Sam's Cafe & Market Restaurant Review

: So you like gelato? So you like kebabs? And you are mad about Persian food? Good eating adventures await in the small dining area of this all-Persian market and restaurant. Ask the staff for suggestions about ingredients if this is an unfamiliar cuisine, and be sure to order some Persian tea with flavors bolstered by bergamot. Our favorite dishes include the lush veggie-rich soup aush with a drizzle of yogurt on top, any of the kebabs served with rice, and the beef stew. Fresh gelati fill the cases up front. As a major plus, Sam's keeps its prices low enough so the whole family can eat in casual splendor.
