My craving for Persian food was satisfied with my visit at Arya with my mom. We started with The Arya Dip Platter consisting of Hummus, Motabal, and Mirza Ghasemi. The dips were served in a single platter that was divided into four parts. It comes with a pita bread.The pita bread that came along isn’t enough, so we had another order. It’s really good!
We also ordered for a salad,Tzitziki, a combination of chopped cucumber, tomatoes, onions with a good amount of lemon juice. The labneh was also good.
For our main dish, my mom ordered the lamb chops and I ordered beef koobideh.It’s made of seasoned ground beef that’s formed into skewers and grilled. The meat is so tender and juicy plus the flavors of an authentic Persian spices. It is so delectable! It came with a salad and grilled tomatoes which our waiter peeled and mixed with spicy sauce.To prepare the grilled tomato sauce, the tomato is first peeled, then mashed and then seasoned with freshly ground pepper and topped with a spicy sauce and a yogurt garlic sauce.
Arya’s ambiance is cozy, it has a outside sitting for people who wants to sit outside and enjoy their shesha. It has a good value and excellent staff. It was a very pleasant dining experience.
The restaurant is located at Second Floor, Robinsons Magnolia, New Manila, Quezon City, Philippines
