Iranian Food at Dindin Kitchen


Iranian Food at Dindin Kitchen

I’m eating around the world without leaving London and this week I had Iranian food at Dindin Kitchen. This place located in Holborn is probably best described as a Persian version of Pret a Manger; Their food selection consists of boxed salads, wraps, some hot dishes, although they are far more exotic than a Pret ham baguette.

 Most of the food is ready made and displayed on cooled shelves. You can grab a hot meal, but if you ask, they make it fresh for you on the spot. You can have your lunch on site, or take it away.

The salads contain exotic ingredients like quinoa, endives and smoked aubergines, the wraps are dressed with labneh yoghurt and  saffron mayo their hot pots consist of grilled chicken skewers, herby meat balls and stodgy stews.

I was a bit I a rush as Dindin Kitchen isn’t exactly around the corner from where I work, so I grabbed a Persian chicken salad, which consisted of a chicken, potato and mayo mixture, garnished with a tomato and cucumber salad and a tabouleh salad. For sides I decided to try the aubergine souffl├ęs. I loved the salad combo although I was missing a dressing on the cucumber and tomatoes. The souffl├ęs were eggy and fluffy, just the way I like them.

I really loved their food and it was a nice detour from the usual stuff I have for lunch. The only thing I don’t like about Dindin Kitchen is the fact that there’s only one in town. Bring on the chain.

  1. A Persian Pret? Sold! I've heard London has the best Indian food outside of India in the world. When I lived there, I just couldn't get enough of it. Next time I visit I can't wait to check this out.

  4. All sounds great - I had actually always walked past Pret a Manger when traveling abroad and wondered what they were so this post answered that for me too :D!

    1. Hope you're not confusing Pret with Dindin. Dindin is so much better than what Pret offers. :-)

    1. You absolutely can. Although I struggled finding some African countries though. I mean in terms of cuisines.
