Shaherzad is Los AngelesÕ premier dining destination for sumptuous and exotic Middle Eastern cuisine, served in its bright and welcoming restaurant. For starters, the ground beef and herb-stuffed grape leaf dolmeh and the lemon and garlic hummus served with pita are great options. Some of ShaherzadÕs house specialties include the aldass pollo with lentils, sautŽed onion, raisins and dates served over rice, the white fish marinated with saffron and served with dill rice and the combination barg with filet mignon and chicken, marinated and grilled on skewers. Sandwiches filled with tender and juicy grilled meats, loaded with spices and stuffed into pitas, are other popular menu items. Though Shaherzad is a casual eatery, the food is both elegantly prepared and served.
The Turkish coffee and Persian tea perfectly complement a homemade dessert at Shaherzad, such as the bamieh, a Persian donut infused with saffron and rose water.
