Meals Served: LunchDinner
All of the dishes at Ariana come with a hefty portion of white basmati rice dusted with tart, purple sumac powder (a shaker of which accessorizes each table). The dishes also all come with a green, mustardy chutney of cilantro and walnuts, a sauce that relies on housemade yogurt, a salad of diced tomato, cucumber and onion, and a slice of flatbread, which is baked twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Don’t go if you’re in a hurry. There could be a guy in front of you buying lamb tongues or pickled garlic heads that need to be fished out of the vat. When you order, much of the meal is made from scratch. But there’s no need to stay planted at your table while you wait—interesting grocery items like Bulgarian feta, organic Afghani figs, chickpea cookies and vats of grapeseed oil beg for your inspection.

The tiny restaurant in this grocery store may not look like much, but don’t be fooled: The menu boasts some of the best falafel and shawarma sandwiches around, as well as hummus that would be worth crossing a desert for. Not only that, but the grocery has an excellent selection of halal meats, and the in-house bakery produces fresh bread daily.

But then the moment of truth came. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes all agreed to shawarma, but how would Dan feel about it? The answer, in a shock to no one, was that I loved it. The beef shawarma platter ($12.45) not only came with a heaping mound of meat and tzatziki sauce, but also a whole helping of rice, a side of hummus, a small salad and some peppers for tasting. The flavor of the meat was just spicy enough to let you know it meant business, but not so hot to warrant needing a glass of water as to. The rice was about the best damn rice I’ve ever had, cooked to just the right consistency where it stuck together well enough to eat, but was never mushy or crunchy. The hummus was a great fit for the rest of the dish, and I ended up using it to pair with the leftover pies to ensure I didn’t miss out on anything.
Alibi recommends: The beef shawarma, spinach pie, baklava

Albuquerque - University

Kabab House

301 Cornell Dr SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
312-8949
Nearby Theater: SUB Theater (See Film Times)
Don’t let the tacky Bud Light signs fool you (or the fact that the restaurant’s name is spelled three different ways on them). This cozy little cafe serves up some great and authentic Persian food. The titular kabobs are as good as you could hope for—especially the bone-in lamb—and the staff is friendly and eager to guide you to the best parts of the menu. Watch out for the salted yogurt drink doogh, though—Westerners might not be prepared for its pungency.

Sahara’s menu is straightforward, listing expected meats and purées and several vegetarian dishes. Meats come either in a sandwich or combo platter, which are loaded with enough sides to appease the most voracious appetites. The falafel totally rocks the casbah, as do the chicken dishes, the velvety hummus and the beautifully composed salads. Don’t forget to get a nice, hot cup of spice-infused tea.

If you live in the west University area and are bored to tears by salad bars and onion rings, this is the place for you. Vibrant salads and a variety of little pickles accompany gorgeous Middle Eastern platters brimming with spiced, all-natural meats. The Jerusalem salad’s tomato, cucumber and tahini combination is bright and flavorful; perfect with the homemade pita and hummus. Chicken lovers will rejoice in the kabobs, which are tender and delicious. Don’t forget to drool over the huge assortment of housemade nut-and-honey-drenched pastries in the front case.
