I felt in need of a fortifying yet light lunch the other day, and thought I'd see how Rumi was faring since the last visit. It is still bright and cheery with fresh flowers in the dining room.
And the freshly baked Taftoon bread came quickly with some sweet butter.
It was nice to see a vegetarian section which had a lot of choice. The rice was delicate and delicious, and the Vegetarian Gheymeh with its lime punch was a great antidote! The Vegetarian Gheymeh contains yellow split peas and caramelized onions and usually has cubes of tofu in it. The tofu was blended into the sauce in this case, which actually was quite good. The split peas and onions are simmered slowly in a tomato saffron sauce with a whole dried lime. I enjoyed it and hope to explore some of the other vegetarian choices in the future.
