Good Persian in South OC - House of Kabob in Lake Forest

House of Kabob is in Lake Forest not too far from Portola Parkway on the eastern side of Lake Forest. They are right off the corner of Dimension and Lake Forest, behind the Baja Fresh.

Someone recommended House of Kabob as a good place for Persian food. They were right. It was VERY good. Not a big place. Actually more of a take out place with some nice decor and tables than a true full service restaurant. However, very comfortable to sit and eat. Don't get me wrong, service and food were great.

The person who recommended this place told me that the owners are really big into the catering business, and that is the primary business in the back. However, the food here is terrific. So good that we are thinking about having them cater a party sometime soon.

We had the Hummus - traditional and good. Tadiq, a Persion crusty rice dish, with all three sauces and it was great. Exactly what we wanted from this appetizer. We had a couple of orders of Kabob Barg, or sometimes known as Chelo Kabab Barg, filet that is butterflied very flat and served with the traditional Persian long grain aromatic rice. Excellent Barg. Also had some Lubia Polo a rice dish that has beef and green beans mixed in with a savory saffron (or turmeric) based flavoring giving the rice an orange color. Lubia Polo is one of my favorite rice dishes and they executed it well here.

Prices are reasonable and service is good. We will definitely be going back.
