Since Childhood Caesar’s has been one of my favorite places for its Chinese food and pastries. This weekend we wanted a change of scene so headed off to their Iranian and Turkish specialty restaurant. Its in Farwaniya next to the Co-op and commercial bank building.
I was intrigued by the Saudi Champagne on the drinks list and we started off with some Fried Calamari and Cream of Chicken soup. The ‘Champagne’ it turned out was a blend of Apple juice, club soda and finished off with some chopped apples and mint leaves ! Oh well at least it was served in a champagne flute.
Main course was the Iranian Ramsa platter. Its a mixed grill platter with mutton kababs, shish kababs, shish tawok, grilled chicken, grilled hammour and grilled prawns. It comes with fries and rice. They say it serves 4 but we could only finish 40% of the meal. I would say that for an average person this meal can easily satisfy 6 or 7 people. We skipped dessert as we had reservations at Cinescape, maybe next time.
Overall, The calamari was excellent, soups were rich and creamy and the mixed grill had a little of everything to satisfy all meat lovers. I would visit again to check out the other items and also try the Iranian desserts.
