Update III (21.01. Protected content
Dear IN friends,
Here are a few updates for our event:

.I had a conversation with the restaurant manager. He agreed to extend our time up to 23:30, so we can stay and enjoy longer. The kitchen will be closed at 22:00, but the bar will remain open.
.I suggest to everybody show up before 20:00, so we all can order and enjoy dinning together.
.The entertainment program will start on 20:30
.As always, it will be hard to find a place to park your car in the street. There are a few paid parking:
> Alnatura Supermarket parking ( open till 22:30)
> LuisenForum parking (open till midnight)
Alternatively you can use public transport, the closest station is LuisenForum.
.Make sure that you won't have to drive home under influence. Drinking and driving don't go well together.

See you soon!

Activity description:
Persian Cuisine stretches back through the annals of time and its excellence can be found being reflected in ancient Greek texts.

The Greeks wondered in astonishment of the mouthwatering feasts of Darius the Great and Xerxes. Evidence of these lavish feasts can be found on the walls of Persepolis which is modern day Shiraz. On these walls, it depicts the Nowruz feast where citizens from across the Persian Empire would come to give the Shah gifts.

What do Iranians eat? Due to the range of culinary traditions across the Iranian provinces, food in Iran is extremely diverse. Common to all the Iranian provinces however, is the fact that Iranian food tends to be both healthy and nutritious.

It includes a wide variety of foods ranging from Chelow Kebab (rice served with roasted meat), Khoresht (stew served Iranian rice: Ghormeh Sabzi, Gheimeh, Fesenjān, and others), Āsh (a thick soup: for example Āsh-e anār), Kuku (vegetable soufflé), Polo (rice alone or with addition of meat and/or vegetables and herbs, including Loobia Polo, Albaloo Polo, Sabzi Polo, Zereshk Polo, Baghali Polo and others), and a diverse variety of salads, pastries, and drinks specific to different parts of Iran. The list of Persian recipes, appetizers and desserts is extensive.

To taste true Iranian food, it is necessary to eat at an Iranian’s house. Since most restaurants in Iran limit the food they sell to different types of kebab and there is therefore, very little variety.

Even if you are staying with an Iranian family, it is likely that at some point you will eat in a restaurant (eventually a traditional one) and if this is the case, you are likely to be happy with the standards of cleanliness and hygiene. As with any country however, it is advisable to only eat hot food from street stalls and you should make efforts to observe how the food has been cooked e.g. ensuring sufficient standards of cleanliness).

Let's meet and enjoy Persian cusine!
Everybody will pay separately.
