Chelokababi in Sunnyvale, California

Joojeh-Koobideh Combo

After finishing a day's worth of meetings today, I needed some food. At first, my mind went through the usual South Bay options of Mexican and Vietnamese, but then somehow the thought of Persian food appeared. I quickly punched the word "Persian" into Google Maps, and a million listings came out. I came here because it was the closest (1236 South Wolfe Road, 737-1222).

They had my usual koobideh at the top of the menu, but they also had some kind of a joojeh chicken that was their speciality. I thus went for a combo of the two, finding the chicken a bit on the dry side and the koobideh a bit on the (oddly) sweet side. I still ate it all, but next time I think I'll try one of the millions of other Persian places around. There certainly wasn't any shortage of them.

Gulzaar's food is consistently delicious. It's a hole-in-the-wall with a laid-back, peaceful ambience though the surrounding area may look a bit sketchy. I always get the chicken tika plate, chicken samosas and zaatar bread.

It's also near the Falafel Drive-In place if you want something quick and tasty.

Dish Dash, either in Sunnyvale and Milpitas is also reliable. I like the Baklava Crumble dessert together with a cup of Arabic coffee.
