Hey Liquid, which solid food were u referring to pls? :lol:
Any yoghurt stuff, saffron rice stuff and meat stuff. I'm not sure if Iranian food is same as Persian or just similar. So far, I'm only aware of Sofra, Persepolis and Banoo that has Turkish/Mid Eastern cuisine. Interested in looking for more options.

Liquidshadow, donch know names for the different types of dishes.
Wat I hv learnt was thru my frens' cooking.
Quite difficult to get the recipes as they do not know how to explain
in English.

...
Kitty, yes, Iran was formerly known as Persia
.....

Wizi, bear's tummy is too wobbly to belly dance
:lol:

HB,

Actually alot of Egyptian bellydancers have pretty wobbly bellies.

Its usually the Turkish bellydancers that are slimmer.

U're so lucky to have your Iranian friends teach u. I wish I was soo lucky too! However, I think HBH is even luckier!

:P

You should try Banoo at Mohamed Sultan Road. Wong Ah Yoke gave a good review recently. They even have the Shisha for after dinner.

How come hungry bear seem the sole contributor of ME food photos and details of ME cuisine.
Nice photos of food by HB.
Anyone can help HB out in this thread?
What about the rest of people who actually visit ME often?
Or who eat out often at Islamic restaurants locally.

Any forum members who are citizens of any ME country, who can tell us about their food?

What is wrong with Wong Ah Yoke's review? He is an established food writer.

As a matter of fact, I ate at Banoo and find their menu very agreeable in price and quality, as well as a very traditional Iranian environment, not to mention the hospitality.

Compared with Sofra, Banoo is a very nice place.

That will be a fair approach. Tell us what you think of their buttered rice.

HI Hungry Bear,

This not-so-lil-kitty likes Green Apple Shisha...but am not a smoker so my friends laugh when I try to inhale the fumes & wind up choking. :P

Kitty Kitty :lol:
Hv not tried, I hv a plastic filter though.
Neighbour ordered an extra one for me after our dinner at
the corniche.

...
She has her own hubbly bubbly at home but I declined
the offer to try.
Saw the preparation process but unfortunately didn't
hv my camera with me.

She enjoys apple flavour and the colour is red.
