New Restaurant

Well, we’ve discovered yet another excellent restaurant. Soofi Restaurant on Muraqqabat street has opened within the last year. The atmosphere is quite pleasant – wood/upholstered chairs and linen table clothes. The food (Persian) was delicious and reasonably priced.

Flat bread, vegetables and lassi (yogurt drink) were complimentary. It was my favorite type of flat bread. Yes, there are several types of flat bread, but the subtleties of flat bread are not easily described. You have to experience it.

Above is the “Soofi Royal Kabab” entree. The menu says this feeds two. Combined with the mixed appetizer (baba ghanoush, hummus, two green salads), this can easily feed four for $35.00. Not knowing this, I ordered the clay pot lamb pictured below. It was so tender, I hardly had to chew.

We also tried two soups and found them delicious. This lovely meal was topped off with tea, which came with lime, anise, mint, sugar, and ginger.

Our party of three ate well, with some left overs to take home for $57.00. We found absolutely nothing to complain about at this restaurant and highly recommend it. You should, however, get there before the tourist bus arrives and unloads a crowd of hungry tourists.
