A couple of weeks ago my parents came down to visit me in Glasgow, Naturally, we went and took our tastebuds to a new restaurant. However before anyone rolls their eyes and says "so another Indian then?". No, it's not. We went to the Sholeh Persian Restaurant in the Tradeston area on the southside.
For mains I had the Bamieh. On their menu they describe it as "Okra slow cooked in our special tomato sauce with saffron, forest berries and onion." Because I had only recently had my first try of okra and liked it, I decided to give it try in another dish. This wouldn't go down as one of the best things I've ever eaten however this was a non-expensive restaurant and the quality was what I would expect for that price. Aside from the taste (it was tomato meets pasnip if I'm honest) I'll mention that this was a very rich dish. It did taste nice however I couldn't get through the whole thing cause it was filling me up.
This is the Zereshk Polo ba Morgh which is a "Succulent sweet and sour chicken dish served with steamed saffron rice topped with forest berries, pistachios and almonds." My mum said it was nice.
