My son, #ExhibitB, is such a fan of Behrouz’s beef kabab that when we dined another Mediterranean restaurant and he tasted the kabab there, he said, “Mom, I think we’re in the wrong place.”
I really couldn’t fault the little one for his loyalty to Behrouz’s beef kababs. For over twenty years, it has been the gold standard for beef kababs as far as his dad and I concerned.
Behrouz had its start in the country in 1985 when Iranian-born Behrouz Mojde established a hole-in-the-wall restaurant along Scout Rallos Street in Quezon City and called it Behrouz Persian Cuisine. Today, it’s being managed by his son, Modj, and his family, who continue Behrouz’s no-frills approach to managing the restaurant.
Central to Behrouz’s appeal is Beef Kabab (Php70/pc). The juicy and tender ground beef is flavored with herbs and aromatics then grilled over charcoal to produce that appetizingly smokey flavor. Honestly, whenever the fam eats at Behrouz, we order at least eight pieces because each of us have to have at least two pieces of these kababs.
The kababs go so well with Basmati Rice (Php80) with Butter (Php50). We just couldn’t imagine enjoying our kababs any other way.
We normally have Grilled Tomatoes and Onions (Php50), Ox Brain (Php80) and Hummus (Php80) with our kabab meal to bring out even more yummy flavors.
When I’m ordering for just myself when eating out with friends, I usually go for an order of Chelo Kabab Makhsos (Php300 with Basmati Rice). It combines the beef kababs, grilled tomato, basmati rice and butter, and iced tea. It may not be Instagrammable, but it brings practically all the flavors of my favorites good for one person.
Well, Behrouz is a family favorite of long standing and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
