Ali’s New Beef Kabob

It’s been a while since I last visited Ali Baba’s Gyro joint with Mr. Wilson and Swoof. Today, I was pleased to see that Ali’s has recently introduced a marinated beef kabob to its menu, and couldn’t help but order this new item. Like their famed chicken kabob, for $5.99 you get the grilled, marinated beef kabob, a salad, bread, potatoes and dip. The heavenly scent emanating from the cellophane carton was driving me mad as I took this home, and someone I found the will power to take a snapshot of the meal before tearing into it.

Verdict: The beef kabob - which was cooked to about medium - was very good, albeit not as tender as I would have liked. I am not sure what kind of marinade they use, but it gave the beef a nice hint of flavor. Perhaps a bit more salt could have been used to retain some of the natural juices. Regardless, it was pretty good and I am not unhappy for ordering this new item, and my coffee table now is littered with greasy napkins and the remnants of this fine meal. However, in my opinion Ali’s chicken kabob (with the brushed on “tandoori” spice) is still the king of their menu.

How long does the beef kabob take to make? Is it like the chicken kabob which takes 10-15 minutes? Do you know if it’s a special on a particular day?

Sounds tasty… mmmm…

Eric, it took about the same as it would a chicken kabob. Good tuff indeed.

Good tuff indeed.

Uhh, Freudian slip, Mr. T?
