FRESH. NATURAL. LOCAL.

Baltimore is a city thriving, experiencing increased growth, personality, and culinary options. Baba's Kitchen, located between Federal Hill and Locust Point in South Baltimore, offers a healthy food experience, unique in its ambience and attitude and one Baltimore is searching for.

Our foods are rich with the Mediterranean flavors and traditions from thousands of years of local, indigenous cultures: Greek Spanokopita, Arabic Tabouleh, Italian Caprese salad and Moroccan CousCous. The dishes are fresh, natural, healthy, and enjoyable. We've designed our dining room to be "Mediterranean-Modern" to create true experiential dining.

We offer in-house and outdoor seating, takeout, and catering. We are environmentally friendly, and proudly offer recycling with an antique "self-bus" station, paper (vs. plastic) to-go bags, and real (re-usable) dinner plates. Because of limited seating, we encourage diners (esp. those taking advantage of our BYOB policy!) to enjoy themselves while being respectful of others that may be waiting.

In the book the Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan makes a case that today we have so much food to choose from, we are becoming de-sensitized to its tastes and ingredients: "We seemed to have arrived at a place where wisdom... about eating has been replaced by confusion and anxiety."

That is why Baba's hand-selects dishes known for their fresh taste, natural ingredients, and authentic tradition. If you eat with us, we trust you will enjoy the experience, and come again soon.

With Sincerity,

Farid Bishara Salloum
CFO (Chief Falafel Officer)

My father (Baba, in Arabic), Bishara Salloum, left the Middle East and came to the United States with his wife (and my mother) Claire in 1957. Leaving friends, family, a rich culture and a key position for a major airline, my father and his Uncle became family pioneers to this Brave New World... Click here for more of Baba's Story.


BABA'S RECIPES: FARID'S FALAFEL

While Falafel isn't the easiest dish to make, it's incredibly flavorful, amazingly healthy, and super-delicious! Good Falafel is impossible to find outside NYC and Jerusalem. When New Yorkers and people from the Old Country complement my Falafel, I know we've got a great dish!'

1 qt DRY chick peas
1 bunch Parsley, washed three times and dried
1 Yellow onion
3 Jalapeno Peppers
1/4 c. Coriander
1/4 c. Cumin
1/4 c. Black Pepper
1/8 c. Salt
1/4 c. Garlic powder
1/8 c. Garlic Puree
1 tsp Baking Soda

Soak beans overnight. Chop parsely, stems and all, coarse with onions and Jalapeno Peppers. In a food processor, blend chick peas with parsley/onion/pepper mix. Separately, add water to spices, mixing regularly until it becomes a "slurry". Hand mix the slurry with the chick pea mix. Pack balls together and deep fry until golden brown. Serve hot with Tahini.




Baba's will be CLOSED for Memorial Day
We wish everyone an awesome and safe holiday!
