Hello My Persian Friend

I have this Persian friend, who was insistent on exposing me to Persian food the right way. I had once had Persian food at a birthday party, served buffet style. My friend cringed at the thought of it. I kind of cringed too, remembering the not so memorable flavours of cardamom overpowering dried out chicken kebabs, and rice that was anything but flavourful. My Persian friend is a smart guy, because after one taste I was certain that I’d love Persian food forever.

The ambiance at Shomal (North) restaurant was lovely. Not so good for videotaping though. Here’s the link  nonetheless. Enjoy!

  1. Hey ya!
    Have you heard of a persian restaurant called Karoon? Suppose to include live entertainment and dining. Going there in 2 weeks, give me your thoughts if you have been or heard anything about it 🙂

  2. Hilori, Vijaya told me to respond to you! LOL

    Karoon is pretty good, I would say my 3rd favourite Persian place in Toronto (although haven’t been there recently). Entertainment is a persian singer and also belly dancing – some real belly dancing – not the joke/fake belly dancing you see at places like Sultan’s Tent.
