I just stumbled upon Dario's @ the old Togo's location In the VOn's shopping center at El camino and the 78. That was a mouthful.
Very fortunate stumble on my part. I went in to check out the menu and thanked myself for being curious.
THe place used to be a Togos sandwich shop. The owner got rid of togos yet still offers the same sandwiches. I would occaionally get a Togo's sub, but for the most part it did not pull me in. Apparantly in December the owner shut down the Togo's and reopened as a Mediteranean restaurant. Mediteranean is pretty broad and this menu is more Persian/ middle east. Which for me is fantastic. I love Persian food.
I ordered the lunch combo to go. It is comprised of a beef koobideh skewer and chicken barg skewer, both were very good, especially the barg. The basmati rice with tah cheen(saffron) rice was buttery and delicious. A charred Tomato was included as was a nice little salad.
THe food was great and I will be a frequent customer. In fact I will be taking my little lady and kids for dinner. I feel a persian binge coming on.
NOrth COunty is sorely lacking in ethnic cuisines and this is a welcome addition. By the way prices are very inexpensive. Dinners are only $8 bucks!!
