Ababu Persian KitchenNovember 20, 2013
Momcee has been bugging us about trying out Ababu Persian Kitchen which is located at 75 Xavierville Avenue, Loyola Heights, Quezon City, Metro Manila just because she wants us to experience the yogurt sauce that they are serving. I gave in to her request because I am huge fan of Persian cuisine as well as anything that is yogurt.
My expectation about Ababu Persian Kitchen is that the scenario will be as of that of Mister Kabab (West Avenue branch) - lights, tables, etc. - but it was not. Yes, I am a little disappointed because I expected to much and really thought that it will be the same as Mister Kabab but it wasn't. As a matter of fact, Ababu's setup is more of a "carenderia" style with mono block chairs and tables and used a fluorescent lights. I'm not complaining, I'm just describing here. Oh well, as far as I know the place is really popular among the students nearby who craves for Persian cuisine without breaking their bank.
Here is there menu along with the prices although I'm not sure if you can really see it that much but just so you know everything is under Php 200.00
We ordered the following: Shawarma Rice Meal, Keema Rice Meal, and Beef Shawarma Wrap.

WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT ABABU PERSIAN KITCHEN?
I love that the price range of their menu are budget-friendly and that their garlic yogurt sauce is really the bomb. I can actually eat the sauce alone straight from the dispenser, haha. I also love that they served unlimited iced tea on a pitcher and not just on glasses. Yes, I was shocked when they placed an entire pitcher of iced tea on our table and Momcee informed me that that is how they serve the unlimited iced tea. I was really blown out, hahaha. Another thing that I love is their unusual serving of corn and egg which made them unique because I haven't seen Mister Kabab serve egg and corn.
Now for the downside, I'm not really sure if it happened all the time but when we ate at Ababu's our food was served about 20 or 30 minutes late. Ventilation is not enough to think that we went there in time for dinner. The store servants move so slow that we were able to call another servant from another before they finally entertained us. Sure food was good but not great because it feels like I am only eating a regular Tapsilog with a little twist.
Overall,. I'm not entirely saying goodbye to Ababu. Sure, I'll eat again but will not strongly recommend to others especially if you are fond of eating Persian cuisine like I do.
