The Persian Restaurant

Shop 5, Harries Rd, Coorparoo, Qld

The menu at this comfortable restaurant allows a good range of vegetarian dishes to be sampled. For starters you can try the fattoush, an old Middle Eastern favourite of greens, cucumber, tomato, parsley and toasted bread (ours came without bread, but the staff brought another bowl.) There is a wonderfully tasty dish of aubergine and tomato served with thin Persian bread, or you could try the falafel and hummus that come as part of non-vegetarian platters. The main meals include Addas Polo, made up of rice with almonds, dates, sultanas and brown lentils; it’s obviously bursting with goodness, but some may find┬áthe taste a little bland. Quite the opposite is the intensely sweet Faloodeh, in which strips of vermicelli come with lots of rose water and some lemon sorbet. Strong coffee, which they do well here, goes well with such a dessert! There are all kinds of veggie possibilities in Persian food, which can be enjoyably sampled at this appropriately if unimaginatively named establishment.
