Seemin Persian Kabab Restaurant
Off the corner of Tomas Morato Ave and E Rodriguez Ave, lies a humble little shawarma and kebab restaurant that I frequently dine in. Seemin Persian Kabab Restaurant offers Persian and Middle Eastern food at an affordable price.
Why I like it here
There are now plenty of popular food stalls or kiosks popping up in malls and other public places that also offer shawarmas. But often times when I order from them, I find myself cheated by these kiosks when the food that they prepare only has tid-bits of ingredients spread out evenly on the pita bread to make it look plentiful. And what makes me really annoyed is that sometimes, the meat they use tastes sweet like Tocino!
These rip-off shawarma stalls charge an average of P80 to P100 and they only put a few strips of meat and vegies. I love shawarma but the business practices of these kinds vendors often lure me away from buying from them. In fact, I could say that I hated shawarma for some time because of these vendors. But not until I visited Seemin Persian Kabab Restaurant in Tomas Morato Ave. in Quezon City.
I usually order the beef “Shawarma on Plate”. It’s only P120 and it’s guaranteed that you’ll be getting a decent amount of ingredients for what you’ve paid for. A generous amount of meat and vegies that’s almost good for two. Just add an extra P15 and they’ll give you and extra pita bread.
The ambiance of this restaurant is humble. You can choose to eat outside, inside, or at the second floor. I think they have karaoke at the second floor since I would hear people singing there after office hours. They have lavatories for both male and female. I don’t think they take credit cards here, so just bring some cash just to be sure. I was also pleasantly surprised with the fast turn-around of my orders.
