Foodie ways to see Iran


Chelo Kabob in Tehran

Succulent pieces of lamb or chicken kebabs cooked over charcoal and piled high onto mounds of buttery rice are one of the cornerstones of Iranian cuisine. Served with grilled tomatoes, strained yoghurt, fresh herbs and crunchy sour pickles, chelo kabob is found on practically every street corner and restaurant in Iran. For a high-end version, visit Shandiz restaurant , Nayeb , Alborz or Moslem in Tehran. Their grilled lamb chops topped with tangy sumac are unmatched for richness and flavour
