Eating

Iranian restaurants generally serve only three things: meat kabob, minced meat kabob and chicken kabob. This was a rare instance where we were served soup. The range of beverages was about the same, with imitation Coca Cola, orange drink and tea as the staples. Fizzy, a yogurt and soda water drink, was sometimes homemade, but usually came prebottled. In more distinguished restaurants, Nescafe was used as a generic term to represent all instant coffee. Iran is technically a dry country, though I did get to sample homemade wines, both red and white. And the homemade vodka had quite a kick.
