Persian House

How I heard of this place: While on a business trip in Portland, I spent a little time sightseeing in the neighborhood and came across this establishment. After work, we returned for a glorious meal.

Type of cuisine: “A world of eclectic Mediterranean fare drawing from traditional Spanish, Italian, French, Greek, and Middle Eastern recipes.”

Ambiance: Dark, on this wet Northwest evening, the dim, red lighting of Persian House lured us in. Hardwood floors, and ambiance-laden ivy disguising white ceiling pipes give a natural, homey feel to the matching glass-topped, linen-lined tables and chairs throughout the cozy space. We admire Persian artwork adorning the walls, as we are directed to seats at the windowed restaurant-front, overlooking the rain-soaked brick sidewalk.

What I loved: The juicy chicken and flavorful kabob tasted fresh and delicious, the tomato grilled to perfection, smoky and soft. I especially loved the chocolate truffles, served alongside the bill.
