Pooneh Niakian, born in Iran but living in Portugal since the age of two, decided to open a restaurant with typical Iranian dishes, to teach the people of Lisbon what Iranian food is, how to eat and tell the country's history through some of the dishes . The couvert is toasted dried fruit caramelized with cinnamon and other spices and barbari bread, a kind of focaccia with carrot pesto and sun-dried tomato. There is a soup called Asheh Reshteh, rich in cereals and spices served with onion and caramelized mint, which is eaten on the Iranian New Year; Kookoo Sabzi, a herb frittata on a bed of cucumber and fennel yogurt, a “picnic food”; Joojeh Kebab, one of the most traditional, here with chicken breast served in naan and with Shirazi salad, with tomato, cucumber and red onion cut into small cubes or Koofteh, a spicy beef kebab and lamb.
