The kobideh is two skewers of ground beef are seasoned with olive oil, onion, saffron, jalapeño, salt and pepper, and the aromas that tickle your senses when you bite into the meat are addictive. Though it’s served with basmati rice, you can substitute it with one of the special rices. I recommend the fruitiness of the dried barberries and currants as the perfect complement to the full-flavored ground meat mixed with spices. I also order yogurt (cucumber over shallots) to balance the meat with something tangy and refreshing. And be advised, the portions are large, so I also recommend sharing.
