Pars report

Finally made it to this place, even though it's like 100 yards from home. You really must go, and help such a nice-looking, friendly place with great Persian food survive in such a restaurant dead zone.

When you sit down, they put flatbread in the oven for you and it comes out hot and yummy. The waitress was extremely helpful in explaining the menu, what was good with what, and how we could customize things. We got an appetizer portion of Khoresht Gheimeh served over special crispy rice (can't remember name). It was not on the menu, but she explained that we could do it.

Had both eggplant appetizers; Kashkeh Bademjan and Mirza Ghasemi. They are both so good, yet completely different. The 1st is pure eggplant meat, creamy without being rich, with delicious sprinkled stuff on top (the menu says crushed walnuts and a touch of mint, but I couldn't identify it as such). The 2nd one is smoky, with lots of tomato. Also had the yogurt and spinach; not too sour, went well with everything else.

Then we had Kabab Kobideh made with chicken (a special of the day); tender ground, broiled chicken kebabs with herbs. We got it with the sour cherry rice, which was pink and a bit sweet, but really nice. The portions were big... the service was really kind and friendly. We will definitely be back.
