Abbasi Hotel Teahouse information
The setting at the rear of the hotel’s courtyard is a delight, and while you might need to start singing to get a waiter’s attention after 6pm, when locals flock here to eat ash-e reshte (noodle soup with beans and vegetables; US$4.50), it’s well worth the effort. Snacks include halva (a sweetmeat made of sesame seeds and honey), dates, warm beetroot and fereni (a sweet pudding made from rice flour, sugar and rosewater). Order and pay at the cash register and then give the docket to your waiter.
