Persian Feast

While my dad was here we dined at Rumi's Kitchen, an Iranian restaurant I've been wanting to try for quite some time. We really enjoyed our meal, especially the appetizer dips that we ordered as well as the succulent meats - my favorite was the ground chuck kabob. The entrees are HUGE, especially considering they bring you lots of fresh flat bread and a plate of cheese, butter, mint & walnuts to start. The desserts were also tasty, especially the creme brulee, which had a tea flavor and the traditional Iranian ice cream, which I didn't manage to photograph. This palce is definitely worth a trip OTP - and for me that takes a lot!

Front: Shirazi Salad; Back left: Mast mousir (yogurt garlic dip); Back right: Borani spinach (spinach onion dip).

Delicious, fresh flatbread.

Baklava cheesecake and a wonderful creme brulee
