April 4, 2018:  We went to check out Shater Abbas, a Persian restaurant, for dinner.  When I was researching for places to eat around this area of Thornhill, Shater Abbas had a website but not too many photos in general showing the restaurant’s interior or food taken by customers.

It is located in a strip mall with other local Persian businesses and also a Japanese restaurant that I have been to (Sano Sushi).

We ordered the Mirza Ghasemi (puréed char-broiled eggplant mixed with their homemade unique roasted garlic tomato sauce and fried scrambled eggs), a hot appetizer, and Vaziri (chicken leg) Kebabs to share.

Mirza Ghasemi. $7
-puréed char-broiled eggplant mixed with their homemade unique roasted garlic tomato sauce and fried scrambled eggs. Served with bread

The Mirza Ghasemi was served with bread and arrived first.  The puréed char-broiled eggplant was a mash with the fried scrambled eggs embedded within it.  It was pretty tasty.  There was also a plate of raw cut-up radishes and cilantro on the table.  Clarissa had just been to another Persian restaurant recently and informed me that the radish and cilantro was to eat together with the bread.

The combination was unlike anything I’ve had before and was pretty good.  It seemed very healthy too since the radishes and cilantro were raw.

Vaziri Kebabs

Vaziri Kebabs. $17
-combination of one skewer of marinated boneless chicken leg and one skewer of ground beef (koobideh).  Char-broiled kebabs served with saffron basmati rice and grilled tomato

The Vaziri Kebabs plate included one skewer of marinated boneless chicken leg and one skewer of ground beef (koobideh).  Both skewers were char-broiled and served with saffron basmati rice and grilled tomato.  It was so nicely assembled on the plate.

It was a big portion and nowadays a size that I can definitely share with another person.  I was really impressed with how tender the chicken leg meat was!  The seasoning was just right.  I also thought the koobideh was so well-seasoned and tender too. 😀

Great food here and the service was good.  I’m interested to come back to try their other veggie dishes and traditional dishes.

In addition to this Thornhill location, Shater Abbas has locations at Sheppard Ave East and Centrepoint Mall.
