We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 12:15pm). The inside is spacious with the market, several tables and a small patio area out front.
The market has a mix of goodies to peruse; tea, bread, dried fruit, spices, sauces, etc. Apparently, their shallot sauce ($2.99) is amazing (according to one regular).
Closeup of a few of their desserts.
Menu is small with appetizers, main dishes, salad and desserts.
Actual menu if you wanted to take a closer peek.
We wanted to try the fish with rice but it wasn’t available that day.
One of the workers was seriously the sweetest person; she gave us samples before we ordered. So cute that she thought we’d never had Persian food before.
Easily the best dish we ordered. Lamb was fall off the bone tender and juicy. Price can’t be beat.
The yellow peas were tasty and held their shape.
Salad is of the iceberg variety (meh) and rice was mixed with barberry to add a touch of sweetness.
Both meat skewers were well marinated and tender. Ground beef was the tastier option.
Awesome you can get Persian eats without having to trek all the way to North Van. Will be back to Sehal to try more things.
