What You'll Get
Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to kabobs. Get a sailor's worth of energizing Persian cuisine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of traditional Persian fare at Zaytoon Restaurant on South Durango Drive near Desert Breeze Park.
Zaytoon weaves a savory tale with its menu of Persian dishes steeped in Iranian Baazaar and Lalezar traditions. Begin the edible experience with a starter of olives or highly dippable portions of hummus or baba gannouj ($3.99 each), or dig into Zaytoon’s entrees of koobideh kebab, which skewers marinated ground beef and sidles it next to grilled tomato and basmati rice ($8.99), or the KGB, a delectable acronym for koobideh, green basil, and bread ($8.99). Tongue buds can take in the breathtaking foodscapes of Zaytoon’s signature dishes, including the beef-casserole strata of the ghormehsabzi ($10.99) and the stocky seas of the aash-e-reshteh, an Iranian soup of noodles, vegetables, and a flock of herbs ($5.99). Wrapped in homemade lawash bread, the chicken sandwich ($7.99) and beef sandwich ($7.99) sate handheld hungerers, while desserts such as baklava or french puff pastry let sweet teeth slip into something a little more saccharine.
- The home made bread was great. Large portioned entrees were delicious. Offered a variety of fresh juices. The waiter/store manager was extra friendly. – David C., 1/16/2011, Yelp
- Family owned and operated. I've eaten here at least 15 times. Very friendly service and good value for the size portion you get. – Paul M., 1/6/2011, Yelp
