Hummus is considered a Mediterranean staple because its stickiness holds the region's countries together. Celebrate harmony with today's Groupon: for $18, you get Lebanese and Mediterranean entrees for two at Ali Baba Las Vegas (a $36 value). This deal is valid on entrees up to $18 or can be used toward two higher-priced entrees.
In Ali Baba's dining room, murals of star-lit deserts and sparkling coasts paired with Lebanese, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern entrees of seafood, lamb, beef, and chicken whisk diners away to exotic locales. A duo of traditional Lebanese sauces cloaks the lightly spicy baked fish of samke harra, and battalions of spices and vegetables invade platters to take over a roasted lamb shank. Beef and lamb marinate in traditional spices, using a vertical broiler's time-travelling capabilities to emerge 12 hours later as beef shawarma drizzled with tahini sauce and hummus. Fresh garlic, cilantro, and lemon juice spangle a dish of spicy shredded chicken side-kicked by onions, peppers, and tomatoes.
In addition to transporting taste buds to the Mediterranean, Ali Baba transports the other senses to the enchanting region with a live band, singers, and belly-dancing, which take place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday starting at 9 p.m. Beautiful dancers garbed in traditional sequined skirts, sparkly tops, and bowties shimmy the night away until dawn's pink light beckons everyone home. Though this Groupon is only valid for entrees, Ali Baba's also features a hooka lounge to relax in after meals.
