Kandoo - London

This is about a Iranian meal we had in London.

We had dinner at a Persian Restaurant called Kandoo located on Edgware Road but at the nicer end near Maida Vale. This is a small restaurant and is cheap and functional. A large Tandoor dominates the dining room. The breads that they serve are really very nice.

To start we had Mirza Ghassemi which is a version of Baingan Bharta. Mild, and comforting. For our mains the Queen of Kutch had Chelo-Kabab Barreh Makhsoo which was a skewer of Lamb fillet and a skewer of Lamb mince, both grilled with rice and a grilled tomato. I had Khoresh Ghormeh Sabzi which is finely cut parsley, coriander, Kidney beans and lamb, flavoured with dried lime. This is served with rice. I once had this probably 20 years ago at my friend Reza’s house when his grandmother cooked this. The Queens kebabs were amazing. The quality of the meat used and the skill of cooking were very high. My curry was nice too, though it does not photograph well.
