Huge Iranian Food Tour!! INSANE KEBABS + Cherry Rice!! | Best Persian Food in Los Angeles!!
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Los Angeles is home to a large Iranian community in a variety of different areas of the city. Today, we’re taking you on an ultimate and unforgettable Iranian (and Persian) food tour in LA, and I can’t wait to share all the delicious food with you now!
Huge thank you to Nia & Sahra, who are both originally from Iran, now living in LA for joining me on this epic day of Iranian food. Follow their food adventures here: https://www.instagram.com/gooshtlovers/
Here are the places we ate at in this LA food tour:
Attari Sandwich Shop (https://goo.gl/maps/zFLeYGhhLnWb8NfUA) – We started off this Persian food tour in Tehrangeles, one of the first Iranian communities in LA. One of the most legendary restaurants is Attari Sandwich Shop, where along with many dishes, they are famous for their lamb tongue and brain sandwich. It’s so good!
Saffron & Rose Ice Cream (https://goo.gl/maps/FiTNGNMSGPGY4Wnw7) – Across the street you’ll find Saffron & Rose Ice Cream for fantastic Persian ice cream and Shirazi style falooda.
Raffi’s Place (https://goo.gl/maps/5SxePFudUDPHzJGL9) – If there’s one Persian restaurant in LA, or in all of the United States that you must try, it has to be Raffi’s Place. We had the honor to meet Mr. and Mrs. Raffi, they showed us around their amazing restaurants and we ate lunch with them. They have a hugely inspirational story of how Raffi’s Place became one of the greatest Persian restaurants in LA, and the food is outstanding. Don’t miss all the different kebabs and varieties of rice.
Nersses Vanak Restaurant (https://g.page/nersses?share) – Finally to complete this ultimate day of Iranian food in Los Angeles, we went to Nersses Vanak Restaurant, a relaxed, and again family run Iranian restaurant. Along with a full menu of kebabs and stews, one of the main dishes to eat is their legendary dizi – a stew of lamb, beans, and potatoes, cooked down until fall apart tender – it’s a favorite dish of Iran for me. Their lamb shank is also pilgrimage worthy.
And that completes an amazing day of eating some of the best Iranian food in Los Angeles – in the United States!
