More Faloodeh

I went again to Marafie yesterday and got some more faloodeh and saffron ice cream.
It is located on Al Hilali St... I mean Al Shuhada now (the name changed after the invasion but I still refer to it as Al Hilali) opposite the fire station and below Baba Taher Restaurant. Their phone # is 2242-7866/77

Ok if you're into Iranian ice cream there's this restaurant called Naz and it's around the Jabriyah jam3iya. Now it's not really an exciting or hip restaurant and their food is decent. BUT their ice cream is way way beyond decent. They have this ice cream either called bastaani or bustaani something like that ilmuhim uhwa eeraani oo matroos za3faran flavor and if my memory doesn't fail me they had nuts on it as well it was by far the BEST IRANIAN ICE CREAM i've ever had.

Or you could have simply went to baba tahir and had a kshk badinjan with just-out-of-the-oven bread for starter , kabab sul6ani with buttery rice and zirishk berries and cap it off with their own falooda.Mmmmmmmmmm

sorry, in office daydreaming, didn't have lunch yet. :)
