Innovative Persian establishment dindin kitchen is to open in London’s Holborn this spring in what is being billed as the first fast-casual Persian dining concept in the capital. dindin kitchen will welcome customers to eat in a bright, vibrant 30-cover seating space to accommodate short-stay diners while also providing a take-away option. Located on the busy Gray’s Inn Road, dindin kitchen is aiming to mix traditional Persian cuisine with a modern twist to suit Western tastes. Founder and director of the venue, Vida Tayebi, said: “The concept is an entirely new and original idea, though in essence it is very simple: to popularise, and make available, a modern version of Persian cuisine which has been evolving over thousands of years. “We are going to bring Persian food up to date by adapting authentic recipes to fit a Western palate and environment.” The all-day diner will be built around a select few dishes, which can be ordered individually, allowing customers the flexibility to bundle items according to taste and appetite. The menu will focus on grills, delicious soups, savoury soufflés, rice dishes, fresh salads and healthy sides. Grills will be served as finished-to-order flatbread wraps with salad and a range of sauce options with all dishes being seasonal. On the breakfast menu will be food such as a selection of baked eggs and different wraps plus a full ‘hot drinks to go’ list. A small selection of fresh pastries, ice-cream and sorbets will be available including a unique Persian Granita topped with morello cherries, citrus juice and rose water. dindin kitchen will provide fresh and delicious food, quickly and at affordable prices, to a wide audience with age-old recipes and high quality ingredients.
