How To Name A Redneck Restaurant
Posted on 07.16.10 by Danny Glover @ 12:32 pm

You can specialize in Persian cuisine and still be a redneck. The proof is in this Falls Church, Va., restaurant’s simple yet descriptively eloquent name:

And if you eat Persian food, as I do occasionally, that makes you an enlightened redneck. Ironically, Meat In A Box isn’t far from my first home in the Washington, D.C., area. I may have to make a trek to the old neighborhood to give it a try. I need more hummus in my diet.

  2. FYI. Although many Persian restaurants may include items such as Hummus, Baba ghanoush, Tabbouleh and Falafel on their menu. These items are not of traditional Persian cuisine and are not part of the Persian diet, especially in IRAN pronounced (ERUN). They are fine Arabic foods, which are not of a Persian origin. I think one of the reasons you see them on a Persian restaurants menu is because the general public expects it as part of a Middle Eastern diet and offers a bit of inviting familiarity to the non Persian. People are generally more familiar with Arabic foods as they are widely marketed. Persian cuisine while rich in flavor and thousands of years old is far less available in the U.S. There are many states that don’t have even have one Persian restaurant in the entire state.
