Arya Dip Platter


at Arya (Robinsons Place)

-Ermita, Manila-

with JR, TL

Mirza Ghasemi is a Persian/Iranian eggplant dish.  Consists of eggplant, ideally roasted, then mashed and mixed with tomato puree and minced garlic, seasoned with various spices.  Like baba ghanoush but with kick. Served as a dip with flatbread or as a side dish with grilled meats.

Mirza Ghasemi (3.25)–smoky and savory, making the rest of the platter seem bland by comparison; the clear highlight of the entire meal.
Hummus (2.5)
Motobal (1.5)–aka “baba ghanoush.”
Tzitziki (1.5)

My second visit to this place (see most recently 5.080 Arya Shishlik).

Confirming my prior impression, the food was blah overall.

Tabouli (2.0)
