New Persian place Albany

marlon | Sep 26, 200401:05 PM

I had to share a new Persian restaurant on San Pablo, just off Solano Av. It is where the Thai place closed a few months ago.

Small menu, but very authentic and with some great traditional dishes. All sorts of Kababs served with the saffron (real!) rice and roasted tomato. The meat was juicy and marinated in just the right spaices. The chicken was actually moist!!!

Appetizers are great, (except the dolmas which they buy canned or frozen) the roasted eggplantwith delightful olive oil and yogurt. The noodles and herbs could almost be a main dish (or soup). On top dry mint and herbs...amazing.

Every day a different Khoresh. We had the beef and preserved lemon and herbs. Meat soft and the sour lemon just right. Also a Zeresh Polo with the jeweled rice with barberries. Unfortunately no Zadich (burnt crust). Noodle dessert and the ice cream were yummy.

Service friendly and the place very agreeable...
