Shomal Kebabs & Curries by Hossein
R-4005 Level 4, Trinoma Mall, Edsa North Avenue, Quezon City, Philippines
I bet, if you’ve been reading my blog that you’ve already noticed I love Persian food. Just last week, I blogged about Arya Persian Restaurant. I’ve been craving a lot lately for comfort food. I guess this is because of the stress I’ve been feeling these days.
Here are what we ordered:
- Chelo Beef Kebab Share (Php 405)
My ever-favorite Persian menu item. Hayyyyy Hossein’s saffron rice is just superb! I can just eat their rice without anything and I would still feel satisfied.
The Chelo Beef Kebab on the other hand is ground beef charboiled with Middle Eastern herbs & Persian Spices. I actually forgot about the garlic & chili sauce already as the ground beef was enough to make me satisfy my craving & hunger! Yummy!
This actually has a solo version which is priced at Php225. Can you keep a secret? I know it isn’t enough for me! hahahaha that was how hungry I was before we ordered food.
- Chelo Saffron Chicken Kebab (Php 465)
For chicken lovers, this is Persian version of how chicken breasts should be cooked: marinated with Persian Saffron blend.
I would suggest you dip your chicken on the sauce on the plate so it won’t taste dry. It was good as well but nothing beats the chelo beef kebab! 😀
- Fresh Mango Juice (Php 130)
I don’t feel any water was combined with this drink. I loved it! It was very fresh and sweet! 🙂
- Tom Yam Goong Share (Php 173)
I wonder why I ordered a Thai dish when we were at a Persian Restaurant hahaha. So I don’t have anyone to blame but myself that I didn’t like this dish. One order of this has 4 pieces shrimp, 2 pieces tomato, 4 pieces of mushroom and lots of soup lolz! That was it! 😛

It was a very expensive meal, indeed! I don’t feel the cheaper comment from the Shomal staff. They just changed the name. That was all.
This is still one of my comfort food, I just love the food!
I really hope that next time they really open a cheaper version. This is not a valid cheaper version as they claim. It’s as expensive as Hossein. See my post about it here.
