that? The chickpea has various uses, all of them delicious. The pita is a revelation in utility and scrumptiousness. Who knew that the best place locally to indulge in such fare was an unassuming storefront on Speedway Boulevard? Well, our readers did. Whether you're taking food home or eating in the small, ultra-casual dining area, a visit to Ali Baba is not so much a treat as a weekly necessity. Its newly expanded Middle-Eastern grocery store has all you need to make a meal yourself.
