Options for Persian New Year?
I've been going to Kebab Bazaar in Clarendon for their usual annual special buffet. But it's gotten monotonous to me, even once a year. I want to savor something different this year...
I called Shamshiri but the guy on the phone said they offer *something?* at the usual price. I couldn't understand him. Does anyone know what they offer or of any other Persian place that offers something special on No-Rooz? Thanks.
thanks for the suggestion pamd, it's a bit out of the way but perhaps if i can persuade my friends :-)
In case they were speaking Farsi when you called, and you're interested in trying again:
sabzi poli=herbed rice
That's the traditional Iranian New Year dish. Hopefully the local 'hounds will weigh in with recommendations on where the sabzi polo and mahi are good. Sal-e no mobarak (Happy new year)!
re: rose water
i had a farsi speaker call back who confirmed exactly what you said. btw, i also called kebab bazaar and learned they are offering their special buffet on Wednesday lunch and dinner. (this seems to be a departure from last year when they offered it all day new years eve and lunch on new years.)
