A revisit to Persepolis in Peckham, London brought some new additions to the menu. Thrilled about my return to the southeast London restaurant, I opted for different foodie choices, eating a meze of dishes this time.

Doogh – Persepolis – Peckham, London

For drinking, choose the traditional salty but creamy doogh for a refreshing kick to your meal. With mint included too, it feels just like something you would see in Iran.

Kashk-e bademjan – Persepolis – Peckham, London

Kashk-e bademjan is one of the most well-known Persian starters. It is a grilled aubergine dip made with a range of ingredients, such as fried onions and whey. Coming in at around £4, it is a very cheap way to sample one of the Persian classics.

Ash-e reshteh – Persepolis – Peckham, London

For another popular starter dish, try the ash-e reshteh. It is a thick vegetable, bean and noodle soup that is incredibly hearty. Full of fragrant herbs, such as coriander and dill, the soup is layered with various delicious flavours. Served with a topping of fried onion, crispy bread and velvety natural yoghurt, this dish is one to remember.
