Being the oldest civilisation in the world has given Persians the necessary time to achieve culinary perfection. If you are looking for an experience that will send your taste buds on a journey deep into this wonderfully exuberant civilisation, head along to Zafron on Brunswick Street for an experience that will not disappoint. I have it on good authority that the meals produced here will rival those you will find in Iran.
I don't think I have ever come across anything quite as delicious as Fesenjan. This walnut and pomegranate stew is a mix of sweet and savory and unlike anything I have ever tasted before. I am not sure how Iranian rice went under my radar for so long, but now that I have found it no other rice compares! I have tried the majority of items on the menu here and my mouth is salivating at the thought of a return visit.
Not only is the food delicious but the owners of the restaurant really add to the experience. Fay (whom you will usually find in the kitchen with her lovely big smile) and Michael (her husband, a very talented musician) are incredibly hospitable and another reason why many people keep returning to this wonderful establishment.
