Farsi, Dubai; Delectable Persian Kebabs

SHARE:

Having a meeting at the Executive Towers, Dubai quickly became an exercise in Persian Dining. My host took me down to Farsi Restaruant (not to be confused with the Farzi Cafe), and the first thing I saw was the limited buffet. You could actually take the small buffet for the staples and order out kebabs to make it a memorable meal.







While I've come to expect excellent hummus and baba ganoush and the likes in a restaurant like this, there was this broth that was on the buffet that I saw the locals pour on and top off loads of fried onions. As I found out later, this was called the Ashe Reshte, a traditional Persian soup made with beans and noodles, this was wholesome and supremely flavourful. I gulped down every morsel of the soup.

The two star dishes were the kebabs, one a plate of lamb ribs and the other, a platter of chicken, beef and fish. Both were served with generous amounts of French Fries and a salad with large broccoli and greens. The platter was excellent with the beef taking the cake, simply because of the way the meat melted in the mouth. While this is not as difficult with chicken and certainly not difficult with fish, the way the beef melted made it the dish to look out for. The lamb was excellent. The mid east has really learnt to make the best of the lambs and it is difficult to find good places messing it up, so clearly, Dubai is a great place for lamb!

We got some white rice with saffron to go along, but the meats didn't need anything to go with. They were simply both the hero and the sidekick.

We finished off with some coffee and a beautiful Halva made with wheat and topped with saffron and pistachios.

While it was meant to be a quick lunch, the food was so good that we spoke at lunch and it didn't mess anything up. And I got a great lunch in the bargain.
