Taste Of Tehran

Koobideh is a minced meat kabob dish that can be found on menus throughout West LA, but our favorite is the one served at Taste of Tehran. This tiny, order-at-the-counter shop marinates all their kabobs to complete perfection. They’re juicy and tender, while still maintaining a small crunch every time you bite into one, courtesy of the grated onion inside. While the meats are a priority here (their citrusy cornish hen kabob is another standout), we also recommend getting involved with the dips. The mast-o-mousir, which is strained yogurt mixed with chopped shallots, is tangy, sour, and thick. We usually order one for the meal itself and then another for the road to spread on everything else we eat throughout the week.
