Baran, Kentish Town, London (kpw* for Week 45)   1 comment

[*kpw = kebab per week for 2013, as noted in an earlier post and the 49th entry for the 2013 Challenge]

We wandered Kentish Town for a while but found nothing but takeaways and we were doubling back to the Westport Inn when we spotted Baran, a Persian restaurant that had an interesting menu and that stipulated you must bring your own bottle. A quick dash across the street to the grocer and we were soon back with a nice Shiraz.

Jackie ordered something with pomegranate, nuts, rice, saffron and chicken but by mistake was served something similar with lamb. The lamb was so perfect, though, she ate the entire platter despite her complete aversion to anything that tastes of lamb (and don’t get me started on her and mutton). I, on the other hand, LOVE lamb. If it had been on the menu I would have had Lamb, Lamb, Lamb, Lamb, Lamb, Lamb, Baked Beans, Egg, and Lamb…with a side of Lamb.

Instead, I had some kebabs, the larger one a lamb steak and the other of minced lamb. This was one of the most sublime meals I have had this year. Baran is out of the way, but it is dirt cheap and worth seeking out…I may go back this week, in fact.
