Lonsdale Kabab offers a menu of quick serve Persian dishes including a variety of kababs and donairs.
This is another one of those "Persian" restaurants which serves pretty much the usual list of kebabs and that's about it. It's a tiny place, but quite clean. Appears to be run by a middle age couple who are quite friendly.
We got the usual things, koobideh, joojeh, barg. A lentil soup, eggplant dip and doogh. Soup was pretty good. My, the eggplant? Eye opener. We were expecting the usual, but the first taste quickly dispelled that prejudice. The taste was not like anything else before. Reasonable portion size too. Thumbs up on that. Even the doogh, that was not the usual doogh that I've ever tasted. The koobideh and barg were also quite good, definitely competent, no complaints about that. The joojeh? Ooh yeah, that really did it. So amazingly tender and juicy. Oh. My. Gosh. This is close to setting a new standard.
All the plates came with a side of salad, which was not mind blowing, but very fresh nevertheless. Oh, but the rice, now that was another surprise! While it looked the same as all other places, the texture and the taste definitely put it a cut above.
We will keep searching around for "the best", but right now, this one is still recommended. I would definitely not mind a return trip and, well, it's not that far to hoof it over and give it a try yourself.
