Farsi Cafe review image

Farsi Cafe

Farsi Cafe is an excellent option when you need to meet a friend for a casual lunch and don’t have the time or patience for the big crowds at nearby spots. All of their kabobs are good, but their chicken koobideh is a particular standout. It’s juicy, buttery, and evenly spiced end-to-end. We also like their slightly sour ghormeh sabzi, a spinach and parsley-based stew cooked with dried limes, kidney beans, and tender beef shoulder. Farsi also has one of the larger beer and wine menus in the neighborhood, just in case it turns into one of those lunches.
