just another thumbs-up to Pamir Persian in the EPM

patrick | Nov 4, 200202:22 PM

Went to Pamir (afghan/persian cuisine) in the Emeryville public market yesterday. As always, we got one order of the chelo-kebab-e-barah, the lamb variety, to share. As always, the order was grilled fresh and took about five minutes. As always, it was incredibly delicious food, a plate of tasty meat, saffron rice, a salad, a little spicy vinegary sauce for the lamb, and a ladle of "spinach beans," a curry-like preparation of red beans and pureed spinach.

The extra special touch was that the person who handled our order seemed to notice mid-service that we were ordering for two, so he piled on a little extra rice and gave us two pieces of bread and a cup of water along with the complimentary soda. Total outlay was $7.50.

I love this place and am so grateful that they stuck out the post-9/11 fallout. This should not be news to anyone, but try it if you haven't.

Oh, and PS, there's a nice bike-lane way to get there by bike: if you take 40th St west from Oakland to E-ville, there is a bike lane that takes you over the train tracks and all the way into the market. A bit out of the way from Berkeley etc, but better than riding over Powell St, and more glorious and breezy than taking the Amtrak elevator.
