Highly Recommended: Flavored Iranian Bread!

Last Summer i posted about an Iranian Tanoor in Keifan selling the most amazing Iranian bread mixed with different flavors. Sadly the municipality had forbidden it from selling “flavored” Iranian bread citing that it was not what it’s meant to do. So we lost our lovely bread.

There is another Tanoor in Mishref that sells bread with Nutella but i hadn’t been able to try it, frankly afraid the municipality would stop them again and then i would be crestfallen. Then one of Bu Tootees Relatives mentioned that they discovered a Tanoor in Shuwaikh that does AMAZING bread… of course we had to try it… so we drove there…

The Tanoor, which didn’t look too promising to me, was inside the Bakery of a market in Shuwaikh named “Souq El Meira”…  a place i usually avoid like the plaque. But now i am going to be a customer of their bakery…

There was quite a line of eager shoppers waiting for their order… here are their concotions…

We chose one Khobiz Jebn Ne3na3 and waited impatiently… the bread looked very yummy being handed out to customers… and bubbling hot!

When it was finally out turn… the bread was handed out in a paper sheet… scalding hot…

I hugged the paper sheet with my bread all the way to the car… it radiated waves of comfort and warmth to me… knowing that soon i would be eating fresh bread with oozing salty white cheese and tangy mint was making me ecstatic!

You could actually see the cheese and mint mix peeking through wholes in the bread… i had to wait though until we reached our destination 😉

See the insides of the bread? Cheese all tangy and melted… clumps of mint hanging on… that bread TASTED GOOD! So good… so VERY VERY GOOD!

I snuck that bread in my purse and went to see the Egyptian Movie “3asal Eswed” :p the perfect companion! My only regret is that i didn’t get to buy black tea from the cinema because the line was just too long and we were a bit late… so cold dark cinema, yummy strips of flavored Iranian bread, and a good movie that made us laugh! What more can we ask for? Just a cup of tea i tell you… next time insha2 Allah bs la etfatnoon 3lay 😉

Their normal bakery had white cheese fatayer…

i took one cheese fatayer to try… it wasn’t triangular… but it was good. Y3ni average fatayer not bad not amazing. The bread was awesome though.

If you want some of that lovely bread… head (or send someone) to souq al Meira, Shuwaikh… believe me it is so worth it… i wonder if Mr. Delivery can get us some for our Qraish @ work?
