When Baloogs and I crave for spicy food, we usually rush to restos that serve Mediterranean food. The urge for something spicy has been going on for a month already…weird but true. And so we tried eating here in World Class Persian Kebab. The facade isn’t that appealing…sorry to say…it didn’t look world class. But what the heck, it’s the food we’re after anyways. We had our food outside since we didn’t want to smell like shawarma.
The extensive menu delighted me, seeing prices not exceeding Php250. The food here is priced really low compared to other mediterranean/persian restaurants. Imagine 200 plus for a lamb chop. Sweeeeet! 😀
We had Shawarma on plate for Php55. Nothing special. Some parts of the beef are chewy…tough and dry. I had another pita for Php10 because 1 order isn’t enough. It was way too thin for a pita bread. It’s crispy and was served hot. We added yogurt/garlic sauce and hot sauce for some kick.
The salad that came with the shawarma consists of onion, tomato, cucumber, and lettuce. Just as expected for a Php55 meal.
We also had Shawarma rice for Php60. Don’t be fooled by the biryani rice. It’s yellow not because of the saffron, it must be some other spices or margarine they put there. The menu sounded delectable but…nottttttt.
I wish they seasoned their rice to make it “biryani” and not just call it one because it’s long grain rice they’re serving. Last and the definitely the best for the night is the chicken kabab for Php44. What we liked about it is the flavor and juiciness. It’s tender and cooked way better than the previous dishes. See I couldn’t control myself from getting a bite before we had the picture taken.
All in all, dining here is ho-hum, so-so… just okay. If you want persian food late at night and there are no other options, go here. They are open 24 hours. Get what I mean?
