When it comes to Persian restaurants on Westwood Blvd., Taste of Tehran is pretty new, but this order-at-the-counter cafe has quickly established itself as one of the best spots for affordable, quick Iranian food. While you can’t go wrong with any of their kebabs and wraps, your focus really needs to be on their daily specials board, and in particular, the Cornish game hen. It’s a massive portion of perfectly marinated game hen sitting on top of a huge bed of delicious basmati rice. We’d highly recommend finishing it before heading back to the office, or else expect your coworkers to vulture it all afternoon.
