Babani's Kurdish Restaurant

544 St. Peter St. St. Paul, MN 55102 | St. Paul (Downtown) | 651-602-9964

Location Description:

Notched your belt with all your eastern-Mediterranean cuisines, have you? Your Lebanese, Egyptian, and Syrian? But ask yourself, have you eaten Kurdish? Probably not--if you haven't been to Babani's, which looks to be the first Kurdish restaurant in the nation, a quiet corner shop where one can sample Kurdish tabouli, shish kebabs (weekends only), and dowjic, a lemon-chicken soup thick with rice and enlivened with basil and a tangy hint of yogurt.
