FOOD STOPS: Al Fakhr's





Go on a persian food trip at Maginhawa street where you can find a unique restaurant serving this arabic cuisine with a touch of pinoy taste. Al fakhr's is orginally owned by Jim Paredes' brother, now with a new management, it still offers that fine Persian menu with things that will make you come back for more.

Located in Maginhawa street in UP Village, where there are also a number of establishments offering different kinds of cuisine. Al Fakhr's is the only one of its kind. Plus the fact that name is indeed catchy.


For us to get to know the reatuarant we got starters of Hummus, Pita, Ox brain, Falafel wrap, Keema, Grilled tomatoes and Grilled Persian Chicken. As a curry lover, I could not help to indulge with the Persian Chicken which is also a secret recipie that they formulated, and it makes you crave for more curry! The Keema goes well with sour cream or/and the tomatoes. The Falafel wrap goes well with chili or the garlic sauce. And the sinnfully delighting Ox brain which has the texture of tofu but has the rich flavor of soft meat, which can also be mixed with calamansi to have that sisig feel.


On their main course, they have their bestsellers, Beef and Chicken Kebab, Beef Curry Kebab and the Lambchop. The Both Chicken and Beef Kebab are created by shaping the meat into a cylindrical shape like a hotdog and grilling them with spices for taste. This makes the kebab very tasty with less to worry about bones. Another curry favorite is the Beef Curry Kebab which takes the Kebabs and mix them with their curry sauce. Again that the curry is great and addicting though it is not as spicy as the others. The last would be the Lambchop which you can have the option for rare, medium and well done since Lamb is very different from beef and pork better go with well done to make sure that the meat is still easy to chew and swallow.

Weighing all of the dishes tasted. I would say I would go with the Grilled Persian Chicken which blended perfectly with the curry which makes it very persian in nature but at a very afforable price!
