Isfahanian foods

The meat is incredibly rich and fatty. Biryani has a browned crust, but it surprisingly collapses into a soft mince as you fork through it. We suggest you to try it in restaurants that have just this kind of food like Haj Mahmood near Jome mosque, Azam near khaju Bridge, or Shad near Darvaze Dolat square.

doogh va gooshfil

You can find these tow things separately in other parts of Iran, but Isfahanian people eat & drink Goosh e Fil that is sweet with Doogh which is made of yogurt and swore together. One of oldest shops of this is Edalat in Chaharbagh e Paein street near Darvaze Dolat square. this is not a main dish and you can have it like an evening meal.
