Unusual Foods In Iran
It is true that unlike the Southeast Asian countries, Iranian people are very conservative when it comes to food. Most people will only enjoy foods that are very similar to what they’ve had before. Kabab koobideh, Joojeh kabab or Ghormeh sabzi! But it doesn’t mean that you can’t find unusual foods here. Take a look at our list of the most unusual dishes in Iran that you must try when you are there!
If you’re planning to travel to Iranian Azerbaijan region in the summer and would like to experience a totally different food, we suggest you try Ash-e Yakh
This local food is made of sour yoghurt, ice cubes, fresh local vegetables, rice, garlic and spices. In order to prepare this food local experts will boil fresh vegetables, rice and spices then let it cool down and add sour yoghurt and ice cubes.
I am an Iranian and all the words and…
But I ask you not to ignore anything easily, because there are many things in Iran that the whole world is unaware of.
Sour Wash, Ashzarshek and Fasanjan, Sour Chicken and all kinds of kebabs
Thank you all very much
All people who have tasted Persian (Iranian) foods know that Iranian food is one of the best and the most delicious foods in the world. It doesn’t matter what the tasteless people think!!!!
Hi I’m pedram. I’m living in iran for 20 years and i haven’t ever heard the name of half of this foods like barre toodelli. I don’t know who you are or where, but i think you are tring to say iranian are nothing but savage people. Every body, never never never judge a book from it’s cover.
yeah im mohammad hossin from iran im 14 and me either wth?????
I’m an Iranian and from Isfahan but I’v never heard half of these food.
But you miss Beryan in this article
As a foreigner who has tasted most of south Middle eastern (including Iranian food as I have spent more than 7 years in Iran), I must say that your statement is false!
On the other hand what do you eat on your daily life? Potatoes? mash-potatoes? french fries and burgers? Do you call these Western food and modern?
If that is western-food then I am sure I can speak on behalf of many other open minded people that unlike you, We’d love to eat third-world country food for the rest of my life having french fries and burgers considered as modern food!
@To some others
As some people already mentioned and the title also says, these are UNUSUAL FOOD! so it is not the original Iranian/Persian cuisine that people eat in Iran on daily basis! Just like if you travel to South Korea or Cambodia! You won’t be able to see the “dog meat” served in every restaurant! You have to go to specific part of the country to see/eat that specific food!
Hope you get it guys, people eat anything and it has nothing to do with politics, your mom may like a food that you don’t! so don’t blame it on the country!
i am an iranian
hi/she is true
Just “kale pache”, very delicious food(but with closed eyes! )
As author said, they’re rare foods. I didn’t saw anybody in iran who eat a “unborn sheep”
and it’s also first time I heard it. But As I said, but “kale pache” is different
When I visited Iran I found half of these dishes, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Ash-e-yahk particularly in the northwest is very popular, readily available and thoroughly delicious. Such meats that are considered offal like hearts, kidney and liver are readily available, widely consumed and when barbecued also thoroughly delicious. Kale Pache I found in a lot of cities, ate it many times, and found the special kale pache eateries to be particularly busy around breakfast time. The food is hearty, and these vendors were always busy with locals. Usually kale pache is prepared overnight and eaten early, until there is none left.. then the establishment closes. Some of these dishes I never encountered, by the country is wide, and the cuisine differs greatly across the land. But every meal I ate, including some of those above were utterly fabulous. Perhaps some very affluent Iranians have never discovered these dishes, but they exist, taste great, and should be tried. But one thing is for sure, Iranian food is not sour. It’s quite aromatic and subtle on the palet.
My opinion is specifically for Angela.Not being Iranian but having been to Iran several times allows me to vehemently contradict your opinion. Firstly because Iran is not a Third World country … on the cintrary therefore your observation is one that should not wven be considered. You are the one who seems to be “sour” by having expressed your opinion the way you did.
Travel to Iran first .. and write about it only then …
I’ve tested some of them .
I’m sure all Iranian foods are delicious.
Don’t miss them.
im from iran .
This foods are very good and delicious.
But I did not try them all and I think iran has many delicious dishes.
Hi.I’m persian and i want to say people here don’t eat that stuff.i didn’t know we have these foods but trust me these foods are unusual and creepy here as well.
Our main food is rice not disgusting foods.
That’s a blanket statement. There are so many different cuisines throughout Iran, so you can’t say all are sour. Which specific dishes do you think are sour? Also, don’t refer to food as third-world. That is a political term, and unless we are talking about GMOs, subsidies, or the like, politics don’t apply here.
Google Translator: As an Iranian, I say to all that Iran’s food is of the best quality in the world, and it is very tasty and the food that is listed above is not well-liked by the Iranians and it only has its own fans.
Iranian food is sour and third-world
A few thousand years ago, when we ruled the world, you did not know that the world was bigger than your village. Don’t judge one of the oldest countries in the world by just one web page. I have never seen these foods.
Also your prejudice against some peoples cultures is quite disgusting if you ask. Therefore that stupid little steroetype and white energy in your head is not giving the vibe so on so I could say that the middle east had created the world you are curently living in, these histories can be seen in all history books but your idiotic head could not wrap around it; Cyrus the great created human rights without us, you are nothing.
To see Iranian food, you can go to the nearest Iranian restaurant instead of seeing photos of food that we have never seen before.
