ISO a great Persian restaurant

I have a craving for a great Khoresht Ghaimeh. What is the Persian place in the city?

      Thanks, they don't have it. It is a traditional and widely served lamb stew.

        They have something called Dizzy (not particularly sounds Persian, and not many references to this in other sources), could that cut it?

          1. re: bigfellow

            No what I meant was they could be calling Khoresht Ghaimeh dizzy, considering that searching "dizzy" and "persian" doesn't bring up any references and the owners insist that this is a very traditional dish. Anyhoo...

            You're spelling it incorrectly which is why you probably can't find it in other sources. It's dizi or abgusht (abgoosht).

            It's something completely different than khoresht ghaimeh.

                Ah, my bad.

                It is a very traditional, old and popular dish in Iran though. I've had it many a time in Iran.

      2. My Iranian friends from school a while back told me they thought the best Persian resto in the city is Tehran on de Maisonneuve near Vendome metro. You might see if they have that dish.

        5065 Boulevard De Maisonneuve W

        1. There's also Maison Du Kebab on Atwater but I think they do mostly...kebabs! There are 2-3 small Iranian restos on Sherbrooke west of Decarie near Akhavan but I don't recall their names or their menus. Quartier Perse on Decarie may have it.
