Fodor's Review

Wonderous Persian dips, unleavened taftoon breads, small tasty plates, steaming lamb bakes, and grilled kebabs are found at this lantern-filled Aladdin's Cave, a warm Iranian canteen beloved by hoards of locals. Lines form onto Westbourne Grove for the hot pita and taftoon breads straight from the clay oven by the door, and you may have to wait to get in. Once inside, try grilled eggplant puree with walnuts, feta, mint, and tarragon, the Alounak kebabs, skewered marinated

lamb with rice and grilled tomatoes, or the Zereshk polo—pungent saffron chicken with sweet-and-sour Iranian forest berries. Enjoy the Persian black cardamon teas and sweets, and lime juice–and-pistachio faloodeh Persian sorbet, but know that the sour yogurt drinks are not to everyone's taste.
