Hamtramck's latest addition, Ali Baba Shish Kabab, will give away up to 1,000 free chicken shawarma today between noon and 3 p.m. as part of a Grand Opening celebration. Don't expect to try anything else on the menu until after 3 p.m. reports The Detroit Free Press. Owner Larry Shallah tells Sylvia Rector the staff will only serve chicken shawarma for the first three hours in order to keep up with demand. The restaurant, which seats 70, offers other Middle Eastern dishes including chicken tikka, beef kabob, and chicken kabob as well as fresh juices and milkshakes.
