La Vida Persian Restaurant, Cyber Heights Villa Clubhouse, Cyberjaya
Had lunch at La Vida Restaurant over at the Cyber Heights Villa with the family on CNY. Really happy that my family is becoming more culturally adaptable now. Planning on making them try food from many other countries as well just so they will be mentally and gastronomically ready when I bring back my future fiancee (God knows of which race) for them to "evaluate".
Beautiful and spacious interior.
Even in the smallest, shadiest shop, these people always manage to decorate and furnish it with tasteful and refined decors to add up to their already delectable food, which is the reason why I really love dining at Persian/Iranian restaurants.
And their peoples are so beautiful. They're like the paragons of flawlessness. (Inferiority complex kicking in)
Mum was in love with the tea set (RM6.90)
Orange juice (RM5.50) and...
It is supposed to be some kind of a yogurt drink but it was unlike anything that I have tasted before. It isn't at all sweet, and I wouldn't say it is refreshing (like it was supposed to be). However, drinking this makes me feel like I've been slapped in the face because the taste is extremely strong, like my lungs are being stung by a sour, old mint tree. It woke me up, alright.
Imagine rasem (the soup you get after having banana leave rice), but more sourish and flavorful.
Here comes the food. (Fingers-crossed that I got the names right lol)
I believe this is called the Mirza Ghasemi (Google images cannot be wrong)
Both RM12.90 each, served with bread:
Zereshk Polo Ba Morgh (RM15.90)
Chicken Stewed in Iranian Sauces served with steamed Basmathi Rice topped with Barberries
Ordered this because someone close loves this and the dish reminded me of him lol.
Bakhtiyari Kebab (RM21.90)
Shish Kebab (RM21.90)
Okay, honestly my verdict won't be fair because any food cooked within the walls of an Iranian restaurant is deemed delicious, exquisite and aesthetic for me. But here they are, anyway:
Food: ★★★★ (The rice is fragrant and goooood)
Price: ★★★★ (No tax)
Service :★★★ (A little bit sluggish because they only have one cook when I was there)
Cleanliness: ★★★ (Found small traces of dirt of the plates)
