A meal fit for a Shah

I think my favourite thing of all at A Taste of Persia has to be the Sabzi-o-panir - mixed fresh herbs, depending on what's in season, with feta cheese. Last night there were sliced fat radishes and a couple of spring onions too. When it's married with a piping hot flatbread, just out of the oven, and the Mirza ghasemi dip (a weird but wonderful mix of aubergine, onions, garlic, eggs and tomato) then the taste is out of this world.

I rather like their home-made baklava too - full of pistachios, and not sickly sweet and dripping in honey, like the Greek stuff tends to be. It goes very well with an espresso, that's for sure.
