I wrote about Kasra over on Chowhound years ago.
It’s one of my favorite places and for sure my favorite Persian restaurant in town.
My favorite thing there is also one of the simplest. At Kasra, they call it the Kubideh Combo. One skewer each of ground beef and ground chicken, served with the typical Persian Pile-o-Rice and Scorched Skin Tomatoes. Other things I like are the lamb shanks, (melt in your mouth, man!), Jujeh Kabobs, Chenjei and supposedly the best hummus on town.
As for the “Persian Pile-o-Rice and Scorched Skin Tomatoes”, I think Persian joints treat them like fried rice and an eggroll at Americanized Chinese restaurants - just what they do. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t object at all, but I sometimes (often!), pay the upcharge for a skewer of grilled veggies, (onions, bell peppers and squash), in lieu of the tomatoes. No getting around the rice though. In fact, to be truthful we rarely eat lunch there anymore due to my usual lunchmate’s diabetic concerns with the rice.
But I intend to head over there today for personal reasons. I just thought you should know.
