Amoo's House of Kabob offers Persian/Iranian cuisine at 6271 Old Dominion Drive, McLean, Virginia. The restaurant has a capacity for about 50 persons and is open daily from 11:30 AM to 10 PM.
Iranian cuisine has many similarities to Middle Eastern cuisine, but its style is unique to Iran. The political animosity between Iran and many western nations has created negative attitudes toward anything associated with Iran. For this reason, most Iranian restaurants in the United States prefer to be classified as "Persian", to recall an era when Iran was the center of a great culture. Amoo's House of Kabob has a variety of tasty dishes served by a very attentive staff.
A basket of warm pita bread is brought to your table after you place your order. The bread is accompanied with butter and a spicy green sauce.
"Polo" is a Central Asian variant of the word pilaf. Shirin Polo consists of white basmati rice covered with orange peel, diced carrots, pistachios, and almonds in a sweet saffron mix. It is served with one skewer of Chicken or Lamb Kabob that has been marinated overnight with several spices.
The Salmon Kabob consists of a salmon filet marinated with a special house seasoning. It is served with Baghali Rice that has lima beans and finely chopped dill.
