Another Trip to Crimson Garden

So yeah! I went to the same restaurant today and had lunch there too!! Big deal! I am craving Persian food these days like crazy.

Crimson Garden

Well, the thing is that I have so many things to do in Shuwaikh area these days and I see myself going there for lunch. This time I took the risk and ordered something new…. Fesenjan!!


Fesenjan is a thick chicken tart stew made of pomegranate juice and crushed walnuts! First time I tried it was at a friend house and it was homemade and tastes so good (better than the one at Crimson Garden) and instantly fell in love with it.
I also ordered Zereshk rice, which I thought comes with barberis only… but it came with nuts too. I would recommend this stew with plain or saffron rice for your taste buds to enjoy the taste and not have lots of things mixed!


After I was done with my meal… I felt like sleeping right then and there, specially that I ordered doogh for my drink…


And of course… my one-must-stop at Shuwaikh…. KDD

to get my daily fix… yeah, I SCREAM for ICE CREAM!

  1. I didn’t know they had ice cream, I thought it was just popsicles, and stuff you find wrapped in fridges :O

    • Oh they do… and whenever I am in Shuwaikh, I make that stop at KDD to get my soft ice cream hehehe! If it was TOO crowded I’d go for other places like Rawda or Qadsiya…
