Checked out this new place in Richmond Hill today.
It's located at the northeast corner of Yonge and Weldrick. Enter the plaza off Weldrick to find it easier.
They have about 16 combos which pretty much all have rice, salad (mediterranean style with feta/olives/etc), and a meat/main.
Tried the chicken breast. It was so good. Well marinated, very flavorful without being overcooked and dry. They gave tons of rice. I usually eat Asian food and was not used to this rice. It's alot lighter, longer, and they don't stick together. Maybe Basmati rice?
Other main choices include beef, chicken leg, lamb shank, and other specialities I am ignorant about including Ghaimeh, Ghormeh sabzi, Chencheh grilled beef, Mirfakhraee grilled beef, Koobideh, Joojeh Bakhtiari chicken, Salari ground meat, Barg Kebab, Vaziri chicken kebab, Soultani beef, and Taftan Kebab.
It's more of a take out place with a couple counters and about 6 stools.
Sounds like a restaurant that's dominated with Persian specialties and the rice is prepared by removing much of its starchiness and then steamed to generate this delicate fluffy effect. Would you happen to know if they make Fesenjan? Or did you recite the entire menu?
