When in a new city, first thing is first: must find the best Persian restaurant for that oh so frequent Persian kabob craving. Here in New York most would agree that Ravagh provides just that! Quality skewers of juicy meats with generous servings of rice and salad. But Kabob is not all that is offered at Ravagh there is also a wide range of stews and appetizers including my favorites: kashk badenjoon (smoked eggplant dish served with pita) and Gheimeh- tah deeg (Gheimeh lentil stew served over crispy rice). Best part: unlike other Iranian restaurants, Ravagh has moderate pricing for their dishes- which combined with their good Persian comfort food has led to their many years of success.
Favorites on my list: Kabobs- you can’t go wrong with any of them but so far my favorites are the chicken koobideh, chicken strip kabob, the koobideh and the barg. As for appetizers the shallot yogurt (masteh musir) is a Must! And so are all the eggplant dishes. But then again everything else is good too. What can I say? I’m a big fan and a frequent visitor.
