It's all Persian, all the time at this cool Brockton Village resto. The popular Middle Eastern stew haleem is a tremendous exemplar of the kind of authentic Iranian dishes guests can expect here. Other tasty real-thing menu players like dizi (a Mesopotamian stew traditionally served in Iran's tea houses to sustain workers through a long day) and kashk (a preserved food made from wheat or barley mixed with sour milk or yogurt) offer the rich, garlic-spiked, yogurt-smoothed flavours that characterize the full complement of Takht-E Tavoos's menu. Sunday brunch attracts families and hungry locals. Service is friendly and the premises are clean and cheerful.more...
If you’ve never had an OMG moment with Persian cuisine, head straight to Tavoos’ College Street spot for brunch and order the infamous Kalleh Pacheh dish. This is the stuff that celeb chefs like Anthony Bourdain travel the world for, and we can find it right in our backyard. A soup made from sheep’s head, hooves and tongue, with picked garlic, lemon juice and a glass of house-made chai. You’d think you were in Iran.
Get ready to eat, because Tavoos’ Dizi Sangi is for those who have worked up an appetite. The dish consists of stewed lamb shank, lamb rib, chickpeas, white beans, potatoes, onion and tomatoes. Made and served in stone pots, called “dizi,” it takes a total of four hours for the dish to cook! The Dizi Sangi is served in two courses, the first being the drained broth, to be sipped and soaked up with torn pieces of flatbread, and then the stew is turned into a puree to be eaten with more flatbread and fresh scallions
My first time at Tavoos, I waited two hours to get a seat (Tip: Get here early during weekends), but man, was it ever worth the wait – so much so that it warranted another visit. Tavoos is a Persian-style brunch restaurant, complete with sweet cultural decor. Each dish is inspired by a traditional meal from different regions in Iran. If you enjoy spicy foods, try the Bandari, a halal sausage and egg dish, mimicking that of the Persian Gulf. Their haleem, a steaming porridge made with shredded lamb, is hands-down my favourite. Their Persian chai is also a must-try.
