OC Weekly's Description
Is there a mound of starch more glorious than Persian rice? Here, it's gloriously loose, freeflowing like sand in an hourglass, and always two-toned with a stripe of saffron in a sea of virgin white. Even the pan leavings, called tadig -- that burnt, crispy, brown crust that forms at the bottom of the rice pot -- is sold as a featured appetizer with your choice of dipping sauce. The rest becomes fodder for plates upon plates of char-burnished kebabs. With each fragrant grain, long and slender, you can taste the how the basmati is meticulously coddled and gently steamed to a wispy fluffiness with a touch of yogurt, salt and sugar.
Tips from foursquare
The koobideh kebab — ground beef formed into a torpedo — is the juicy ideal of what a kebab can be, the meat made almost silken amid the flames.
Very good Beef Koobideh.
Their Persian rice is excellent
No lunch specials on Sat & Sun. Dinner prices only.
Checkout Boneless Chicken Sandwich, it's awesome.
