Last week I finally got to meet the adorable Siamack
Salari. He's not only one of my favorite iranian.com writers
but we've also had a long distance relationship of sorts. For the
past few years Siamack and I have been on a diet competition.
Of course after the first few months we never took it seriously
but we do tell ourselves from time to time that we should get it
going again, soon.
we met for lunch at Alborz -- San Francisco's best Iranian restaurant
-- none of us mentioned the diet until our bellies started to ache.
We ordered something from every categorey on the menu. For the
Siamack ordered Shirin
quite a chef himself) with boiled chicken, and I went for
Polo with lamb shank. Mm...Mmm...
Siamack, who lives in London with his lovely Indian wife/business
partner Varinder and little twin boys, was a on a short business
consumer monitoring company, Everyday
Lives (do check out the web
it's cutting edge).
By the way, he told me some good Indian jokes, but
I think for the sake of his marriage, I better not repeat
Who's your Iranian of the day?
