At the helm of this small, casual Persian lunch spot is Saghar Fanisalek, the chef and brains behind this South Westwood eatery. Fanisalek, who used to work as a manager at Shaherzad up the street on Westwood, is flexing her culinary muscles with tastes-like-home Persian food. The menu here is simplified—choose from plates, salads, kabobs and even wraps, perfect for on-the-go lunching. If available, try the cornish hen kabob lunch special, which comes with rice and a small salad as well as a grilled tomato (a traditional accompaniment for Persian entrees). Primarily serving as a lunch spot, beware that the portion sizes are not as grand as other Persian restaurants. And while you may not be getting a heap of food, their ghormeh sabzi stew (sautéed green herbs and kidney beans) tastes as though your very own Persian grandma made it for you.
