Persian vegetarian! One word - YUMMY!
We were driving past this eatery when we were looking for a cafe to satisfy our caffeine cravings and we discovered this amazing persian cafe in the quiet suburb of Willoughby, NSW. Situated on the somewhat busy Victoria Avenue of Chatswood, Raffi's Cafe definitely would catch your eye if you were driving/walking/cycling/jogging past. We were actually on our way to Hunter Valley for wine tasting (will blog about our alcoholic adventure next!) when we drove past Raffi. First up, the coffee was great. At $4 a cup, it didn't disappoint. After a great alcoholic outing, our rumbling tummies prompted us to quickly decide on a place for dinner and our minds instantly reminded us of the great find - Raffi's!

It wasn't busy and we got a table the moment we got there. There were only two choices for vegetarians - but both were YUMMY as!

Cabbage rolls filled with basmati rice, fresh herbs, prunes and lime juice. Served with house salad and yoghurt dip $22
This is definitely the MUST try dish if you ever visit Raffi's. The rolls were so full of spices that they were bursting with flavors and although the house salad wasn't the main star, but I must stress that it was one of the best salad I have ever ate - I am not kidding.

Vegetarian tarjin – mixture of steamed cracked wheat, okra, tomato, onion, chickpeas and potato $21

Baklava and vanilla ice cream sandwich served with Persian fairy floss $9
The baklava had a frozen touch to it and it was really something unique that's worth trying once!

Poached figs topped with pomegranate molasses, saffron ice cream and apple and rhubarb stew $14
This dessert was definitely tasty and indulging - especially the saffron ice cream, however, for $14 it was a bit too pricey.
wondering what else they have to offer? Visit their website here!
