Zeitoon Restaurant serves authentic Afghan and Persian cuisine in the heart of Brisbane's culturally diverse Moorooka.
Hear from owner Ali Mohammadi
"I came to Australia 8 years ago with my wife and my 2 kids. Multicultural Australia helped us with our first initial settlement. We opened Zeitoon Restaurant two-years ago.
Cooking has always been my passion. Zeitoon is a family business. We love to showcase our culture through our food and our hospitality.
It is also very important to us to give back to the community and country that has welcomed us.
Our menu has much in common with Middle Eastern cooking, where wheat is a staple, and lamb, poultry and yoghurt are all popular. A distinctly sour flavour is evident in most dishes, and may be achieved through the addition of lemon, pomegranate or sour oranges."
Watch Culture in the Kitchen with Zeitoon Restaurant, premiering at 5pm on Sunday, 8 November as Ali and the team show you how to make Mirza Qasemi, an authentic Afghan appetiser.
