Yashar; Traditional Iranian Cuisine Restaurant

Traditional restaurants are those restaurants that reflect the culture and tradition of that region. The process of setting up traditional restaurants is based on the culture and architecture of each region, for example traditional concepts that can be called Iranian, Arabic, Chinese, Moroccan restaurants, etc.

Today restaurants are the easiest way to move cultures around the world. This cultural diversity reflects the diversity of the number of concepts you can have for your restaurant. In general, in order to have a successful traditional restaurant with any concept you have considered, there are general conditions that are personalized according to the type of concept, so to set up a traditional restaurant, the exterior and interior architecture of the building should represent the tradition of that area.

(The use of furniture tailored to the concept is intended), since food represents the culture of each region, the type of food and how it is served should be based on the tradition of that region.

It should be said that setting up a traditional restaurant with ritual music is something that gives the customer the opportunity to experience differently. The traditional restaurant environment should represent one of the current cultures in every city of Iran. With that in mind, you should take elegance in the design and setting up of the traditional restaurant and make the difference well.

The style of rural houses in each region of Iran (north to south) is one of the different ways of designing traditional spaces, which of course should be accompanied by modernity. In order to set up a traditional restaurant while maintaining important elements, you need to break the structure so that you can target a large group and attract them to your space.

Setting up a traditional restaurant is a highly specialized work and requires the formation of a working group consisting of employers, employer consultants (start-ups), project architects, marketing teams, industrial kitchen design and support teams. With the formation of this working group, decisions are made to select the concept and how the restaurant works. To better understand traditional restaurants in this article, we will examine traditional Iranian restaurants.


Traditional Restaurant Launch: Investigating the Status of Iranian Food


Setting up a traditional restaurant with its special menu design can become a successful concept. Therefore, you should pay attention to the variety and characteristics of Iranian cuisine. Traditional Iranian cuisine is diverse and international.

Iran has imported Indian spices into its food, followed by inventing recipes harmonious with Iranian taste throughout history. On the other hand, Iranian spices such as mint, basil and coriander, cumin, clove and of course saffron have been one of the most important flavors of different foods in the history of Iran.

The balanced combination of fruits, vegetables, poultry meat, aromatic vegetables, seeds and their entries with leaves and rose extracts is a noble belief in the back of traditional Iranian cuisine. Such a combination is known as an excellent regimen that empowers the body and makes it healthy.

Iranians took a lot of models from Greek medical sciences during the Byzantine period. Concepts such as coldness and warmth were all defined in the ventricles of medical know-how for body balance and have greatly influenced traditional Iranian cuisine and how to prepare them. Therefore, for example, cold pomegranate seeds are combined with warm walnuts in food so that Iranian stews form themselves.

Traditional food has had a very high value and place in people’s minds for centuries, and experiencing the desire for food in traditional restaurants is an idea that doesn’t last much.

On the other hand, there are many Iranian cuisines that have a lot in common with Turkish culture. And they’ve found so much overlap that it’s hard to separate them. What is important is to set up a traditional restaurant and make original recipes based on exactly all of the menus. At the launch of Nesti restaurant under the concept is also discussed. This means that exactly the specific area where the foods are intended should be determined at an early stage.
