Announcing a new Meetup for Vegetarian Meetup Group!
What: Ali Baba in JULY 2012
When: Saturday, July 14,[masked]:00 PM
Where: Ali Baba
12021 Lorain Ave
Cleveland, OH 44111
Ali Baba's awesome owner and chef, Linda, has agreed to host us again. For those who have made it in the past, you know what a great meal and deal it is. It's also a great meetup with lots of good conversational buzz going on punctuated with plenty of 'yums'. If you have not yet been, have a look at the reviews from our previous outings there and consider joining us. You are a stranger but once.
The cuisine is Lebanese, the food is totally delicious and they speak fluent vegan. The pita bread will be whole wheat ( pinch me).
The menu for our dinner will be the chef's choice, whatever Linda thinks is good, and we will be served family-style, passing the serving dishes down the table, which I think is way cool. The price is $15, which includes tax, tip and house tea. Some of the dishes are prepared with produce from the owner's own garden. The food here is absolutely delectable and you won't believe it's only fifteen bucks! Everything will be totally vegan.
Ali Baba is a small place, and we are limited to 20 so reserve as soon as you know you want to come. Also please be kind and change your reservation if your schedule changes and you are unable to attend. If there is a waiting list, that allows others to move up and have a confirmed reservation.
NOTE: Ali Baba does NOT accept credit or debit cards. Cash is best.
Ali Baba is an independent, family owned and run kind of operation, the kind I like to support and chances are you do too.
This place is so home spun that there's no web site. A 'net search will only bring up the address and phone number which is [masked]. Since this is early on a weekend, there will be plenty of time for other activities after we eat. Any thoughts on activities for after are always welcomed.
Don't let the location be an issue This wonderful restaurant is the best-kept culinary secret in town. It's as good a Lebanese place as you're going to find and the best I've ever had.
Please refrain from using heavy fragrances. They can aggravate asthma and trigger migraines. Let's save our noses for the wonderful aromas from Linda's kitchen.
If you bring a guest, spouse, etc, who is not veg, please ask them to refrain from ordering meat. Not everyone wants to see or smell it.
Our calendar has a lot of empty space on it, so please feel free to suggest some ideas for meetups; let's put some dates on the calendar, especially some picnics! let's have some fun this summer while enjoying good food and each others company!
