Tried both Persian cuisine and shisha for the first time last night and I liked it!! Stayed for a few hours while drinking, "shisha-ing?" and pigging out since there was a weekend market and we bought diff food from diff stalls and brought them here.

We got the Happy Habit and ox brain. And strawberry flavor for the pipe128516 Overall, it was a fun experience! I love the white sauce wished I could take it home128541 Will try it again if i get another invite.

My next target to review in the next days is the area of Highway Hills. I don't why it's called that. Do you have an idea?

Habib has always been in the Greenfield Market and I've tried their Shawarma twice, both with humus incorporated in it. They don't have it on their restaurant so I got them separately. For some reason it's still better done together. The humus I had was bland, almost tasteless. The shawarma though was good and had generous filling of tender beef.

I also had a platter of boneless chicken which they call Chelo. It's combination of ground chicken and cubes. It could have been better if it was 'saltier'. I was somehow struggling to find a more tasty feel in this dish. Love the tomatoes, grilled right.

The place was inviting, being in the corner around Greenfield area. I was looking, no craving for something new. I tried their beef stew which I forgot the name but apparently not available so I settled for an eggplant and chicken dish called Khoresh Bademjan. I so loved the sauce......128525128077🏼 I mean it's like the Persian version of our Kaldereta or The Korean beef stew. I will definitely come back to try their other dishes.

Went to Greenfield weekend market after watching Up Dharma Down live at their Dharma lights concert. Most of the restaurants in the Promenade mall were already closed, so I had no choice but to look for other choices. I went to Greenfield district around 11:30pm and surprised that most of the stalls were already wrapping up. Thank God I still made it to the last piece of shawarma. I ordered for the regular one but the chef gave me a special shawarma, as he said that I'm already the last customer that night. Yay! Thanks for that, sir! 128513

I did some smalltalk with him and told him that I already went to their restaurant and tried some of their dishes in their opening month last year. He told me to go back because they had some new dishes on the menu and I told him that I will very soon.

The shawarma was surprisingly less oily and generously filled with everything you'd want in it. It was a little spicy though but was really good.

Didn't meet my expectations when it comes to beef kebab. Though the ambiance and store hours are great, they are open til' 5:30am, great right? But the food was just okay, nothing special. 128529

"Beloved," the English translation of Habib. A romantic word used for a restaurant. The question here is... will we love their food?
The Food:
Beef and chicken meat, the best of both worlds in two long strands of Ishli Chelo Kebab. Strong force of beef and its spices that lessened the presence of chicken. My favor on beef chelo kebab led me to loving this dish completely, together with saffron basmati rice. I really think Filipino men will be in favor of Habib's standout dish, especially if rice is still part of their diet.

Habib tries to converge art and taste in one plate as they play with chicken and beef once again through this dish, Habib Chicken & Beef Wrap. Flipped and a more mellow version of the earlier chelo kebab, where beef stays inside wrapped by grilled chicken meat

The Ambiance:
Facing Edsa Central mall and the soccer field-like greens, Habib doesn't catch too much attention from passersby. Although when people start to hangout at night, with its shisha aroma, you get to notice the Persian restaurant more.

Pray, Eat and Love.

I got the mixed chelo kebab while the others had the special beef kebab, shawarma, keema and pita bread with 3 dips (hummus, mutabal and the other one which I forgot).

I enjoyed the kebab. It has a big serving of basmati rice and you are given your own butter (like in McDonald's pancakes) which you then mix with the rice. We enjoyed the pita bread because it was warm and not too thick. The dips were good too. I wasn't able to taste the keema though.

The owners were friendly too. My dad chatted with him while his wife gave my niece some sweets.

I'm searching for places to eat in Greenfield District last night. I passed through many restos but I'm still looking for something new and noteworthy(?). Then, I passed through this resto just beside the Bed bar, and saw they're serving kebab and all other Middle eastern dishes. That got me interested to try their kebab here. So, no more second thoughts and i went inside to get a table.

The place was not full so i believe that the AC was not even in its full power. Parang mas mainit pa nga dito kesa sa labas. 128517 I got a piece of both Beef & Chicken kebab, 2pc Poita bread & their signature Middle Eastern dessert: Baklava.

I actually ordered for Cream puff first, but I asked the server if they could replace it with Baklava and yes, they would. The kebabs were quite pricey than those in Behrouz, but, at least 20% bigger? The chicken kebab was quite bland for me, while the beef kebab was totally good.

The Pita bread was quite toasted, or maybe they left it over a minute in the pan? But not bad though.

The Baklava tasted good, but I can't explain it very well. It was sweet, yes; but there's something on its taste that makes it more interesting. Generally, not your usual dessert. Also, the serving was quite little. Or let's say, as small as a 1 peso-pudding. 128517

Will surely go back here to try their buryani as well as the meals with Basmati rice. They also offer shisha by the way. Not a kebab expert, but this place worths a visit.
