Because I like to be fair with any given good. Maybe, that restaurant was not know for good food, someone said try this one, or we like this one or their serve this and that, or it been a long time ago, it's changed or any number of reasons. BUT I KNOW THIS I WILL NEVER RETURN BAAAM!

I would like to try Iranian food, but we have no Middle Eastern restaurants in my town.

I grew up eating nothing but Japanese food so I like all sorts of foods (except Indian food (India) is too spicy for me.)

I have an Iranian friend I email and he explains how his family (mother and sister) makes home cooked food (because I was curious  of the foods he ate so I asked him) and  it sounds really good.

If you give me suggestions, I will try that dish whenever a restaurant opens up here :) ....or if it's an easy dish to make, I can look up the recipe and try to make it myself. 😀

Sure. Iranian foods are very difficult to prepare. My poor mom sometimes spends like 6 hours to prepare a dish. It os very unfair:-D Some of our dishes are really delicious. For instance, one of my favourite dishes is Fesenjan. It is made of meat, onions, walnuts, pomegranate purè and some other things. It is very difficult to prepare. The food looks a bit ugly because pomegranate purè makes it very black but as you see ingredients are all lovely. You have to try it. Ghorme Sabzi is also amazing

Thank you Ally!! Yes my friend said his mom and sister take a long time to make a dish but he wasn't able to tell me exactly how it was made either. He said some ingredients but then the cooking part he didn't know, but one dish he did mention yogurt and some type of green grapes that his mom had done something special with and the he said while cooking iq other dish his mom made the food makes a crust on the bottom of the pan and he said that is very good and he was making me really hungry !! I was amazed how Iranians used so many interesting foods that we have too, but they use them in such unique and delicious ways!

Part two- Yes I got the idea too that the dishes were difficult to make and that it's a skill learned from the women folk in the family and passed on to each generation of women. I really enjoyed learning about the culture there as he explained his sister getting married and what was involved in that and that was very interesting!! He and I don't email as much as I would like to because our government watches emails sent by people from the USA to Iran and Iraq so I haven't talked to him lately but I think I will send him am email and see how he and his family is doing. He is at university now and studies very much so he's pretty busy but he does great with his English. I will look up those dishes you mentioned and see if I have a decent chance to even make them taste somewhat correctly and will lol and see if maybe there are some restaurants in neighboring towns!! Thank you for your reply Ally :)

There are  no Iranian restaurants in my locality but we eat couscous regularly, and falafel occasionally, and kebabs -- all of which originated in the Middle East but I don't know if any are specifically Iranian. We like them just fine.
