Its fantastic with kabob especially chilled in the summer, actually i quite fancy one now, maybe i’ll make some tonight:-)

Im an Iranian and Im so familiar with this delicious drink. I loved it from my childhood and like to have it with my food although its calory is too high and we can call it a complete food.

I ordered the regular doogh and was immediately addicted. I drank 2 glasses. I can’t remember the names of the eggplant dishes I tried but I’ll go back for the Doogh. I tried to make it at home last night but it didn’t turn out as well.
Wed, 30 Aug 2006 05:59:34 +0000http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=63#comment-101There is a small joint in Orlando called, prosaically enough, House of Kebab. Upon receiving news from a Persian friend that their kabobs were truly authentic (to my friend’s pallate, prepared with Khuzestan flair) I decided to go. Without hesitation, I picked out a bottle of plain Shemshad doogh and sat to enjoy my meal with a friend. Well if you’re ever in Winter Park, Orlando, House of Kabob is an affordable and posh location for lunch or an after-work snack. That aside, the doogh is really quite tasty. Savory, yes. I am familiar with airan, I have produced my own and consume it with every Turkish or middle eastern meal I can, and I frequently make my own cacik. This doogh stuff satisfies a craving I have for yoghurt, and is rather well salted (I’d say the taste is definitely acquired). So I am lucky to discover that there is an Indian market that carries Shemshad products as well as lassi and some other local varieties of doogh.
Tue, 17 May 2005 18:10:55 +0000http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=63#comment-99You don’t really have to drink doogh with anything – it’s got more than 250 calories in a bottle! Doogh is also an acquired taste. But if you’ve been to Darband and haven’t tried anything but generic mediterranean food, you’re missing out. You’ve got to have beef and chicken kabobs, filet mignon, and some stews, especially Ghormeh Sabsi. And you’ll LOVE tadig, which is crispy rice at the bottom of a pot. And try the Napoleons, cream puffs, and Roulettes next time instead of a Tiramisu. Of all the Persian restaurants in San Diego, Darband is definetly a keeper.
Tue, 17 May 2005 18:07:42 +0000http://www.plateoftheday.com/?p=63#comment-100Doogh is fab! You can just drink it alone by itself, especially because it has more than 250 calories in one bottle. It’s an acquired taste, I didn’t like the stuff when I was a kid but shit, I love it now and always will. And if you’ve only tried sandwiches and generic mediterranean stuff from there, you should go for some ground beef kabob, lemon chicken kabob, or filet mignon! Or hell, be ballsy and try a stew.
