    Such an interesting parallel between Spanish and Persian food! This place looks awesome.

      Thanks, Lillie. Hopefully, Restaurante Tehran will be a permanent fixture on Las Palmas de Gran Canaria’s gastronomic scene.

      We can’t believe we left it so long, Leigh. That won’t happen again.

      Well, the rose petals turned up in the flan. Another of our favourite desserts is the Iranian ice-cream. Such a sophisticated flavour.

    I love Kebab! With meat of course. I can’t imagine it without beef or chicken. Yummy. And so lucky of you to witness a belly dancing show. I haven’t been to one myself.

      Who doesn’t love kebab? Although Restaurante Tehran don’t do the ones we remember from our UK days, smothered in chilli sauce. We’ve been to more belly-dancing shows in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria than anywhere else we’ve lived, which surprises us a little.

    I’m glad to hear Spain is finally opening up to other cuisines. We don’t have too many Middle Eastern places in Seville, despite the Middle East’s influence on gastronomy in southern Spain!

      That’s the joy of living in a cosmopolitan city like Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Cat. Having enjoyed your Tapas Thursday posts, Seville seems to be feeding you well. Although, as they say, variety’s the spice of life.

      Oh my, Dan, we’ve given it try after try. And it’s still our favourite.
