For added flavor and nutrition, there’s a dash of dried fruits and a sprinkling of lemon.

Khoresht Gheymeh with white Rice, Baghala Polo with shanks, chicken balls with tomato, saffron Iranian Gheymeh chicken, Ghourmeh Sabzi, and lamb and vegetable stew.

Our suggestion: try the Iranian kebab. A dish that is delicately infused with saffron and spices, marinated to perfection and charcoal grilled in a wood oven for a truly earthy flavor. Savor this with traditional sangak bread sprinkled with lemon juice and accompanied with fresh yoghurt. And for dessert, what better way to finish a delicious meal than with juicy sweet pomegranates and dates.

With so much to offer, we know that Iranian cuisine will win your heart, thrill your taste buds and leave you wanting more. Bon Appétit. Or as they say in Iran, nooshe jan.
