FOODIE FIND: PERSEPOLIS, PECKHAM

Persepolis is a shop within a cafe, or maybe a cafe within a shop. It specialises in Persian (Iranian) food and is situated in Peckham, London SE15 rather than Edgware Road.

There are several online (pre-pandemic) reviews:

We haven’t visited, only used the website to place orders. This second order was small, because judging whether a product is gluten-free or low carb, is guesswork.

The tool in the foreground is a falafel maker. We have been buying frozen Good Life 14 falafel with lemon, cumin and coriander 280g from Iceland, for some time so jumped at the chance to make them ourselves.
