A Persian Excursion to Caspian Grill in Lafayette Hill

December 8, 2016

 

(Handle that much rhyming) Post hike in the Wissahickon, I scoped out the nearby options for a snack and was excited when I learned Caspian Grill served Persian food. This isn't something we have much of in Philly. Caspian Grill is set up with a long table of prepared goods that can be microwaved if you'd like to eat right away.

 

 

 

 

 

Fesenjan, chicken with pomegranate sauce, had an enjoyable tart flavor but was a little dry.

 

 

 

Sweet rice pilaf didn't have the glossy coating of fat that I love when served at the Russian spots in the North East and a veggie samosa was unremarkable.

 

 Spicy mushed potato and a snappy, fresh tabbouleh were  the favorites of the day.

 

Though not all of what I tried were hits, I wouldn't totally discount Caspian Grill since there were dozens of interesting looking dishes I didn't get to try.

 

Any other suggestions for Persian food?
