Trying different foods is an interesting experience and a good hobby. Come here and share your experience that you have had with new or local foods.

If you want to go to a Persian or Mediterranean restaurant, it may help you.

Persian cuisine

1-The best ones are Kabab variants such as Sultani Kabab, Jouje Kabab, Shish lik, Chenje, Kababe Barg, Kabab koobide

I recommend Sultani Kabab, Jouje Kabab (grilled chicken) and Koubide (grilled beef)

Koobide



Jooje Kabab


Sultani Kabab



2-Rice base cuisine Zereshk polo, ghorme sabzi, khoresht gheyme, khoresht fesenjan

Zereshk Polo



Ghorme Sabzi (Vegetable and Beef)



Khoresht Gheyme



Fesenjan

I also love Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Thai Cuisine, but I am not an expert in those fields. It will be better if our members share their food knowledge with us, so we know something new and may try them in nearby restaurants.

And what about Spanish and Mexican foods?

Koobide is delicous actually love a lot of Persian food. Turkish/Bosnian/Balkan food. Tried Japanese, Filipinno, Indian, Pakistani, Arabic variants of Med. food. Mexican. For one live in Chicago and surrounded with different ethnic backgrounds, two have friends that I grew up with that are of a lot of backgrounds, too.

The Turkish and Bosnian places in Chicago are pretty good.

Restaurant Sarajevo for one is good for a lot of grilled varieties of Bosnian varaints of Med. food.

Arkadas and Ala Turka are two good Turkish places.

Andie's is a good general Mediterannean place.

And Reza's is one of the best Persian places here.

Baklava, Dolma and Churba are familiar names. We have the same foods in Iran. Cevapi looks delicious, I am going to try it. I can not see some of the Photos that you have posted specially about Baklava, Kajmak, Dolma and tulumbe.

Tulumbe sounds funny, because it means Pump in Persian.

Okonomiyaki is a delicious Japanese food. Some consider it as Japanese pancake. The best okonomiyaki is the Hiroshima style.







Here is a video about a Japanese restaurant. You can see how they make Okonomiyaki.

There are two variants one is mild and one is a bit hotter. It is made of peppers and a whole bunch of other ingredients. The best ones are the home made ones, but those are naturally hard to find - although the whole sale ones are great, too. Vitaminka co. makes some good Ajvar. It tastes really good with grilled varieties. Especially with Cevapi, Shish Cevapi, Kebabs, etc...
