Tag: Persian cuisine
Having dinner at Galleria on New Cavendish Street. As you already know, I’m a huge fan of Persian food. It’s simply so delicious. And yes I drink tea with my food, a strange habit I picked up in Russia.
what are you up to today? I’m off work but have to go in for a brief meeting before meeting a friend who is visiting from Australia. I’m taking him to Galleria restaurant on new Cavendish street so that he can try Persian cuisine for the first time. Tonight I’m attending a Zumba class at the gym and I can’t wait… have you ever tried it? It’s so much fun and such amazing exercise.
I had such a lovely surprise at work yesterday, my adorable friend/colleague brought a little gift in for me. The wrapping was so sweet that I didn’t want to open it. I love my beautiful ring, thank you N !!!
Persian cuisine is without a doubt one of the best, and I’m not just saying that because of my Persian roots. It’s simply delicious. It doesn’t taste anything like Lebanese or Turkish food, the reason I say this is that some people think all Middle Eastern food is the same. The best thing about the Persian cuisine is how diverse it is and healthy, spiced with herbs and fruits such as plums, pomegranates, prunes, apricots etc.
I can go on and on about my favourite dishes such as Khoreshte Bademjoon or Zereshk pollo ba morgh but it won’t make sense unless you actually try it. So my lovelies, if you do one thing this weekend, let that be trying Persian food :)
If you happen to live in London then I have to share my latest discovery with you. I have been to every single Persian restaurant in London and there are many. The best one so far is a new place that opened up on Portobello road a few months back called Anar (it means pomegranate). I am delighted since I live only a short walk away from this place. The restaurant has outdoor serving which is great for the summer and they have alcohol licence. The staff is super friendly and the decor is beautiful. The menu has something for everyone and the food is absolutely delicious. Best part is that they do home delivery in case you are too lazy to leave your house. Here are some photos from out last visit there.
The sign says Anar in Farsi which means pomegranate.
