After a half an hour tour of the Golestan Palace, we were treated with a scrumptious lunch at the Firdousi restaurant. The setting and decor of the restaurant reminded me a lot of the restaurants that I visited in my previous trip to Morocco! It was stunning!
For starters we had barley soup with Iranian bread. After that was a buffet filled with olives, pickles, breads, and side dishes. Just when we thought that we were finished, special Iranian kababs served on a bed of saffron rice with potatoe wedges and a grilled tomatoe! Just as we finished, we saw creme brûlée that we could not resist! We ended our meal with Turkish coffee and made our way to the Laleh hotel, wether we will be staying tonight. Tomorrow, we hope to leave for the Kish island, where we will be spending 3 days!
