cornflake dreams.: sunday dinner- persian.

12.06.2011

sunday dinner- persian.

every week h and i go out for sunday dinner with his family (dad + brother + his fiance). the dinner's are a great way to get together before the work-week and spend some quality time together. we take turns picking out the restaurant and this week it was my pick. i chose my favorite persian restaurant: noon-o-kabob in albany park [4651 N. Kedzie Ave, Chicago]:


h's family is 100% persian and they love this place...so you know it has to be good. we've gone quite a few times and i always look forward to the mossir [homemade yogurt with shallots}, feta cheese, fresh parsley and pita bread. i also love the chenjeh and joujeh [steak & chicken kabobs with steamed tomatoes, dill rice with lima beans]. whenever i order this dish i usually mix in some mossir to create a cremier texture with my rice (trust me try it sometime!). if you're looking for authentic persian food stop by - and bring an appetite- the portions are huge so i always have leftovers.

what kinds of food are you loving right now?

xo, 
jillian

  8. Yay! I love that you are going to be sharing these. This restaurant seems super far, otherwise it looks right up my alley. Are there other Persian spots that are closer? If so, we will have to plan a date to go to one. :)

  13. I FREAKING LOVE KABOB!

    And while we are on that note: When i was living in Bordeaux the Hubs came to visit me and we ate in some French places and I cooked. When we went to Paris we ate kabobs the first night . . . and then the second night . . . and then the third. We ate a different places though - on Lebanese, one Turkish, and I can't remember the other.
