Persian Palate on a Discount

Was trolling around Ensogo Cebu one time and bought a discount voucher for Persian Palate. Take note when using a voucher: always check the terms and conditions.

Fast forward to 30 days and I'm now at Persian Palate, trying to choose a meal that would fit the Php 300 voucher (bought for Php 150) .

Lets roll out the orders:

First, and my favorite was the Chello Kebab Special:
I think this would have been Xerxes' favorite home cooked meal
It's two sticks of beef kebab on top of a serving of tomato rice with raisins, two pieces of grilled tomatoes and a small calamondin (limonsito in Visayan) for additional zest. The kebab was juicy and, just like Robin is to Batman, the tomato barbecue was a good side kick to the beefiness of the kebab.

Oh yeah, don't forget these condiments: Yogurt Garlic sauce and Chili sauce. What's great is that they serve these for free and possibly unlimited. I ordered the Yogurt Garlic sauce twice 'coz I had a hefty spread on my kebab.
Not pictured: Chuck Norris spreading the sauces on a kebab. Awesome!

Next, the good looking Falafel:
If I had a bad-ass middle-eastern alter-ego, I'd probably name it Falafel, no?

The ones that look like breaded pork chops are actually green peas patties. With the patties are lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber, wrapped in a pita. If you can't choose a vegetarian meal, then try this one for a start.

And for the dessert, I had fresh fruits with yogurt. Sorry, forgot to take a picture of this one because I was in a rush to eat something sweet. It's made up of sliced apples, bananas, and papaya, with raisins and lettuce, smothered in yogurt. Just watch out for the papaya. I think yogurt and papaya don't taste good together.
Must have been the reason they went berserk
