Tasty, flavourful, distinctively Iranian
If you’re looking for a new dining experience, head over to Kebab & Curry Lounge, an Iranian restaurant that offers a variety of meat and vegetarian dishes. From traditional rice-based stews to kebabs and burgers, it serves up delicious food at great prices. With its convenient location on Sheikh Zayed Road and excellent service, it’s no wonder that locals flock here!
Soups and Salads
Baghali Polo is an authentic Iranian soup made with a broth of split peas, onion, herbs and lemon juice. Traditionally it’s served on its own but I like to add some freshly baked bread for dipping. For a more filling meal you can add meat to your baghali polo by throwing in chunks of stewing lamb or lamb ribs which has been cooked on its own for about 1 hour until tender and succulent.
Fish and Meat Dishes
How can you tell if your meat or fish is fresh? An experienced chef will always know. Fresh ingredients are not only safe to eat, but they also guarantee top-quality taste and flavor. If you want to enjoy traditional Persian cuisine from Iran, don’t settle for anything less than freshness! At Bistango Teheran (Tehran), our chefs pride themselves on only using high-quality fresh ingredients when preparing our meals.
Many non-Iranians assume that all traditional Persian food is based on meat. While it’s true that kebabs, chicken, and fish are popular among Iranians, there are plenty of other options available if you know where to look. The most famous example is vegetarian khoresht, a traditional stew made with saffron rice, vegetables (including potatoes), herbs, and spices.
Naan and Flatbreads
Naan bread and all flatbreads are traditionally baked without yeast. These breads provide an alternative to traditional sliced bread and they can be used to mop up sauces and gravies. In Iran, Naan (or Nân) is eaten daily as a staple food. It’s also often served with kebabs and other Persian stews at dinner time or it may also be dipped into a variety of stews or gravies.
While Middle Eastern desserts are not as famous as their European counterparts, they are still absolutely delicious. Try Sabzeh Berenji or Koloocheh: In Iran, it is customary to eat a small bowl of cooked wheat grains with some clotted cream and brown sugar after meals. However, an option you may prefer is Koloocheh (pistachio rice pudding). Simply pour some boiling water over dry rice and pistachios, cover and let it stand for an hour or two.
