Archive for December, 2007

We went on a cold winter evening and the restaurant was cold. Starter was Kurdish dips (basically, hummus, tsatziki (cucumber and yoghurt) and rather bland aubergine dip). Excellent flatbread. Main course was Kozisham which was described as ” Rice, raisins, lamb and chicken cooked with a touch of mild curry and wrapped in a Kurdish pastry”. This was served with stewed vegetables in a tomato sauce which was excellent but the Kosisham had too much rice, was rather dry and I neither found a raisin nor detected a curry flavour. Finished with Kurdish tea (tea flavoured with cardamom) which was good. Overall, it was OK but the cold meant we didn’t feel like lingering and I felt a bit over-carbed at the end of the meal – I should probably have had a kebab. About £22 each including 2 bottles of wine between 4. One of two Kurdish restaurants in Tollcross – we enjoyed Hanams in Brougham Place more, but that was in summer.
