When Ben and I were having our evening walk, we found a new Persian restaurant in the President Plaza Foodcourt.
I remembered Minoo had just mentioned to me about a Persian restaurant in a Chinese mall on Cambie Street that she would like to introduce to me before we stumbled upon this place. This must be it. According to Minoo, this restaurant is run by a brother and sister.
Ben and I shared a Kubideh which the owner told us is a skewer made with a combination of minced beef and lamb. It was a generous helping with grilled tomatoes and salad. It was the end of the day and we paid the $11 dollar dish with a $20 note. The owner gave us a change of $10 because she did not have small change and neither do us. She said it’s ok. But, we returned the next day with the family as I know Nanzaro loves Persian food. I paid her the $1 that I owed her the next day.
Nanzaro had the same dish. He loves it.
Arkensen had the Lamb Kabob. It is lamb tenderloin skewer. The Lamb Kabob is also served with grilled tomato, salad and saffron basmati rice.
Ben and I shared the Baghali Polo with Lamb Shank for CAD13.50. It is slow cooked lamb shank served with basmati rice, dill and fava beans. The lamb shank was very tender.
Our dish also came with a sauce on the side to be served with the rice.
We like the fact that Anar Restaurant is using biodegradable corn plastic which is environmental friendly.
Our meal of three items came to CAD36.75. Credit card is accepted here via Square credit card processing.
