Rasht, Destination of food lovers

This city is located by the Caspian sea. it comprises a population of around 640,000 inhabitants. Food and the way of cooking is an important part of people’s life in Rasht. Weather and water resources like Sefid_Rud river have an important effect on the way of cooking in Rasht. In fact the city and its gastronomy sector benefit from a rich variety of natural resources. They rely on the exploitation of local resources, especially various species of fish and in_season products.

What to eat in Rasht?

Ethnic delicacies in Gilan are numerous. You would normally find the famous Sour Kebab (Kabab Torsh in Persian) with Zeytoon-Parvarde( ), and Mirza Ghasemi (a vegetarian eggplant, tomatoes and egg dish) on the menu wherever you go. Sour chicken (Morgh-e Torsh)Aloo Mosamma (a chicken and plum stew that I die for!) and Torsh Tareh (a vegetarian stew) are among my favourite dishes in Rasht. We also tried Anarbij, a stew made with walnuts, minced meat and vegetables and I thought it was fine. It’s almost like Fesenjan but with a sour twist. Baghali ghatogh is also quite popular which is again a stew with vegetables, garlic, beans and eggs. As you can tell, vegetarians won’t have any problems finding delectable dishes in.
