(farvaharpersiancafe.com) – Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington

How I heard of this place: Newly established, only nine months prior, this Middle Eastern addition to the Post Alley dining establishments was found simply by walking through the crowdless space in search of lumpia.

Type of cuisine: Persian cuisine, including kabobs, rice and traditionally popular khoreshts, with a handful of sides and bottled/canned beverages.


Ambiance: Quaint and new, this cranberry-plum-colored space is perfectly situated in a corner spot with plenty of seating. The entirety of corner counter space being used to showcase beverages, the cash register and barquette seating, the space inside can be completely dedicated to the extensive, clean kitchen. Brightly lit, despite the lack of natural lighting, a friendly Persian man stops what he is doing at the stove to greet us kindly and give us a run-down of menu items.

What I ordered: Only two hours away from our dinner reservations, we decided to break our walk from Seattle’s Great Wheel to the Sculpture Garden and back with lemonades ($2 each) all around!

What I loved: Slightly sweet, slightly tart, a refreshing afternoon pick-me-up for the sun-laden walkers.

Why I loved it: The space is quaint, clean and serves all of my favorites from childhood. While the opportunity wasn’t there to sample the food on this visit, a return trip is likely in order.

Cost: Average ($8 – $9 per lunch entree)
