The food's delicious, the menu is an entertaining read full of wisecracks, and the people who run the shop are just lovely.

in Peckham is my most prized spot to dine and settle down for awhile.

It's both a shop and cafe that stocks an impressive array of Persian ingredients, books, teas, sweet treats, knick-knacks, postcards and more. The cafe is situated in the shop with its seven and a half tables. You're spoilt for choice with their regularly updated list of specials as well as their unchanging menu with some tasty little numbers.

One of my personal favourites is the Baked Sweet potato filled with Persian Baked Beans and Halloumi.



Me and my eating partner normally stuff ourselves silly with the savoury goodies but this time we left room for dessert. I had the Iranian Cream Cakes served with Kaymak which were dreamy!



Mrs Shopkeeper Sally Butcher has produced four cookbooks that are sold in-store. Persia in Peckham, her first book, was shortlisted for the 2008 André Simon Award. Get in touch with the shop-keeping couple on their website, for local cookery classes with the master herself.

It's a fantastic place to gain inspiration for your Persepolian cookout as well as a cafe where you'll only be truly satisfied until you sample every dish off their menu.
