Shirin – Repeat visit was a mixed bag

April 8, 2010 Gourmet, Iran No Comments

Tried the Ghormeh Sabzi, and herb stew, which kind of looked like a swamp. It was basically sauteed green herbs, some veal, red beans, and dried lime. It came with a side of basmati rice. It was ok. I’m sure it was authentic and anyone growing up with this stuff would’ve approved. Unfortunately, it didn’t really do much for me. Oh, well.

Last time, I got the salad, which was so underwhelming that I didn’t bother taking a photo (basically, it was a garden salad with ranch dressing). This time, I opted for the soup. A’ash-e Reshteh is what I think they call it. It’s a hearty vegetable soup with some noodles. I’m definitely getting this going forward. It was pretty thick, almost like a curry. mMmMmMm…. I actually liked this more than my stew.

ME got the koobideh, and since she’s tiny, I ate some too. It was delicious. The best I’ve had, seriously.

another friend got the shrimp. It was okay.

That’s that. You know I’ll be back.
