Pouria is one of the coolest Iranian/Canadian friends that I've made in Toronto when I came here in 2003. Since last Summer, he's in Afghanistan as a Red Cross translator/volunteer. He writes an interesting weblog
and recently has started a photo stream
on flickr too.
Anyway, on Monday I was reading through his recent weblog entries when I hit his Weekend in Samarqand
post where he explains among other things how the kebabs in Central Asia are much better than in Afghanistan. Later he made another post with photos of said kebabs
. Damn, they look delicious!
Got past it and continued reading email, where I found a friend posting to an Iranian list this article about History of Most Famous and Most Popular Iranian Dish, Chelo-Kabab. I couldn't wait anymore. finished mail and some bug work and headed to the nearest Iranian restaurant with Hossein for a real Chelo-Kebab. Nothing to be compared to any of the photos though. Have got to go to the Iranian area of Finch and Yonge for a real treat sometime soon...
