From now on, Mike will be one of my top sources for restaurants to go to…..We are always on the lookout for good Persian restaurants and so far there is our number one favorite, Hossein’s Persian Kebab and a recently discovered one, Sinbad’s ( http://heart-2-heart-online.com/2007/06/21/sinbads/), which was through Mike also. And now there is Persia Grill to add to the list.
Raphael (Raph), son of Gloria Diaz, works there and we got to meet him two weeks ago. Thanks to my eating mate, Brenda, for always accompanying me. Raph introduced his good friend to me, Kian, who owns the restaurant. I read somewhere that Kian was one of the housemates in Pinoy Big Brother Season 2. His father owns Kazemi carpets outside San Lorenzo Village.
The restaurant was full during lunchtime with office people in big groups. Dinner time would probably be less crowded.
Mike specified to order GBX (ground beef express) and sure enough, it was really good. MAKE SURE YOU ORDER GBX. We ordered several business meals ( you can’t see what is under the rice ) since it came with rice already and came with butter on top which melts right when it reaches your table. The lamb chop was really good too. The fruit shakes looked really good but we did not get to try them instead we took photos of the shakes of our next door table You can have it with yogurt or without. For dessert, Raph recommended the leche flan which he says is homemade and really the BEST……IT IS TRUE!!!
The food is really very reasonable and yummy. TRY IT!!!
