  1. I felt like scoring a Detroit style pie from Della Barba, but @eatruneat wasn't so sure. I inquired with her as to what she wanted, but she was unsure. I suggested that we try Rumi's Kitchen as I read it was very good and it would give us just the short walk our dog needed. We looked over the menu and decided to go with the Shirazi Salad and Mirza Ghasemi to start and Duck Fesenjoon and Chinjeh Lubia Polo for our 'Feast'. We walked over and found the patio at socially distancing capacity despite the chilly weather outside with propane heating towers ablaze. I had to wait outside with the
  2. I hadn't been to Amoo's in a couple of years, but when I saw that Joe's Gourmet Burgers was on holiday break, I decided to drive the extra mile up to Chesterbrook. In a hurry, I asked for something quick, and the owner directed me toward the stews, which she said would only take about five minutes. The Geymeh ($9.95) was a large portion of food, with decent rice as a base. When I eat Persian stews as carryout, I generally just pour everything on and begin scarfing, so I dumped the whole container of split peas, beef cubes, tomato sauce, saffron, dried lime, and potatoes (frozen french fries) o
  3. I'm going to throw down the gauntlet and say that the unassuming storefront Shish Kabob Cafe in Katy puts out the absolute best kabobs in the Houston area (yes, even better than Bijan, though their rice is better). I've been a handful of times, tried lamb, beef, chicken in whole and ground forms, and not once have I had anything less than perfectly cooked meat. Served with buttery rice, grilled tomatoes, and plastic cutlery. This isn't fine dining, but it's really damn good. Start with a small serving of shirazi, and ask for a bit of the crispy tadigh.
  4. How intimidating can a chicken kebob and rice be? Perhaps it's the name of the restaurant but Shamshiry is the best Persian restaurant in the entire D. C. area. Of course they do have more intimidating things like a salmon kebob....
  5. A friend of mine who is intimately familiar with this type of food says Kabob Palace is the best. Didn't see a post for it so I shall mention it here. Better than Ravi, apparently.
  6. I've been driving down Georgetown Pike for twenty years or so, and don't ever remember Kabob Place not being in downtown Great Falls, although it has changed ownership fairly recently. It's now operated, I believe, by the Ternisky family (if you've ever come across a pediatric dentist named Ternisky in Fairfax County, that's the father). These folks also own Romantica Pizzeria next door, and I suspect they might have taken control of Kabob Place from the previous owners, who were Persian, due to its proximity. Kabob Place used to be extremely expensive for what it was - in fact, I believe
  7. An unplanned visit to Alborz with my friend's Persian friend led me to quite a surprise. At first look, this unsuspecting Persian Kabob joint looked like a liquor store. However, once you are inside, it is quite an amazing contrast. As far as service is concerned, they are obviously very proud of their restaurant and their food that you feel the sincerity in their hospitality. One other noticeable attribute of this place is that Persians actually eat there. That is a great sign. The menu is pretty simple, pricing is about the same as Moby Dick's. However, these folks serve Cornish H
  8. We just had lunch at Cafe Shiraz, a little Iranian place in the Bradlee Shopping Center on King Street, and I wish we had been going more. We were served by the owners, who were very gracious, and the food was great. I ordered hot tea and it was Persian black tea brewed from leaves. (Bells and sirens are going off in any tea lover's head right now. The absence of the insipid Lipton Yellow Label is enough to recommend any restaurant.) The yogurt is made fresh in house, the yogurt sauce with dill was fantastic, the chickpea salad was wonderfully fresh with mild onion, mint, and what I assume wer
  9. A new neighborhood kebob spot from the folks behind Nooshi and (I think) Moby Dick. Soft opening tonight for neighbors with 50% off of all checks. Lovely decor and a small but tasty menu... Reasonable prices. "Fast casual" with table service and a full bar. A good addition to the neighborhood. Look forward to the Nooshi-esque concept opening upstairs from it in coming months.
  10. Fairly expensive, indeed. I'm used to kabobs (with rice and chick-peas) for about $9. Now, if they toast the rice on the bottom of the pan so that you get that nice crunchy, browned rice...
  11. One of my goals for the New Year coming up was to be able to create a brunch menu that caters to everyone. With that in mind, It always bothered me that there no restaurants in DC area that serve Persian brunch. I never understood why Italian, French and American restaurants get so much more hype then Persian cuisines. Persian food is as amazing if not more. In Iran you cant just slap a NY strip on the grill and call it the day! You will be disgraced.. no one will ever eat your food. I mean dont get me wrong, I love the western cuisine, a lot of what I cook consists of it. Its good if youre cr
  12. Persian style food truck. You have your choice of meat over rice, salad or in a sandwich. Your choices are chicken or gyros. The gyros comes cubed. At first glance, the cubes look like layered meat, but I bet its just extruded meat stuff in a thin sheet folded up on itself to look more real. The chicken is real and very tasty. The gyros is good for that type of thing. I had the combo over salad which was advertised as a Shirazi salad, but had lettuce in it and not very much sumac. Nitpic: the hot sauce was not a Persian style but Sriracha. SUpermarket feta but at least not too muc
  13. Saffron - Seneca Hill Plaza 1025A Seneca Road Great Falls, VA 22066 This small restaurant has a small selection of tasty treats IMHO. Hubby and I have eaten here more than once and have enjoyed it each time. The staff spoke farsi and excellent english and were very accomodating as usual. Tonight we shared hummus with lots of pita (and they refilled us with fresh hand-made pita when it ran low) and also a plate of dolmas (stuffed grape leaves) appetizers. They gave the usual free salad type amuse bouche and yogurt with cucumbers. We both got the special #2 I believe it is... lamb cubes o
  14. Sabzi moved into the old Bombay Garden space and has been open for a few months now. A group from my office stopped in a few weeks ago and we enjoyed everything we tried. It may take a while to get your food, because they are grilling each skewer as it is ordered. The chicken kabob seems to be the best bet - they have a few different spicings and were nicely charred, but still tender and flavorful. The sandwiches are a good value - they are a whole kabob skewer's worth of meat served over the pita and veg. I think the bread is made in-house, and at any rate it is served warm and worth eati
