Squaremeal Review of Alounak ?

Queues outside this local Persian are a reminder that it has established itself as one of the best places in town to eat minced ‘chelo’ kebabs with rice. Local Iranians and others in the know generally open the show with a mixed mezze of strained yoghurt, freshly baked bread, walnuts and mirza ghassemi (smoked aubergine, garlic and tomato). For main course, it’s also worth taking a leaf out of the locals’ book and sticking to the grilled kebabs – not only chelo, but also chicken with saffron and lemon. Essential sides include more warm bread, and basmati rice – pimped up with raw egg yolk, butter and herbs if required. BYO keeps bills in check, and Alounak also provides takeaways and local deliveries. A ‘great place’ for a taste of true Persian cooking.
