Best Iranian in the Kensington AREA
Any reco"s of Iranian around Kensington?
We went for the 1st time to Mohsen (having gone regularly to Alounak and, even more often, to Patogh).
- Chicken was superior at Moshen. Best (most flavorful and moist) chicken we've ever had. How do they achieve that? We're frankly curious.
- For lamb skewers (either fillet or minced), on the other hand, we still prefer Patogh. Then we'd rank Mohsen. Then (a very close third) Alounak.
- We especially liked an aubergine/mint/walnut appetizer at Mohsen.
- We also especially liked the bread at Mohsen.
If anyone knows of other Mohsen style (read unpretentious and affordable, and yet great chow) places serving any type of food (we're covered when it comes to Iranian!) in Bayswater/Paddington/Kensington/Notting Hill/etc area, do let us know!
I think Yas in Kensington Olympia is really good. They have delicious bread that comes straight out of a brick oven to the table plus a variety of traditional Persian dips and stews. It's also open unit 5am! Very chilled and relaxing place to go with friends.
