The Way to Persia

In London today for a meal with friends, we visited Simurgh an Iranian restaurant near Covent Garden. I've never eaten this style of food before and found it very tasty. For a starter I had a minty yoghurt with cucumber and garlic, which you eat with lavash a flat bread rather like a crepe. My main course was a Duck and Walnut stew scattered with jewel-like pomegranate seeds, served with three varieties of rice and a simple green salad.

There was some lovely decoration around, including a gorgeous section of tiles behind the bar. It's quite a small restaurant, although not many people on a Saturday lunchtime in March, so when it's busy it may feel a bit squashed and the service may not be so good, but I'd certainly eat there again.
