With just a couple of tables out front and dozen or so squeezed in inside, the stalwart Iranian cafe is an absolute spot for anyone looking for a long lunch or dinner alongside enormous flatbreads and juicy Persian kebabs. Their freshly made breads - an intrinsic part of any meal - are superb . You spoon a dollop of shallot yoghurt, you wipe it up with bread. You eat a chunk of lamb, you wash it down with bread. You enter a conversation you’re not keen on, you muffle yourself out of it with bread. It’s key, it’s essential, and Patogh’s big special Persian bread - roughly the size of a sombrero - is some of the best around.
