Kurdish tastes of home wins over customers in Erbil

By Farhad Chomani 2/9/2017
-
Ramazan hopes to revive the Kurdish palette with his traditional dishes.

He attracts customers to his restaurant in Erbil from across the Kurdistan Region including regular clients who are foreigners.


Dolma, kuba, kifta, and sar w pe are some of the favorites. Customers brag about the restaurant's cleanliness. 


But the menu is always changing based on the day of the week. One day may be goose and the other sheikh mahshi or turkey.

"I personally wouldn't appreciate having rice and soup every day," said the owner Ramazan, who has steadily grown Tam Dar restaurant in the Tayrawa area near the Endowment Mosque into one of Erbil's best kept secrets.

They forgot to mention the hygiene level at the restaurant. Absolutely disgusting . Dirty plates. Dirty waiters . Glasses with food stains on them. How about you clean up before serving food. Foreigners like myself avoid local restaurants because of the unhygienic levels . We prefer the expat restaurants where it's actually clean

Slowly bust surely Kurdistan Baûur is turning into society of MEN only with no place for WOMEN. I Blame the so called secular politicians for this ugly picture. I think they're trying to catch up with Afghanistan and Gaza ?????

@Riza you sound like some envious competitor, I've been there and didn't see any of the things you mention. They had great food, clean plates and friendly staff. I got food poisoned once and it was in one if those fancy "expat restaurants" but never had any issues with the local restaurants, not saying it never happens but just because the restaurant looks fancy is no guarantee that they have good food or high hygienic standards

No Arshad I'm not a competitor . I wish I was . Would have for sure done a better job. And yes it's a filthy place . Please have a look into their kitchen next time you are there. Or maybe your hygiene levels are low anyways so you don't care. In any case, please visit Dubai or Beirut and look for hygiene . You will then understand what I mean
